Beyond the Books and Words

by therinamartins

If I could see beyond the books,

Beyond the words, Beyond the thoughts, Would I still be inspiring? Would I still feel the need to inspire? If I could speak beyond my pen, How far would it travel? How far would it roam?

Would I show that the sun still shines?

Or that the dilly daffodils still dance? Could I save a life, if I could? And would they listen? Would they hear? The broken, The weary, The heavy-hearted? Would they listen to me?

Would I bring a smile to their face?

Or keep them from escaping the harsh way? From ending their lives so early? Could I change someone's life through mine?

No matter how high, how hard, how long,

The trail may seem, We are all trailblazers, With a gift unknown and still mysterious. We were meant to inspire, To uplift, To comfort those who need us.

Do not hide just behind books and words,

Aloof. Be brave, Be strong hearted. Fear not what lies ahead. For no one is alone.

And if we may find our sides bare,

Know that God holds you. He'll never let you down. He'll be there as long as you allow him to be. But he'll be that hand that holds you up. He'll be there for you.

Please vote! I'll really appreciate it!

This was the sermon in the library. Your beliefs do so much to buoy you up in life. There is no doubt in my mind that you are divinely guided.

@therinamartins Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and brave. Don't be afraid of them and don't be discouraged, because the LORD your God will go with you. He will not leave you nor forget you.

@therinamartins excellent! excellent! work. What would happen if we all just give up? If our pens refused to write? If our voices had no sound? If we never become trailblazers? What would happen if we had the power so that everytime we spoke people listened? What would happen if we actually were to become, beyond the books and words?
