Metaphors Have Stained Glass Windows
A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead and dreams of a faraway place. A traveler on the plane sees the farmhouse below and dreams of home. ~Robert Brault
Some dreams are like a glassed in museum artifacts,
we can see it and ponder it's beauty, but we can never hold it in our hands.
A Nearby Explosion:
Memories are like a nearby explosion,
the moment it happens is brief, but the ringing in our ears can last a lifetime.
An Old Shirt:
Bitterness is like an old shirt,
the more you wear it the more comfortable it gets, and the stains become permanent.
A Passing Train:
Harsh words are like a passing train,
they pass us by harmlessly many times but when they hit us they are devastating.
A Burning Forest;
The gangs of the ghetto are like a burning forest,
they stand together in danger unable to run and that is where they shall fall.
A Repaired Leaky Roof:
Courage is like a repaired leaky roof,
you never know if it will hold strong until it rains.
That Fine Crystal Vase:
Sometimes love is like that fine crystal vase you always longed for,
when you finally have it you place it on a high shelf to protect it from breaking and its true beauty is never revealed.
Power is like a handgun,
When it is used wisely it serves its purpose of protection, but when it is used carelessly it is a danger to us all.
Prejudice is like condensation on a window pane,
the difference in temperature makes it impossible for one side to see through to the other.
Chances are like wild flowers,
they come and go with the seasons yet only we can decide to stop and pick them up.
Mistakes are like deep splinters,
they enter our lives easily, but they are very hard to work out.
A Pin Drop:
Hope is like a pin drop,
it can fall in a room and never be noticed, yet it is still there just the same.
Stained Glass Windows:
Feelings are like stained glass windows,
everyone that looks through them views things a little differently, but when it is shattered we all see it is a crying shame.
