The Journey


You didn't know I knew,
It was the minute you gave up,
The second you refused to try,
The moment you ceased to believe,
Yet in that moment I presented you clarity, renewed hope, and strength,
Carried you through the obstacle,
Let you regain your courage,
Enabled you to believe,
Showered you with peace and love,
Smothered you with compassion,
It was in that moment I renewed you,
Refined you,
Empowered you,
Then you flew like a butterfly,
Carefree,
Beautiful,
A reflection of the most high.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
