Several weeks ago I had some very specific words come to mind. They sounded like a poem when put together. I created a post with the following caption:
"I have the beginnings of what could be a beautiful poem. SEND HELP. How do you think I could refine it? Or lengthen it? Would love any of your thoughts on how I can improve this:
Lean on me, I'll lean on you
He said be one, you'll find great strength
Hand in hand, we could pull through
Don't doubt yourself, don't play that game
Look heavenward, and praise His name."
I have to emphasizes how I'm the farthest thing from a poet. So, I was eager to see where the conversation let to in the comments.
I was touched to see the beautiful direction that many people took this poem.
Here is the final product:
Lean on me, I'll lean on you.
Hand in hand, we'll both push through.
He said be one to find great strength.
So together, we'll reach great lengths.
On our paths we all roam,
So link up arms and aim for home.
Don't doubt yourself; don't play that game,
Look heavenward, and praise His name!
I love everything about this poem. I love that it took a community to build it which is the very message the poem teaches. I love the simplicity and truth. I hope you find some strength along with me as we consider the beautiful relationships God has put in our lives to give up strength.
