He noticed the girl, sitting in a field by herself,
Blowing a blade of grass between her two thumbs,
While staring at the group of them, all heading in one direction.
He came and sat down beside her.
“What are you doing Child?” He said,
“Just blowing this piece of grass to see if it makes a sound.” She said.
“Why do you do this?” He asked,
“Because I feel like the odd person out.” She said.
“Why would you feel this way?” He asked,
Placing her hands down, looking back at the group, she replied “I feel like no one gets me.”
He smiled a bright smile. She looked at Him inquisitively.
“Why are you smiling?” She asked.
“You and that group there my Child are like snowflakes, each one uniquely different. Sometimes, a person decides to follow the wind in a particular direction because they look up instead of in.” He said.
She looked at him with furrowed brows, He smiled understanding and continued.
“Not everyone has the courage to look within for their direction, often they are too busy looking at what others are doing.” He said.
“But I never look up, I usually look down.” She said.
“Try looking within Child,” He said, “it only takes one person to lead others to follow their own heart’s compass.”
She stood up, watching the group walk in the same direction, all together.
She closed her eyes, and listened intently to her heart.
When her eyes opened; she knew exactly what to do.
She walked confidently, away from the crowd.
Towards a beautiful rainbow, which suddenly appeared out of nowhere,
In the bright sky.
