Default The Big Elephant

The Big Elephant
by Deb Abbott

It was cloudy but The Big Elephant knew
The Sun was still shining behind the cover
So she ventured forth once again to overcome
That which had been pressed upon her.

Patience, perseverance, steadfastness, stability, control
All of these attributes were called upon on this day
So she cognitively made the choice to maintain these
In her desire to accomplish her goal.

She was there to assist another who could not of their own.
Without her, they would have been thrown from these vistages.
So, she took her stand, calmly but solidly and made it known
That she would not move until her desires were met.

It was sometime before The Others came around but eventually
They did what was their duty to do and then the one could go.
The Big Elephant sighed a heavy sigh of relief and made her way
Back to her place of rest, comforting the other along the way.

But this experience had impressed upon her the vulnerability
Of those in need of assistance. No longer do caretakers take care
Of those who are presented before them unless there is someone
Else there to make certain they do.

What has become of this world? When caretakers no longer have
The will to take care of those who are in their charge?
The Big Elephant was very perplexed by this turn of events
And was determined to find another way....

Imagination - the Beginning of Creation
Life is Good
