Koala (Listen while you read)
I thirst, I hunger.
And for what do I hunger?
A leaf here, a leaf there.
And what are leaves?
They are life my friend. I hunger for life. I hunger for everything associated with being alive. I yearn to live. I yearn to have all those things that interest me.
And what interests me?
Why everything; everything interests me. I love to enjoy all of the fruits of life, so to speak. I sit and I yearn. I yearn to absorb all about me. I yearn to do all things.
I can’t though; you see that’s just not me. I yearn to do these things, indeed I do. However, I’m not in a position to be able to do all things; not yet. But someday; someday I’ll take that bull by the horns and go out into the world and do all those things that I yearn to do. Until then, I’ll sit and wait for life to bring those things to me. That’s what I’ll do. I’ll sit and wait for life to bring me those things.
Won’t I? Or will I need to take stock of myself? Yes, do I need to take stock of myself? Perhaps that’s what I need to do. Or perhaps I need to take stock of myself and go and get those things for which I yearn.
Hey;….. perhaps that’s it. Perhaps…… Hmmmmmmm it is quite cosy here. I don’t have anything to do; right? Hmmmmmmm..
Perhaps our friend the Koala personality needs a little more ‘get up and go’ to get up and get into life. He/she certainly would like to be able to do all of the wonderfully exciting things that life has to offer. However, there appears to be a little vacillating going on which prevents the Koala personality from taking chances; taking risks. Indeed this is a little sad for the Koala personality, for with a little more thought (and strength of conviction) all of his/her yearnings could be satisfied.
