“Take only pictures, Leave only Footprints”I hope that after nilveag
here we will not be forgotin a lasting yet intangible way I hope we will
have left our mark.What I hope we will be remembered for are deeds that
were goodnot for any havoc we may have wrought.This place came from those
that went beforeand we will leave it to ones not here yet,let’s hope that
we’ve tread carefully enoughand treated it with respect.There are some
things that once they’re gone will never be againI hope after nilveag
here we do so with no regrets.This place we dwell, that is a gift, is truly
one of a kindand we need to strive to leave no irreversible damage
behind.After nilveag here it is hoped we’re all much better than when we
cameand as for this place I pray to God that about it we can say the same.

Comment on the Poem: The Blades of Grass

The poem of the poet is indeed on a point worth lending attention to. Man
should not be proud of his good deeds that he commits in the world. Good
deeds may not save from the anger of God, it will be indeed the boundless
mercy of God that we should rely on. The blade of grass, not knowing of his
virtuous deeds, and only waits for the mercy of God, is rewarded but the
ones who brag about their righteousness are praised/rewarded at all. Man
indeed should go humbly towards God with hope of receiving from His mercy,
and should not haughtily visit Him for a getting a reward of their virtuous
deeds, done in the world for their self-satisfaction rather than to please

Though he may have misnamed the poem and misplaced its location, Stephen
struck a blow for mercey in this poem---you know "unmerited
favor"---salvation by works is a slippery slope---God is the judge of worth
not humankind.

I think that this poem is in reference to the teachings of Christ. In
Matthew, Jesus teaches that when we pray, it shouldn't be in the streets to
show off and when we fast, it shouldn't be to show others how righteous we
are. All the bragging blades of grass were doing what God told us not to.
The humble blade of grass probably did countless good deeds, but he just
couldn't remember them because he did them with pure intent: to love God
and fellow men and not to exalt himself.
