A Dedication

I dedicate this poem to my counsellors, mentors and coaches.  Thank you for helping me see my potential.  I also would like to dedicate this poem to all my friends who have begun to master the greatest distance, a distance of 18". Stay strong! 

Inspirational poetry can be found in:

Let the Grey Clouds Roll In

Let the grey clouds roll in

And filling me within

Darkness appears,

Along with fears

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Cover my face and skin

Warm and wet and loving rain

Washing away tears ‘n pain

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Thunder claps ‘n lightening

Flashes of light and sound

Help me to turn around

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Seeing and following

Truth, honesty and serenity

And believing for eternity

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Nothing will be stopping

Colorful arcs of rainbow

Painting new canvas below

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Strokes of color fillin‘

A world of possibilities

With many capabilities

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Suddenly believing

There is more to life

Than chaos and strife

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Standing and actioning

New beliefs without calamity

Creating a new reality

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

I am standing and smiling

Living and loving

Dreaming and being

*
