Favorite Quote:
"and then the disciples returned, saying 'impossible! The Lord, our God has risen!"

Waiting for my stop
trying to make small talk just to fit in
Looking all around at the scenery
I'm gasping at the beauty of the atmosphere,

Wondering, "What if I hadn't made it last night?"
Weeping small tears only I can see
Regretting the choices I'd made

As a bird's feather rested on my lap.

The touch of the feather
Kissed my heart
Made me feel loved
Even by the simplest thing.

I know I won't fall forever
Because this feather was stopped by the comfort of my legs
She stopped before landing in the rocks below my feet
And I will remain to follow my feather.
