The Challenges of life ( a poem of inspiration)
The rolling thunder, to loudly crash, as the lightning's flash,
A howling wind, to accompany, all, as the tree limbs crash,
As so, the trials of life are many, and upon a greening earth,
How each fares, by remaining strong, is to decide our worth.
Ocean's waves do rage, and all to surge, far beyond the bow,
A tiny boat, still remains afloat, resisting the storms, some how.
Its sails are tattered, and its loosened ropes all hang untethered,
The hull still to be holding fast, though its boards are weathered.
Through trials, their challenges great, and as always, they persist,
Each temptation, ours not ever to give in, must everyone so resist.
Made stronger by those falls, as then, we may return to steady feet,
Our endurance, graced, by each attempt, all obstacles, to defeat.
The journeys of our lives, so wrought with worries, some so feared,
Everyone's ship on the oceans, wide, are not so easily to be steered.
As surely as a warming sun does rise and in every finest morning,
A new day then to test our faiths, awaits us, there in our adorning.
