Poem."Learning to fly Higher" Eric Clapton sings.

Updated on November 21, 2011

Learn to fly Higher

You can rise

On any given day

Like the great

Bob Marley say

With the rising


Or it simply

could be


your day

Has ofically


Some will

show a smile

While others

A residual rage

But along the


They can stop

At Hub Pages

Have a read

Of someone’s


Hearing what

they have to say

this day.

There are times

you will leave

Feeling Blessed

There are times

After you recite

someone’s poem

For that entire


You can't help

yourself feeling


But it should

not be this way

Depressed or


But you can rise

They are all

simple ways

A character

Can go

But each day

as you rise

Your life should

be no surprise

Because you are

The are driver

Of your life’s

train everyday

Whether on

A day of shine

Or one in which

there is plenty

of rain.

You are still the

one who has


To lose or to gain

You must


learn to adjust

your character

To refrain

From that

which is a


That’s not the


For which humans

Give Thanks

each day as they


We are the sheep

The Most High God

Is our Shepard.

Even when we sleep

We are protected

Solid as a rock

From all the

Predators in hiding


To destroy

Our flock!

We must learn

to fly higher!

      I love this poem. Very enlightening. We do need to all unite together. That is one of my favorite Eric Clapton songs next to "You look Wonderful Tonight". Love this.

      I am always saying that inspiration for mankind should always come from the person inside him which after the Most High God and his Parents he gets to choose .

      So I am thankful.
