anyone have a poem or something?


Recommended Posts

I'm a poetry freak, so I may post more than one. But I think it's appropriate to have poems that glorify life. Here's a couple.

The only way to live is to accept

each minute as an unrepeatable miracle,

which is exactly what it is:

a miracle and unrepeatable.

Storm Jameson

One of the most tragic things I know about human

nature is that all of us tend to put off living.

We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden

over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses

blooming outside our windows today.

I liked this one too!


It is better to forget the things that hurt us.

And to live each day and take whatever


With the hope that by tomorrow

There will come a blam for sorrow

And help to master life's important sums!

There's a strength comes to us every time

we suffer.

And our will grows stronger every time

we fight.

Let us then be doubly grateful

For the things that disappoint us;

They only come to lead us to the light!

One more! Oh geez, my OCD is kicking in! Did I tell you I love poetry?


To love someone more dearly every


To help a wandering child to find his


To ponder o'er a noble thought and


And smile when evening falls~

This is my task.

To follow truth as blind men seek for


To do my best from dawn of day till


To keep my heart fit for His holy sight,

And answer when He calls~

This is my task.

And then my Savior by and by to meet,

When faith hath made her task on

earth complete,

And lay my homage at the Master's


Within the jasper walls~

This crowns my task.
