    Snowstorm
    The very first day of spring
    And I trudged on thru it
    like it didn't mean a thing

    Matter of fact,
    I expected more snow
    Life doesn't always follow
    a set pattern you know

    And even when things seem off kilter,
    be it lesser or greater than
    All things considered
    It's all part of God's plan

    For when we don't understand
    There is always a reason
    Indian summer lasts thru November
    And frigid winters are out of season

    As I am, not complicated, just complex
    a Rubik's cube, a rarity
    Just as we all are in some way, just as
    the higher power designed us to be

    As I am, even though it can be difficult
    As rocks pierce and impale my feet
    Just another road I'm meant to travel
    Before my journey is complete

    Even in my angst, I must remember
    that I hold a treasure chest of gold
    Creativity, foresight, sensitivity,
    love...all blossom as the years unfold

    And speaking of years, what the river reflects
    is both internally and externally divine
    Why desire to revert back to un-stomped grapes
    when the wine is aging just fine?

    As I am
    Who I am
    Where I am
    Why I am
    How I am
    Is somehow... what's meant to be
    As I prepare to enter this next dimension
    waiting for me
    As I am...

    We have to remember the treasure we hold within ourselves Sister 4EverLuv. Thank you so much.
    Easier to be settled in where you are, before you can be secure in moving further. Thank you Brother Rich.
    Balance is important in stability, and it does take more than a notion to keep it all level. Thank you Sister Uplift.

    Easier to move on in life, when we don't beat ourselves up for where we currently are. Thank you Brother Hodee.
