An inspiration poem about the gift of giving



As I sit in a world of darkness

I look around to see no one

The cold wind has filled my soul

The rivers have poured inside my body

And the weight of the waters holds me back from seeing the light of day

What should I do?

I feel helpless,

Paralyzed in my own fears

And lost with no directions or roads to take

Suddenly, a felt a laser of energy bolt though my body

I yelled, “I’m so tired of feeling this way, I need help”

Suddenly, gold light appeared

And a man stood before me

You foolish man,

You choose this path the moment you chose to give up and wallow in your sorrows

I can not help you

You need to help yourself.

There are no rivers in your soul holding you back from light of the world

The strength lies within you

Look in my eyes and tell me what you see

The lost man looked into the angels eyes and said, I see a man who gets his strength from helping others

He does not waste time focusing on useless matters

If you dig deep enough my child

You will find precious gift inside yourself

Gifts you never knew you had

Learn from others

Then help yourself

Once you helped yourself

Go out and help the world around you

Because many people feel as you do

The angel suddenly disappeared

The lost man was no longer lost

He was determined to waste no time

And he was going to use his time to help others

Just as the angel helped him

The man got up

He realized the only thing holding him down was himself

The room was no longer dark

The light of life had entered

Dig deep in yourself and lift yourself

The answer to your problems lies within

Use your gifts

For the greatest gift is the gift of giving.

Can relate to this one. Life started dreary, an angel came, showed us the way, god gave us gifts and we must show love from inside us and give to all who come our way.

Wallowing in self pity get you nowhere. Give unto others and your sould will fill with happines. Enjoyed.

Reviewed by Richard Orey 3/6/2007
Strange, isn't it, that oftentimes in the headlines we find persons who seem to have the least amount of time and resources giving of themselves to the great betterment of others? And we read about them in awe.

Instinctively, some people know that the most valuable thing they can offer to others is themselves.

There's a wonderful lesson to be learned here, Stacey, and your poem highlights it for us all to see and consider. Thank you for reminding us of a fundamental truth: It is better to give than to receive.
