You Are A Mountain


You know how they say
That people are trees
That the moment
They’re sad gone goes their leaves

Have you ever heard?
That the brave are like mountains
That courage are their hills
And their strength flows like fountains

Have you ever seen them talk of how
The calm are like the sky
That they move with the wind
No matter what goes awry?

Do you know how they say
That faith is like the sea that brings
The more thunder that hits them
The more faith that it springs

Do you see that you are
Like a tree
Majestic and strong
To what ever degree

Do you know that you’re a mountain?
Full of strength despite occurrences
Despite events that may have hurt
You’re a mountain need no assurances

I Hope you keep telling your story
And keeping your courage alive
For maybe not all stories are appreciated
But they will listen when you arrive
And they will see that no matter what
You have and will survive

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
