From cattle to prized steer

herded we are in a pen
enclosed like livestock, gone is our den

try as we might go back to the life of yore
we now realize our path is here, like never before

intake, bug day, storage so small
chores, snoring, complaints, all

litle do we know this is all meant to be
for the heavens above has planned this for all to see

we may be the runts and the weak of society
but we are most blessed between you and me

our lives are being shaped all from one another
this fellowship of love we all call sister and brother

such is the mystery of why we are all here
we are no longer cattle, we’re now the prized steer
