Storm at Sea

wpid-img_20150423_200540

We are nothing but vessels on the sea,
constantly praying that a storm isn’t brewing.
But one always is-
and once the winds call the clouds to attention
and the downpour begins,
there’s nowhere to go.

We are stuck
in the middle of an empty ocean
with nothing-
only our hopes and prayers to protect us.

We have only a small faith
that lightning won’t strike our masts,
that we wont capsize,
that this storm will end.
But it always does-
The clouds will subside,
the sun will arise,
and a new day will appear.

We may be shaken up,
bruised,
and a little dizzy,
but we survive the storms-
only to appreciate the sunny days
even more.

    1. Well the skies still open up and the sun shines again. You just may not be there to see it, haha. But no, I think things always get better in some way. It may not be how you would imagine or necessarily choose, but it does get better.
      And if you literally don’t survive, then well, the peace may not come for you on earth, but it may come for others. Or for you in the after life- I don’t know if you’re religious or not. Not trying to offend you if you aren’t.
