    • POEM: Song Of The Wave Xvii by Khalil Gibran (11/29/2009 7:40:00 AM)

      This poem has been a part of my life since I was a child. My Grandpa Lee read it to me when I was twelve years old. I was recovering from facial reconstructive surgery after a major accident. I felt hideous on the outside, and I was begining to feel there was no beauty or hope in the world. He read this poem to me and it revealed something interesting. I had always considered the ocean to be cruel and ugly, but seeing from Girban's poetic perspective, I realized that what one finds ugly can be beautiful when seen in a different light. I learned to accept my new face, and understood that my inner beauty could shine on the outside, as well. As an adult, I live on a yacht for most of the year, traveling the west coast. I keep a copy of this poem at the helm, right next to my GPS. This poem is my secondary compass, leading my heart in the right direction when my perspective and view needs to be broadened.
