~something Big Poem by Howard The Motivational Poet Simon

~something Big

Rating: 4.7


An ocean swims in every tear drop
A river rejoices in every drop of rain
A thunder talks in every heart beat
The wind laughs in every breath
The sun speaks in every smile
Something big in every little thing!

A forest hides in every acorn
A mountain shelters in every pebble
An eagle glides in every butterfly
A millennium inhabits every moment
A library dances in every idea
Something big in every little thing!

A great nation hibernates in every child
A great journey lives in every foot step
A million dollars sleep in every dime
An orchestra flies in every singing bird
The heart of an elephant powers every ant
Something big in every little thing!

Oh God! Give me eyes that I might see
Something big in every little thing
And please help me to understand
How the gigantic God of the galaxies
Dwells in my diminutive, fragile heart
Something big in every little thing!

I stopped believing in invisble friends who actually do not have any effect on the universe when I was about five years old. Just because your misplaced beliefs cause a release of endorphins does not mean they are true. It is just virtual heroin, sorry not my kind of poem although well constructed and thought through,
