If you find yourself adrift,
and can see no land in sight-
If a stillness overcomes you,
with the darkening of the light.
Hold onto your destination,
your course will soon resume its pace-
All is not lost in drifting,
reflection dwells within its grace.
So gather wisdom in the solace,
as echantment feeds your soul-
Whilst you float atop the glass,
a haunting stillness makes you whole.
On the outskirts of the abyss,
you can see the lightning spark-
It fortells the storm approching,
as a harbinger in the dark.
So stay safe inside your boat,
and make it steady for the storm-
Wrap yourself in hope,
and let the journey keep you warm.
For the seas will toss and test you,
but you must remain steadfast-
So hold on tight
with all your might,
until that storm has passed.
Facing down the squall,
will bring you through the arduous night-
And when the skies are clear,
you’ll be stronger for the fight.
For a storm, it can be weathered,
and the light returns with dawn-
So leave your sails unfurled,
you must stay the course you’ve drawn.
Oh, the winds of change are brewing,
let them fill your empty sails-
As they blow away your doubts,
with the force of mighty gales.
You must harness what they bring you,
to propel you towards the shore-
Allow the power of their movement,
to bring you closer to much more.
May they carry you out of the tempest,
and ever guide your compass true-
For those winds of change are coming……….
so just hold on,
til they do.

I wrote this poem. I wrote it about being stuck, or losing steam, or experiencing the loss of hope. How we all lose momentum, but we can also find beauty in the stillness.
