Drop in the Ocean

A lovely poem from a respected Poet and writer, Philip Craddock. I love his use of words and there are so much more where this came from. Take your time and check out his blog https://philipcraddockwriter.wordpress.com. Hope you get to enjoy his articles as much as I do. My best regards to you.

Over 7 billion people but only one me.
Each life but a drop into an endless sea.
How insignificant will my life be?

Can a drop change course of the ocean?
Suggestion seems such a strange notion!
Yet your drop isnโ€™t water โ€“ it is magic potion.

A drop can cause nations to rise and fall.
Can draw lines on a map and claim it all.
Can summon soldiers whoโ€™ll heed its call.

A drop discovered a new species under waves,
others sent last of the dodos to their graves.
Another brought liberation, freeing slaves.

Your drop holds within it unlimited power,
grows larger and larger hour after hour,
add a dash of dreams and watch them flower.

As I prepare to change course of the ocean next to you,
just think on how much magic your one drop can still do.

  1. Thanks again for the reblog Jacqueline. ๐Ÿ™‚ “Liking” for the act of reblogging and your kind words rather than “Liking” my own poem…still unsure what the etiquette is regarding “Liking” your own pieces but guessing it’s frowned on. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Good luck with your own site. If there’s anything I can do to help you with it, just ask.
