Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

But After…

image

As the storms rage,
Dark clouds block the sun.
Lightning and thunder
spill their fury
With beastly intensity.
Cyclones circulate,
Spreading debris
With forceful ease.
Torrential downpours
Threaten solidarity.

I cannot hear
I cannot see clearly
I have to hide
I grow frightened and weary

The storm passes.
Sun’s healing light
Befalls the fallen.
The earth swallows
Torrent remains.
A peaceful calm surrounds.
Threatening gales fade
Into gentle breezes.
Debris settles,
And recovery begins.

I can hear
I can see clearly
I needn’t hide
The world isn’t quite so scary

Without A Home…

Image

To those without a home tonight,
The injurious frozen air shattering your humanity.
Please accept the warmth from my heart.
If only you could thrive on sentimentality…

Your cries go not unheard.
Your struggles are not unseen.
I admire your fortitude to persevere,
And face each new day’s unforeseen.

I wish you hope, in the midst of your storm,
Resources to sustain you.
I wish you strengthened faith in God,
And a happy ending of dreams come true.
