Koala (Listen while you read)
I thirst, 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 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.)
