Our Purpose

“Our Purpose,” New Era, Jan. 2006, 49

Our Purpose

In order to find the purpose

Of our own life,

We have to

Lose it.

We have to stop worrying

About our own well-being,

Our own happiness,

And just think about how we can help

Another brother get home.

And then maybe

We can find our own path

By showing

Our brother the way back.
