Deep and meaningful!!

Ok, this post could get pretty deep and meaningful but I thought it'd be interesting to ask.
I thought I'd ask everyone if they knew of poems or songs that really struck a cord in you. . .and to (if you can) expain why?

Ok this first one 'If everyone cared'. I think this song makes such an impression becasue of the video clip and the lyrics put together create such a strong message. If everyone cared maybe we would see the day when nobody dies . . . .
And as the last few seconds of the video says . . "Never doubt that a small group of commited people can change the world . . . . Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead"

If everyone cared

This second one is 'Don't give up'. The title says it all for this song too! Listen to the lyrics carefully for both of these songs . . .

Don't give up

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

I do too! I love songs that really mean something. Songs that have a real message in them!

One of my current favorites. I have the CD and play it over and over. We should all live like there is no tomorrow.

This song has meaning for me not sure about anyone else. Its one of my all time favorites. Not a great video but its an original cut of the song.

I think this song "I can only imagine" by mercyme, really touched me.. i just really touches me spiritually.. and how all of us can really only imagine what heaven will be like..

I dont really listen to christian music, even tho i am a christian.. its just, this song really said somethin..

I love my horse. She is the wind beneath my wings.

I've got another few but this one is a poem. . .I like this peom because about a year ago i lost someone very important to me . . . a friend, a mentor and someone that I miss very much. This peom sums it all up . . .

I thought of you

I thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
And the day before that too

I think of you in silence
I often say your name
But all I have is memories
And your picture in a frame

Your memory is my keepsake
With which Iíll never part
God has you in his keeping
I have you in my heart

I shed tears for what might have been
A million times Iíve cried
If love alone couldíve saved you
You never would have died

In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place
No-one could ever fill

It broke my heart to lose you
But you didnít go alone
For part of me went with you
The night god took you homeÖ

This is another song that i like for the message it carries. . . It's by a well known aussie counrty singer that donated the proceeds to this song to all the farming families that are doing it tough because of the daught. I think it amazing that they don't just give up like so many other people would have by now.

I think its matchbox 20.... the lyrics are " i'm sorry bout the attitude I need to give when I'm with you but noone else would take this $*it from me" It is SO true...It just really fits my life sometimes. 8)

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

1 Chronicles 28:20

Aww I like meaningful songs.
"I'm With You"- Avril Lavigne is a good song...really touches me!

Ride more, worry less.
