To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow,
To run where the brave dare not go,
To right the unrightable wrong,
To be better far than you are,
To try when your arms are too weary,
To reach the unreachable star,
This is my quest
To follow that star,
No matter how hopeless,
No matter how far
To be willing to give,
when there’s no more to give.
To be willing to die so that
honour and justice may live
And I know
If I only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I’ve lain to my rest
And the world will be better for this
That one man scorned and covered with scars
Still strolls with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
Each day is a new beginning given by God
I am reminded how blessed I am as this road I tread.
A new friendship comes to mind and it is my treasure.
Watching a child at play is my greatest pleasure.
Being able to help a fallen soul will
be my greatest joy.
Watching a bird build a nest while the
world searches for rest.
I am reminded I am only a small part of his plan.
When skies are blue or gray you are always there beside me.
I am reminded of God’s love at the site
of a rainbow after the rain.
When I see the flag I’m reminded of the
freedoms I share.
I remember God’s love to me when I
suffer much pain.
As the clowns come to town I am grateful I’m able to laugh.
I’ll share your heavy load to let you
know I care.
I am reminded day by day we have much to share.
The poem above is titled “When I Am Reminded”. I got that poem from my poetry class in my last third semester. I like the poem very much. Whenever I read the poem, it always remind me that how lucky I am to be a part of God’s plan. It also tells me that God has given me so much love through my friends, family, and all things in this world.
As human, I realize that I often forget God, neglect Him, and focus on worldly matters instead. Sometimes I also feel so lonely and in pain; neglected that God always there beside me. Giving me so much happiness to share; share to other people.
Hopefully, by posting this poem in my blog I can share the same feeling to others.
