The astonishing thing about certain people
Is that they’re not very much like all other people.
Some people are like the sparkling starry sky
Who continue to shine out and reflect in mortals’ eyes
Years long after they’ve gone down the road
Who even in the distance, make an impression bold
A star that persists to burn brightest
Even when the nights are darkest –
Some people are like stars.
Some people are like the mountainous landscapes

While peaking upwards to the sky, aspiring further to go –
Some people are like mountains.
Some people are like a luscious forest of trees
Whose roots are firmly grounded to earth, in humility
Whose hearts experience rebirth, seeking His Majesty
A tree that starts from a seed, and soon, behold
Its mysteries contained of beauty and stories of old –
Some people are like trees.
Some people are like the soothing wind
A cool gentle breeze, just as soon as you please
A wind that takes one’s breath away
Whose wisdom makes one’s thoughts joyfully stray
(And since the breeze don’t show it,
Of its awesomeness, it don’t know it) –
Some people are like the wind.
All people are like people,
But some people are beyond
Some people are like the guiding stars,
The glorious mountains,
The fruitful trees,
The merciful breeze,
And all things in this world that God makes beautiful.
Some people are all these things,
And some people are more, too
For what’s most astonishing of all,
Is that some people,
