Do Not Lose Hope

Updated on December 16, 2017
it takes the dark clouds of rain fro a rainbow to form.. there got to be an amount of pain for happiness to be appreciated to the maximum
it takes the dark clouds of rain fro a rainbow to form.. there got to be an amount of pain for happiness to be appreciated to the maximum

Let Not The Boat Capsize

Happiness many a time may seem very distant

And we may want to understand life at such instants

Trials and sorrows may build up in our life

But we never gave it a land or even building rights

Troubles may fly towards us from all directions

Pointing out the flaws and weakness in our imperfection

The storm and tides may rise against us while we sail

And the pain from the fall may seem unbearable when we fail

Appearing at crossroads of nowhere we intended as it breaks our fortitude

Making us shed tears to our circumstances in the silence of our solitude

But unable to cry out as our strength escapes us and leaves us meek

That the hopes of the colourful future we pictured appear bleak

The thoughts in our mind searching for answers may go round and round

As our plans for the future and reality of life comes crumbling down

Our strength may disappoint us when we need it the most

But the God in whom we believe is the Lord of hosts

He assures us of greater glory though we struggle

And never leaves us even when we seem to lose the battle

He knows our deepest fears, our wants and needs

The pain and lags we go through and the sorrows we feel

But He urges us to hold on and not to lose faith

For He works behind the scenes for the good of our fate

And the promise of greatness and joy He has made

Are things He will ensure we see before time fades

And at all times shall we never forget His praise

‘cos in our fight will we never give up no matter the delay

Surely, there will be a silver lining on this dark cloud

And upon our heads will we wear the victory crown

So smile, let not the pain and uncertainties of life rule

'cos there is a better day ahead and God ensures this comes true

      Yes Dana, it may at times seem that He isn't there but really, He just sits back and work behind the obvious scenes visible to our eyes just to get us from one low point in life to a higher ground. i once read that just like the teacher sits back during an exams, the same way God strengthens us and sits back to put things in order for us while we may seemingly be going through trouble. Thanks very much though.

      There was a time in my life when I felt so much pain I wanted to die. And then I realized in order to be in pain I had to feel. Sometimes in life we can become hardened in our hearts; lets face if we would be on an emotional roller coaster if we allowed everything to bother us. God has promised to never leave or forsake us; and although He doesn't keep us from going through the storm, He is certainly our shelter in the midst of it. Excellent work. I truly enjoyed it.
