Go Gently - Poem by Michael Olakunle Adesanya

If the sky above seems cloudy,
And you are left out in the ran,
If you are searching for a rainbow,
But the colors bring you pain,
If your world is not revolving,
And there is no end in sight,
If you are looking for the sunshine,
But all you see is night,
If all around are smiling,
But all you can do is frown,
If you are tired of all this living,
When life just bring you down,
Then look beyond your teardrops,
At the wonders of this land,
The beauty of a flower,
Like velvet in your hand.

Feel the air around you,
The smell of new mown hay,
Laughing children in the park.
The innocence there at play,
Imagine floating with a butterfly,
As she flutters between the trees,
Or the whispers of the ocean,
on warm hot summer's breeze,
Think of the taste of candy floss,
As it melts upon your tongue,
Or the melody of morning birds,
As they greet each day with song,
Remember words of beauty,
Told in your mother's embrace,
Feel the gentleness of her touch,
As she softly kissed your face,
Seek the good within you,
Cast the clouds from your shy,
Don't look toward the pavement,
But hold your head up high,
Think not what life owes you,
But of all you have to give,
Forget about tomorrow,
Then you can start to live.

So bless this age you are living in,
With the gifts you can bestow,
Don't disregard the stream of life,
Go gentle with the flow.

    Dear Mr.Adeanya, I didn't know you wrote this poem, I've wrote this of my own by looking at the picture. I put in The Flow of Life and wrote this poem, I've always write poetry by feeling the spirit. Because I love God and this was my gift writing this poem. I needed to know, are we in the same mind? My friend found this and told me which I didn't know this was you and I've no idea that you wrote this poem. I made a cope over to you and you will see that I wrote the same words and the same thought....I hope you will write me back.... (Report) Reply

    If the sky above seems cloudy,

    And your are left out in the rain,

    If your are searching for a rainbow,

    But the colors bring you pain,

    If your world is not revolving,

    And there is no end in sight,

    If your are looking for the sinshine,

    But all you see is night,

    If all around are smiling,

    But all you can do is frown,

    If you are tired of all this living,

    When life just brings you down

    Then Look beyond your teardrops.

    At the wonders of this land,

    The beauty of a flower,

    Like velvet in your hand,

    Feel the air around you,

    The smell of new mown hay,

    Laughing children in the park,

    The innocence there at play,

    Imagine Floating with a butterfly,

    As she flutters between the trees,

    Or the whispers of the ocean,

    On wram hot summer's breeze,

    Think of the taste of candy floss,

    As it melts upon you tongue,

    Or the melody of morning birds,

    As they greet each day with song,

    Remember words of beauty,

    Told in your mother's embrace,

    Feel the gentleness of her touch,

    As she softly kissed your face,

    Seek the good within you,

    Cast the Clouds from your sky,

    Don't look toward the pavement,

    But hold your head up high,

    Thank not what life owns you,

    But at all you have to give,

    Forget about tomorrow,

    Then you can start to live,

    So Bless this age your to living,

    With the gifts you can bestow,

    Don't disregard the stream of life,

    Go gently with the Flow!
