I Am a Purple Zebra

purple zebra

I could have been a yellow elephant;

I could have been a red zombie

Eating brains from everyone I saw;

I could have been all kinds of things

If it weren’t for one problem–

I am a purple zebra.


“When you hear hoof beats, think horses, not zebras.”

Sometimes it really is a zebra.

Sometimes it’s something rare that few people have seen before.


I guess that means I’m something special even though I don’t feel that way.

Anybody want to get to know a zebra?

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
