My First Poem

I've never really written a poem before that I know of (besides an acrostic which doesn't really count!) On the way to work this morning I saw birds flying and this came to me...I know it's nothin fancy, but I really like it and it's a great reminder to me.


Like a black ribbon along the sky
they flutter and they fly
No worry, no care or burdens to bare

Because moment by moment they live
going on what the Father gives

Not even the darkest night can stifle their song
as branch to branch they move along

Teaching us to also sing
no matter what life may bring

Because we too know
our Father loves us
and is in control.
