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.
