The depressed Donkey

A long-time ago, there was a wood burdened Donkey lumbering across a stream. He was sick and tired and he couldn´t stop resenting the weight of his burden.

“Hi-aaa, Hi-aaa”_ the Donkey brayed.

At sunset the Donkey lay down on the fresh grass to rest. But even there, he was moaning with brays.

“Hi-aaa, Hi-aaa”

A little Worm, being fed up with the Donkey’s moans, came crawling to him.

“Don´t resent your fate so much. I would like to walk, jump, cross the streams but nevertheless my life consists of crawling and running the risk of being trampled and mashed.

“Dear fellow, it´s hard to live with all these burdens everyday”_ claimed the Donkey.

We must learn to take our fate with happiness and optimism; if not we will be miserable all our lives”_ replied the Worm.

Why are you crushed down, O my soul? And why are you troubled in me? Put your hope in God; for I will again give him praise who is my help and my God.
