One Thousand

A Poem By Wings of Eternity // 3/23/2011

Note: This poem was inspired by HomeschoolGirl's poem Green Eyes. Her poem encouraged me to try something new and different in my poetry and write something that isn't as black and white as some of my other poems. Thanks HomeschoolGirl for the inspiration! Go check out Green Eyes when you can because it is awesome!

 

One thousand eyes see me,

One thousand lips speak my name,

One thousand ears hear me,

One thousands lies feed my shame.

 

One thousand hands touch me,

One thousand arms surround,

One thousand hugs embrace me,

One thousand feelings, I am found.

 

One thousand smiles light my eyes,

One thousand laughs make me new,

One thousand praises I will rise,

On thousand dances I will do.

 

One thousand lives I will change,

One thousand people I will find,

One thousand places I will range,

One thousand chances to be kind.

 

One thousand ways to spend my days,

One thousand moments left to love,

One thousand words to sing Your praise,

One thousand blessings from above.

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

Thanks!

I'm glad that you liked it!  I was hoping you would! I was quite suprised to find that so many stories/poems are inspiring me to write certain pieces myself. I just wish I knew about AP back when I was still being homeschooled. I can't believe I missed out on this gem for all of these years!

You keep up the great work too! So far, I've loved it all!

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬
