Being Me

Smallest Cog In Machine
We all have a place in the world it is said
And some are the leaders and some are the led.
We all are the parts of a great big machine
Where wheels, great and small, work with places unseen.
Consider your watch - Which part would you choose
As the most necessary - the springs or the screws?
The nuts or the bearings, the large cog, the small -
Which one makes it go? Which part most of all?
Take your car - could you do without wheels, without tires?
The batteries, magneto, the spark plugs, the wires?
If you'd take off the steering wheel, take off the clutch
Or remove all the brakes - would it then be worth much?
No, the greatest fly-wheel could not spin without grease
And it's held in its place by one small, simple piece
So don't be dismayed when you seem in a rut,
You're important - though you may only be a rut!
Richard Maxwell

      "It's Not Easy Being a Bunny" by Marilyn Sadler tells the story of P.J. Funny Bunny and his desire to be something other than a bunny. As the story proceeds, P.J. tries to be a bear, a bird, a beaver, a pig, a moose, a possum, and a skunk. In the end he realizes that what he really wants to be is a bunny.

      Each one of us are made by God to be just who we are and not someone else.

Dear Lord, Thank you
  • For making me to be me
