    To make the world stop turning.
    oh how i wish to make tha world stop turning
    and once i thought i could, if only a dream wrapped
    in a lie, presented as a gift, that i thought was mines
    to have the power in the palm of my hands
    carrying my elegance as swift as air,
    and anger ramped like tornadoes.
    whispering mellow tunes
    of sad songs among the
    winds in the willows
    and at one time i thought
    i could make the world stand still
    that i was the reason or atleast part of the reason
    the wolfs howl at the moon
    or the night skys cry to the earth sometimes
    or sometimes i would imagine that i could feel
    tha reason why the earth shaked,
    and the sun danced upon the surface
    of the water. ever so gently
    so subtle,
    just enough to heat the edges of the waters
    but leave the core of the lake soo cool
    and i thought.
    that being, me and being a child of God's
    that was so unique
    that i could make the world stand still, and my presence be missed eternally
    and that when the day came, that if a day was to arrive that
    it would be more than i with tears in my eyes
    that the world would sit in it's spot
    holding its breath of time
    but the day come and went, and so did i
    and as if earth never gave it a second thought
    and time didn't give regret a sigh
    but simply erase my line from the story of time
    than i knew, my presence was not needed,
    maybe desired but not needed, and everything remained the same
    and then i knew life moved with the steady handed glide of time
    and that i
    was no different then the rest

    What I got from this was that time moves on, with or without us. And we can make a difference, but not by simply standing still. This piece sort of makes me want to get moving, thanks for this poet.

    We surely are children of God
    Every love and support does count
    Maybe in the visual but spiritually
    We all make a change
    Beautiful piece sista
