Time To Time - Poem by Gero Lorna

From time to time
we've confessed here, surrendered here
and forgiven here.
Dark clouds of frustration
hover here, hurricanes of emotion rest here.
We've cast personal lines
of doubt here, freeing ourselves here
from time to time.

We've experienced defeat here,
redemption here.
From time to time I've blamed
him here, challenged him here,
he's given me advice here
from time to time.

I've lost myself here,
found myself here. Through others
prayers I've been brought here.
I've waited here, been left alone here
I'm okay here
from time to time.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A year and five months ago I was injured at work. The injury was pretty severe leaving me for the first time in my life helpless. Since I was 16 years of age being physically fit was the second most important passion in my life, poetry being my first and I was lost. My injury at first defeated my motivation and passion to regain my strength, leaving me in a place that had me feeling all of these emotions and feelings written in my poem. Everyone has that place where they go to allowing to do and feel whatever it is. I guess it can be ones permanent home if it needs to be.

It's funny though cause I don't know what this place is or what to call it if it were depression, denial, fear or none of the above but I was okay there, alone.

Thank you
