Eagle's Wings




I looked o'er the horizon...

and as rolling waves went crashing up
against the shoreline rocks all the while
frantic questions rise and flow
just like the tide - I don't know
where the endless worries end
and where begins the way I truly am...


I'm as worn as the sand...


Each day the ocean weighs
another burden that will move me -
I need to reach another place
away from all the sorrow

and away from all the pain.

So let it be today I cast no furtive glances.

I'll take my chances, holding faith,
for God will watch me well -
and as those turbid waters rage and swell
I will stand strong, and I will stand
yes I will stand
by God's hidden hand

I'll hold my own against the tide
and be lifted up by wings of eagles.


In naught but Christ, I find my safety

from the weight that seeks to bear me under.




Author's Notes/Comments: 

For me, and anyone else there with bleeding hearts, broken minds, and daily worries. Jesus said not to worry about each day (let each day worry about itself) for God watches even the lowly little sparrow. Seek God's kingdom and righteousness, and you will be provided for. (Matthew 6:25-34)  Incidentally, I came across this verse just after having written this poem:


but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

A confession.

I don't know what it is about this poem.
I really like it though.
I keep coming back to it for some reason..

I don't know..

What I do know is because of this beautiful writing you inspired within me patter, Pitter. Just wanted to share that with you. I was bothered; I think; all day because of it. That's not like me. To not let the author or writer know..

Sorry for that.
In any case this was a very touching read to me.
So thank you.

I really appreciate this. The poem is what I've been through lately, and its a bit raw. It means a lot that you see it as beautiful. The spoken word group Listener inspired my form. Anyway, I'd love to hear what thoughts this set you off to or whatever :P Anyway, I'll post on pitter patter now!

The lowly little sparrow.
That is what it was.
You captured my very essence.
My significance soared with you.
I felt as though I've given up hope,
but I know ..
No ..
Although my wings clipped.
I still stand.
Head held high.
Arms reach towards the heavens,
and I know ..
Yes ..
His eyes are upon me.
I feel at peace.

That was the spark I breached.
My freedom I felt was reduced.
Slightly temperate.
These four walls are always bearing down on me.
I get intimidated.
I feel strong, but inside I'm weak.
The mood was sad for me, but the aura beautiful you see?
As I opened my heart ..
I felt you change me.
Shape me.
Turn me.
Add an adjustment.
A new addition.
A correction.
I think to where I didn't know me.

I've always been alone whether I chose that path, or not.
I just don't know.
Those three words always come up.
I don't know.
My thoughts for you to bear.
I can't elaborate perfectly.
I'm struggling here.
Sorry ..
