Big Thing

I am a big thing
I am wholesome
Substantial and self sufficient

I am a big thing
I can love and
I am loved

I am a big thing
I believe in the good and positive things in myself
And in others

I am a big thing
My heart is pure
And I feel sure
I am a big thing

I am a big thing
Tell it to your neighbors
Spread it among your friends
I am a big thing

I am a big thing
I live to grow
To show the world
I am a big thing

I am a big thing
I may not drive a Benz
Or own a mansion with the white picket fence
I may not have a degree
From a university
I am a big thing

Bigger than the Benz
Bigger than any degree
Bigger than the university

I am a big thing
I am everything
Every thing that is divine
Is mine
Divine affluence
Divine influence
Divine intelligence
Divine prudence

I am a big thing
Look at my soul
And you will be told
I am a big thing

Open your eyes
And behold
I am a big thing

Big in truth
Big in self esteem
Big in beauty
Big in purity

Big beautiful black and bold
Tell it to the world
I am a big thing

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
