I'm used to poems that are free of rhymes and counts. I am not even sure if they possess any rhythm. But as I read other artist's work, I realize the wonders of poetry. How truly amazing each people can be.
This morning, I heard a message that completely enlightened me. He spoke simple words. "The Lord sends His greatest favor to the least familiar". I considered it earnestly.
He speak about not dwelling too much on what you are used to, that you create it yourself when its not even there!
Just because it feels weird and novel, we should brush it aside. Don't be too used to rejection that you cannot accept the compassion a person is willing to give you. Don't be too used to misery that you can't accept anything that feels the opposite of it.
He speak of not turning a blind eye on the great mountain range in your backyard, because we felt it was too familiar to pay closer attention to.
He speak of shifting our emotional focus, not on fear, or frustration, but on His favor.
For if we focus too much on what we expect this day to turn out, it will kill any remnant of His favor already working in front of us.
Don't let yourself be too familiar, that gradually you blind yourself.
There isn't any other way of celebrating my 1111th post other than writing about my journey here. @mirakee You have changed my life in ways that I can't use the entirety of my vocabulary to describe. @writersnetwork Every like and repost has always meant A LOT to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the constant encouragement. And to all of my FRIENDS who've ever read me, THANK YOU SO MUCH. All those capitalised words in the #microblog are the titles of my poems or references to my poems. #wod
I learned to fly because of you, So if you left, I could go too.. But as we dream and as we go, We have to learn to let things go.. But I won't let our wonders fade, Our memories will abide even after decades. I always want to talk about you, it seems, But how I feel and what I say, there's always a rift between. Talk to the stars if you feel the same, Because one day I'm going to befriend one of them.
