DAY TWO: WRITING CHALLENGE


Day 2: A poem about your favourite, famous positive role model.

It seems silly that i’ll write about someone I don’t know personally,
But you, you’re a busy body with a magnetic personality.

You inspire me to desire more,
To reach higher and fuel my inner fire.

Famous to the globe but you model a much bigger role in my world,
The words you speak, I quote.
The values you preach, I take note.
And for that you deserve ‘Thank you’ notes.

You deserve true love and a spotlight,
You deserve loyal fans and all the shine,
You deserve more poems posted about you online,
You deserve prime-time attention to say what’s on your mind.

Thank you for being there in my ears when i needed a friend,
Thank you for motivating music when i felt i was at my wits’ end,
Thank you for the advice you gave me in the form of melodic poems,
Thank you for being you, sharing yourself with the world and letting us into your realm.

10 Awesome Quotes from C.S. Lewis

“Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.”

“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.”

“You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.”

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”

“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”

“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.”

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”

“God can’t give us peace and happiness apart from Himself because there is no such thing.”

“Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”

“I didn’t go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.”
