Beyond the Storm
Beyond The Storm
By Tony DeLorger © 2011
It is not the need of human will,
that draws on plight and anguish.
It is a universe of balance,
for us to learn and accept.
For with the resistance of change,
we would remain still, unevolved, chained
to a repetitive life of complacency.
For all the pain and anguish that life can deal,
it is not guilt or wrongdoing that we should feel.
It is the opportunity to live with understanding,
without the rejection of ill-experience.
Pain is then the teacher of life,
The panacea for knowing oneself,
who we are, from what we do.
We can grieve, get angry, fall helplessly to pain,
but it exists for our own delivery, conquest.
The irony is that when we understand pain and strife,
we will experience pain less, proving the process.
Pain then becomes something else, an opportunity,
to grasp the very core of life and shake it,
until it yields the beauty beyond the storm.
