The path is heavy, the trail is hard. The pressure builds, the stress mounts as hope dwindles with each passing storm. The body tired; the mind deranged, mangled, detached. The emotions numb, strangled, wore and tore. What more can the life endure? Chasing dead ends, and time that is empty to the soul. Struggle, stretch and bend until it breaks. Feelings and so many mistakes that takes away the breath, the thrill and exchanges for a chill the heat can not cure. The wind howling, the rain crashing down, so much of a burden, what in life is worth living for? Thunder mixed with blunders, the lightening blinds and raises the ashes of the hearth the wind carries the past away. A silence comes, the calm of the ocean tide resides…the storm has passed, the darkness to day as a new light greets the horizon. Hold on to that feeling of hope, strength and courage as the rainbow kisses the shore.
