A blog for me is more than just a means to make money, it is also a way of expressing myself. One of the ways that I may choose to do this is through poetry. Don’t get me wrong as I am not a poet in any manner of shape and form, but I do like to dabble in it every now and again.
I don’t write many poems and I reckon the reason for that is because I need to be inspired and that doesn’t happen all that often. When it does happen though the words seem to flow fairly easily and I am usually fairly pleased with the results. This is one of those times.
I call this one.
As I lie on the ground Gazing at the myriad of stars Thinking how insignificant I am What am I, but a mote in the universe?
I leave no mark on this world Like the ripples of a pebble Falling in a calm lake I am born, and then I die Leaving not a trace
From dust to dust The finality of life Would be eternal Were it not for the memories Memories of loved ones left behind
Awakening, as realization dawns Mine is not what I do for myself But what I can do for others The Lord is my Shepard I shall not want His Word more than food Filling the void within me
As I lie on the ground Gazing at the myriad of stars I wonder at the Glory of God Who counts me among His children My life, a void fulfilled When I am a beacon That shows others the way
