Rain and Wind and Hail
The rain has started; the wind is blowing
and all hail is raining on me. The rain is
drowning me in tears, the wind is keeping
me from rising up and hail keep hitting
me over my head. I have only
one door with no other exits.
And If I do walk out that door, the rain
will drain my spirit, the wind will steal my joy
and hail will darken my day. Sometimes I feel like I was
born to be defeated; with a mission only to
watch others prosper over me.
Fear rules me, hope has escaped and I have
very little confidence that everything is
going to be okay. If I can just walk behind
that door and feel the fresh breeze of a warm day
and move that dark cloud waiting for me at my door.
The dark cloud prevents the
sun from shining and commands the rain, wind
and hail to stay on my trail. One morning,
I couldn’t hear the growling sounds of
the rain, wind and hail. Suddenly, I felt no fear,
and I realized the rain, wind and hail had
past. I walked through that front door with confidence.
Never again will I let a storm stand in the way of
my dreams. And when that storm does return,
I will be ready for the forecast.
