Jeeba the Amoeba is an inspirational book in poetic form. It is a story about appreciation.
All the way down at the ocean’s floor, lives an Amoeba; a creature 100 times smaller than a single grain of sand.
What can we learn from an Amoeba?
Perhaps the smallest Amoeba can teach a child the single biggest, and most valuable of all life’s lessons, especially when our world needs it most; how to love, respect, appreciate and see God in each other.
When pigtails comb out into straight
and the stuffed bear’s stored away
When the marbles and the coloring books
have finally seen their day
When the wheels of rusty roller skates
can no longer turn
and the embers of the early days
have long ceased to burn
When the weary plastic soldiers have
returned home from their wars
and the big three-story doll house
has finally closed its doors
These simple pages keep on giving
’til your final day
Oh, you’ll put them down
for a spell and
you might walk away
And although perhaps you won’t return
to this very book per se
there are Jeebas in many forms
you’ll find along the way
If the message here is less than clear
Can’t find its way to your head
And you can no longer lift this book
You probably are dead
