Pool of Tears

Updated on October 19, 2012

.

And I looked, and behold a pale horse:

and his name that sat on him was Death,

and Hell followed with him.

Revelation 6:8

The Long and Winding Road is full of straight aways and sharp curves,

there are pot holes and occasional smooth sailing along the way.

It is full of happiness and sadness, trial and tribulation, success and failure.

The one certainty, the only certainty about life is, it goes on, with or without.

As wisdom dictates,still it leads me back, to a place I feel safe and secure.

Of this I know: I’ve seen that road before. For it's those stormy times we discover the secrets we hide deeply within. We learn through our painful experience. A Pool of Tears.

We hope to embrace them, to own them, to become their Master.

The relevant hurricane; The Best, Worst, and same Life altering times. Pouring rain soaks the ground unearthing the weakest aspects of our life. Strong winds blow the weak away leaving only our well rooted principles, Leaving what the wind blew in, and out, but most notably, what held firm.

Even though the ballad is my favorite Beatles love tune, it embodies the passion of life. The fear and loneliness of failure, the uncertainty and insecurity of what tomorrow will bring.The promise of another rising sun, then another setting sun, The promise of another storm to roll in, then roll out. The promise opportunity brings to those fortunate enough to have at least one more chance for at least one more day.

And,in the end...

      Tusitala,

      Interesting my friend. I wrote this the day after the last one you read. Its been a while since I have written new material, which is not uncommon.

      I would love to get to the next step but I do believe that is a matter for God, Fate, Time, &/or Karma.

      Thank you for your kind words and your encouragement.

      Thanks for picking up on the combo. I thought it was to obscure. And I have found myself staring at the painting for many minutes at a time. It draws me into the moment, I can't look away as my mind races, of what they went through back then. Thank you once again Civil War Bob.

      Good post, JF! Your combo of title, Bible, and Trail of Tears painting was perfect. It made me immediately think back to that part of my research for my book, God Caused the Civil War, that pointed out that the same 3 trails the Cherokee had to tramp connected major battle sites in the Western Theater of the Civil War.

      I love your hub, even your profile is written with such passion. I've only read one of your hubs, but I will return hub.

      thanks for reading my very first hub and following me. That one took me a lot of time, but I think this is becoming a habit and I'll get faster. That's really an upside down rainbow, last year in July.

      Thank you for your most kind comments. Feel free to embrace and own the words as yours. Fore as I may have mentioned; and believe you would tend to agree... When we commit words to paper, the best we could hope is to make that magical connection and hold the attention of the reader. Your magnificent feedback suggests I accomplished just that.

      Indeed a Beatles favorite of mine as well... Yet, I must add, it is I whom is blessed you found me. Looking forward to our next meeting on the Hub.

      My passion for knowledge and writing was rewarded as I read this hub. It was your well written introduction about you, yourself that brought me here to "Pool of Tears". In your bio you wrote, "If words are the brushstrokes, then Life itself serves as the Canvas." I have to say that I wish I would have said this. Beautiful!

      "The long and winding road" video is a favorite of mine. You have managed to lift the lyrics to a whole new level.

      I am truly blessed to have found you here on Hubpages. I thank you for sharing your gift of unique expression through words. I have voted UP+
