The soul is fragile;
You taught me that.
With a demanding hand
You shaped my life,
You led my way,
Inspired my dreams,
Gave me hope,
And spread my wings.
You slowly pushed me,
A steep cliff it was.
I fell for long.
God gave me will
To find your embrace
Amongst the clear sky.
You had faith in me,
You knew I would fly!
You gave me an opportunity
To be able to feel
What it is
To feel alive again.


-Erick Flores



How many of us have had that special someone that has given us that extra push we need? How many of us feel like we haven't appreciated their positive intentions to help us in life? Life is short, and we need to learn to live it with faith and hope. More than anything, we must learn to admit to our mistakes. Thank the special people in your life! Remember, they have taken the time to help, because they care! Feel free to share your experiences!

  13. Erick, I am really enjoying getting to know your poetry. Yes, we do need to thank the special people in our lives who have given us'pushes' in the right direction. We also need to say the words NOW because we never know how long these people will be with us and don't want to leave our words unsaid!
