The Storm

The Storm

The storm that you woke up
with that's rolling in your head.
It's all the things we keep inside
before we go to bed.

We can't swim across the Ocean
and we can row against the tide
but every storm has beauty if
we dare to look inside.

Imagine for a minute how happy
life would be. If we focus on
the future as far as
we could see.

    Very uplifting and well written, and you spoke the truth.
    Your title intrigued me because I also have a poem with the same title. (Report) Reply
