    From one day to another
    like the minutes in a hour
    It was only a moment ago

    Joy?

    With tears in my eyes
    Feeling the weight on my shoulder
    over the horizon I see the storm

    Like the seconds in a minute
    the whole climate changes
    and the storm is at my door.

    Caught in the cross winds
    Of confusion

    Got to keep on moving on

    Small pieces of stones
    cut through the fresh

    Got to keep on pushing on


    Can’t let it beat me down
    Shielding my head from the
    Debris
    Then I drop my
    hands down

    With tears in my eyes
    I face what have arise
    observing my surrounding
    I
    Becoming one with the elements
    Then
    I
    become
    the storm

    Bluewater,
    i enjoyed this very much and it reminded me of the Peace that is in the Eye of the Storm.......certain types of resistence are futile and even within the storm is a Peace for those who are blessed to reach it......

    just where your sharing took me.....
    Peace and Blessings

    Sometimes the storm is so fierce you have to become one with it to get past it, this was wonderfully written.

    This is a very nice poem Blue.

    It does take longer, to reach a goal, accept one of life's many folds, and it is much harder to keep your head up, look forward without covering and squinting your eyes. When the turbulance comes.

    Always pray for the strength to change those things you can, and to withstand those you can't. Like everyone said. Flow with the storm.

    Peace and love to you Blue. Keep the :flame: burning in your sprit, mind and heart.
