Soaring Like An Eagle

I am an eagle
My keen eyesight envision greatness above
I dread not the dark distance
I brace myself and fly higher still
For there is glory on that higher plane
I was meant to be a part of it
I am an eagle
Soaring higher makes me finer

Dear God,
If thy essence remains in me
And I'm made just like thee
Grant me lord my very wish
To soar like an eagle

    The American Indians believe that the eagle is blessed above all the other animals. He flies higher and sees better than any other bird and is believed to bring the prayers of Man to The Creator. A fine piece here my friend. There is an old saying that goes: It's hard to soar like an eagle when you're surrounded by turkeys. However, an eagle would eat the turkeys, ;p God Bless, JB

    Very nicely said my friend. Keep your eyes on Christ and you will indeed run and not be weary, walk and not faint. You will soar on wings of an eagle. God Bless, JB
