on a cloudy day
when life seems dry
look out the window and see no birds fly
there in the distance is a house with golden windows
why is that not me
for the beauty of the sunshine
so precious, so fine
will one day come upon my windows
and make my life divine
So worry not about the others
think of the blessings within
for in the house with golden windows
those inside do whine
the day has past
now look across the valley
at that house with golden windows
is the one with me inside
Poem written by Elder Madsen, 9:44am, Grandfalls, Newfoundland
I have no reason why but I felt inspired to just write a poem ahahaha
I guess that I was missing the times at PCS doing creative writing. I think there’s a message in the poem somewhere- I think it means that we may look at others and think that they have what we want, but as life goes on we often times don’t realize that we have what other people want.
So as a final conclusion: I need to be grateful and remember not to compare myself to others.
