Life Throws Us Many Challenges
Life throws us many challenges and sometimes just when you think you’ve got a little closer to the mountain top, darkness falls and fears and frustrations kick in. No one said life was ever going to be easy, but we must remember there are many things in life to be grateful for right now. Having an attitude of gratitude will become your inner torch, and will fill up your soul with an abundance of love and light. This next poem was written by me, during a challenging time in my life and my self expression through my poetry, at times, was my saving grace. I now share this with you in the hope that it will help you in some way to move forward regardless of the barriers that are in your way. Much love to you today and always, Clarabelle.
Keep a Strong Mind
Too many things, so much to do;
One day feeling bright, the other feeling blue.
At this age now, I look life in the eyes;
Where am I going? Where’s the surprise?
It’s gone a bit stale, I feel the dust;
I need to take action, this is a must.
The mountain is high, and the weather is bleak;
I must keep a strong mind, even though I feel weak.
Trudge, trudge, every step up the hill;
Moves me closer, this dream I will fulfill.
To escape in my imagination, makes me feel free;
It uplifts my spirits, like the wind’s carrying me.
For I come alive, when I write through my soul;
It opens the straight jacket, and fills up the black hole.
There are no boundaries, no pain my way;
The creativity is flowing, I’m listening to what I say.
It feels like magic, the words they come fast;
Meaningful moments, inspiration that lasts.
This feels easy, as I explore deep inside;
The experiences I hold, come in like the tide.
This I must do, it’s where I feel best;
Forget the distractions and let my mind just rest.
For here I find peace, just the silence and me;
My world is not empty, when I just be.
