"All the world is made of faith, trust, and pixie dust." --J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


I was never good at much
Not a single talent rest in me
They escape my desperate clutch
Though truthful this may be,
I will not lie in a pathetic heap,
And watch the days pass by
To close my eyes for an endless sleep
I will look up to the vast, blue sky
And praise God for each day
For it all was given to me
To live in without dismay
Without fail you will see,
My life is mine to live
So I will give all I can give

Even though no life is perfect, we can still find joy in the little things. Each day is filled with many blessings, if only we can open our eyes and see them.

Wonderful poem. I love it! I really felt a connection to this and I think it reminds people what life is really about. Sometimes we get caught up in other things when we should be living our life to the fullest. Lovely. Keep writing.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

I love it! Your poem created a stirring in my heart! So beautiful your poem is, just like you are! ^_^ so wonderful! Thank you, for sharing this! I hope people see that they can give too, instead of take. And I hope they see that, they have SO MUCH around them. I've just started seeing that I have so much recently, so your poem had a connection somehow.
