THE ‘HUMPTY DUMPTY' TALE
Of all the nursery rhymes I came across, for some reason, this one stuck to me:
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
You’ve probably seen a movie about it too.
The funny thing is that I had never thought of Humpty Dumpty as anything more than a humourous verse. Not until now.
It’s interesting that Humpty Dumpty is an egg. It’s even more interesting that that egg is a person. Maybe a fragile person?
Sometimes life takes us through a lot of ups and downs; highs and lows. When we fall from that tall wall of apparent success and we hit rock-bottom, the experience is shattering. So shattering that we erroneously think that it is impossible to be whole again.
I don’t really know which king was referred to in this rhyme but I am certain that the King of kings has no problem with fixing broken pieces.
View life as one giant roller coaster ride. Stay excited even as you ride down the slope because you know you’ll be climbing soon enough.
Here’s my own version of Humpty Dumpty:
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
But not too long, also a great rise
He kept rising and rising beyond the skies
