These Tired Eyes Can Still See

Updated on May 21, 2014

One Big Cheer For You

To often we forget where we came from

It wasn't long ago I was a drip of water from the drain

Then something miraculous happened

The drip was not a small splash of water

It was a magnificent beginning

From there I began to grow

I grew in body as well as in mind

Before I looked at the world from an outside view

Now I can see the world from deep down within

Where all people, animals and things are connected

In a great variety of ways I never did see

Think of a day when it rains

You look up in the sky

In seconds water comes pounding down

You can move from side to side

The water still finds you

You can not escape

Then you realize why try

Beautiful water

Refreshing water

Without it we would all perish

Instead of running away from this moment and hiding

We should stop and embrace all our new feelings we have hidden all this time

For some people they never get to enjoy or experience such joy

They play follow the leader and run for cover

Soon they miss out on an opportunity of a lifetime

So don't be like the guy next door or even another rain drop next to you

Be yourself and let the world know

if it wasn't for you we wouldn't have rain

So next time you hear that drip

Think twice

Be nice

Look down and say hello

Life can get pretty lonely you know

It's a slippery job but someone has to do it

Never a dull moment I will tell you

Changes in life start small

I don't know how much smaller I can get

I do know how large some of my friends have become

Mr. Atlantic Ocean and his sister the Pacific Ocean

They never cease to amaze me

Once they were so small

Who would ever guessed they would became so well known

Famous all over the world

Written about in every map

Models of them that spin

Now I am so excited

I can't wait to see what I can become

In time

It might take years

I might one day be famous too

Just as famous as my old school teacher

Ms. Tears

      HappyMikeWriter I am thrilled with every comment you leave. For years my words were just letters and vowels with no significance or meaning accept to me.I am happy you enjoy my work. Remember to stay true to yourself. You are so special and unique. Thank yourself for all your hard work and good that have done. You constantly affect so many people every day in numerous ways. When your kind to yourself you can love everyone else without thinking.I believe that is what life is all about. Even though millions of people love to prove me wrong. I am a lot like you I keep trying until I get results. My name is also Michael. So I like to think all Michael's in the world are connected in some way. Through our thoughts or actions.I live for good thoughts and dreams. Unlike the world that is driven by sadness and pain.All it takes is change. That changes your life and the lives of everyone you know. Have a wonderful night. Thank you for your comment and support.
