This Too Shall Pass - Poem by Joeline Rayment

It is said with a gaze as steady as sky
wispy and wavy but never a lie
It is said with a smile small or unseen
careful and quiet for all that has been

when trouble crashes over you
when hardship cracks the ground
when pain pierces past your skin
when walls are your surround
take a breath and remember
this too shall pass

when joy makes you giddy
when brightest blinds your gaze
when pride holds you up above
when easiness lets you laze
take a breath and remember
this too shall pass

treasure every moment
learn from every pain
gather in your memories
they are what you truly gain
live every second
love with all your heart
never give in or give up
embrace every new start

everything is precious
all of life is glorious
this too shall pass

Poet's Notes about The Poem

CBT influenced by realism (or cynicism)
Something of personal wisdom mixed with inspiration and self ego.
Pretentious Platitude's that for me is still true.
