Have You Ever? -------------------------------------------
Have you ever taken a step back
to get a glimpse of who you are
to only realize that there is nothing?
Have you ever lived in a dream
that you could not escape out of
to only see everything that is real?
Have you ever listened to a song
to have spirits speak through it
to guide you on your next turn?
Have you ever prayed to God
to see him answer you every time
with a power that is beyond words?
Have you ever felt the peace of silence
being in the presence of the Lord
only to hear him whisper, I love you?
Have you ever?........ I have
I hope I’m not alone
This poem is a very well written poem, although it was a tad on the short side. This poem was deffinatly good, but if you added a few more lines into it, like going further into details with the different "have you ever" sections then it'd be even better. And to answer you're question, no I don't think you're alone. You might just be one of the lucky few who take time to pray or to look at life in different perspectives. keep up the good work.
hi, lynn, i really love this poem, really, in its simplicity it reveals great wisdom, I am coping and keeping it, ok, I agree, very well done. But please correct, “took” to taken and “listen” to listened. Tom
That was really good thats the kind of poem that really pulls people in and make them think. I know I'm not only to give complements but I really couldn't find anything wrong, though the poem didn't always rhyme it really fit anyway. And by the way no your not alone.
I don't believe you are alone either in what you have written, You are a very good writier and I enjoyed reading this one very much. I agree with Frank so many people across our great land have probably felt this way and some probably do feel this way. I really like this alot.
