Inside of us, there is a swirling sea
Of anger, hate and fear
And each huge wave sweeps relentlessly
As through our lives, we steer.

The waters rush over rugged rocks
And amidst slimy, tangled weeds
The distant shore sure seems to mock
When our bruised spirits bleed.

Darkness lurks behind the setting sun
In the shadows prowls the night
O’er the horizon, clouds on the run
Dusk puts up a losing fight.

The cold descends like a blanket dense
Not a star shines in the sky
The silence seems so immense
As the hours slink slowly by.

But just when it can’t get more bleak
The turbulence does end.
And the words of hope that the air then speaks
The despairing heart befriends.

It’s early yet to let the paddles rest
The striving will go on.
But then will come at Fate’s behest
A new resplendent dawn.

    This is the first time I comment on your site, but I’ve been keeping up with your work for about a few weeks. I admire the passion with which you write the articles and hope someday I can do the same. Love

    anger, hate or fear
    love, passion or joy
    they all come to show
    how life hasn’t left us
    between the twilight
    and the breaking dawn

    Wonderful and hopeful words. The turbulence inside is what causes pain sometimes, and days drag with such feelings within. I like how your poem transits from that turbulence to a sort of calm towards the end.

      It’s true, isn’t it? However dark the night, the morning does come…so why dwell on our sorrows?
