Storm Inside


I fight to swim in this storm inside
I reach for shore in this raging tide
It tosses me, I think I'll drown
I'll never reach that shore-side town
From the waves my voice cries out
But the water drowns it, kills the shout
Will I be heard, will I be saved
Will this ocean ever be braved
I try to swim, try to stay afloat
Waiting, hoping for a passing boat
The waves push me down, I think I'm gone
But before I sink there breaks the dawn
It brings light but with it a tune
What's this song, I'll find out soon
Above the storm I hear it clear
It's the song that says hope is near
I find the strength to stay above the swell
I find the strength to swim till all is well
The song gets louder overcoming the storm
It nears and I feel it, safe and warm
And then before my strength gives way
I feel a hand reach down to save my day
Up out of the waves I'm pulled
You're now safe I was told
Now I stay ashore and watch the sea
Every grateful that from it I'm free

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
