Valentines #1

A Poem By Caleb // 2/15/2019

The Original
I’d like to be unique in all I do,
To see the beauty hid from other’s view,
To speak the thing that’s seldom said but true.
But when I come to weigh what is your virtue’s due,
I am compelled to join all men in praising you.

~

The Cynic
Those words of love, the promise of your lips,
Were thin and breakable as potato chips;
No longer than a bag our love did last —
One of those bags mostly filled with air
That go so fast.

~
The Happily Puzzled Statistician
There are so many stars in the sky,
If up to a star I could fly,
Statistically do you think that I
Would happen to light upon the most habitable one?
So how on earth could it be
That she, of all people, loves me!
In mathematical probability
Should I of all men be the most happiest one?

Wow, the imagery of a sad,

Wow, the imagery of a sad, air-filled potato chip bag was something I didn't see coming/would never think of! I really liked the rhyming scheme and tempo of all of them, but the Cynic was my favorite.

"To live is to love with the passion of a thousand stars. To love is to live despite the pain of a thousand scars. Anything in between is a passing shadow." ~Michael Joseph Murano

Wonderful! You had me

Wonderful! You had me laughing halfway through :)

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper
