Stepping Stone - Poem by Joline Gordon

Rain pours from the sky
As if to weep for me
It becomes dim and gloomy
As if to scold me
The world is trying to tell me
Something that I already know
It is a constant in my mind
I am attempting to ignore

I am consumed by the battles
My heart has come to face
I truly wish these feelings
Would leave without a trace
But I can't control my heart
Or tell it what to do
My desires are hard to deny
Even if I wanted to

I had hoped to use this time
To discover who I am
Nothing seems to be happening
According to my plan
So I will take this time in my life
For exactly what it may be
Nothing more than a stepping stone
On my path to self discovery
