    Against the Wind


    She was born to run against the wind;
    knowing naught of walking lightly
    in silken nightgown on a morning breeze.

    Mother said: girl, you make it happen
    no one else does it for you...
    and she became a believer.

    No stepping back from life's thrust,
    no time to create a peaceful, tranquil space
    where uplifting thoughts could flow
    to people her nights and fill her days.

    A child was born to her; a man was lost
    and in her joy, and in her pain,
    she found the peace she’d never known
    hidden within her own understanding.

    She became a flowing river
    winding her way through life,
    allowing the course of events
    to mold her, never enslave her.

    She found herself moving forward
    in laughing twists and crying turns,
    adding new dreams to old, and in these,
    finding hidden paths to unknown places.

    Finally she saw the child grow strong;
    free in the world she had nurtured.

    Redemption songs I hear....your words from afar......brought to me by the same breeze you fought and conquered.
