Treasure Island

A Different View


I ventured out at midnight
and gazed up at the sky.
I saw way beyond the stars
the celestial forms on high.

The peace it brought
was in the knowing
that each tiny spec
is slowly growing

into something larger every day
and knew that I was too.
Something too grand for this tiny earth
and so it changed my view.

I now know that the midnight sky
gave me the chance to see
that I too, will grow in size
and live for eternity.

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
