Cagsil, a veteran hubber whom I look upon as a mentor inspired to write this poem. To you Cagsil.

This is the comment I made on Cagsil's hub

Another masterpiece by one of those hubbers I personally look upon as a mentor. Please take this as my personal opinion Cagsil. Hope I didn't offend you here. I have to be honest that your generosity in reaching out to help the newbies goes along way. This hub is just one of those generous gesture of Cagsil in helping newbies find their place in Hubpages. I came here as a cheek without wings but people like you gave me wings to fly and I am sure I will gradually learn to fly. Just as I was writing this comment, my creative juice started flowing....


So here's a little poem dedicated to those veteran hubbers who have welcomed me to hub pages.

Here's my short poem to you all. Hope you like it.

The cool pacific breeze blew me across the great pacific ocean to a strange land

As I stand here and look across the horizon

I can see men and women who speak in millions tongues

But in one voice

They write in brilliant ways

And survive in millions ways

Wisdom sails them far and wide

Courage flies them high up the skies

They wear generosity as their belt

And intelligence as their sword

They live in a world of fantasy

Yet see the world in its purest state


They fear no man but their own soul

The very soul that unites their mind and hand

The soul that brings forth new ideas every day

They are strong yet gentle

Wings that flies against the raging storm

To reach for a featherless cheek like me

That one day I will fly like an eagle an live like one.
