Inspirational Poem “Do what you love”
You know,
I can hear what you are thinking, right?
It’s real, this love I have inside of me
And I can’t contain it
That’s why I do all of these things
Writing, Art, Designing
I mean, what is love
If you don’t share it, right?
And what is life
If you don’t live it, right?

What is art
If you don’t see it, right?
What is writing
If you don’t read it, right?
I guess it’s simple,
I’m doing what I love.
Are you?

The Donkey in the Well
One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway, it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing!
He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbor’s continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the wall and trotted off!
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out alive is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping and never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up!
