In My Season - Poem by Carmela Patterson

As I sit in the calm of my solitude
And ponder the quality of my attitude
It's good to have this quietude.

Taking time to ponder the reason
I feel a sadness in this season.

It seems all I do is for naught
With insecurity I am fraught
And in a futility I am caught!

Taking time to ponder the reason
I feel frustration in this season.

Yet, I want to change my thinking
I'm wearied by the feeling of sinking!
From a well of hope I wish to be drinking

Taking time to ponder the reason
Where's the joy in my season?

It is happening, peace is arriving
I find my wounded heart surviving
And my scarred spirit is striving
With hope to the point of thriving!

In taking time to ponder the reason
I've found serenity and purpose
in my season.
