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.

The Awakening

English: Pleiades Star Cluster

English: Pleiades Star Cluster (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

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
