Weathering the Storm


Tossed upon the waters
Waves crashing over stern
fear of capsizing
has me white knuckled, holding course

Steady now, I'll right this ship
As best as I know how

Lone captain of this vessel
gazing onto the horizon

"Will we make it now?"

Excellent poem. I could feel my heart race as I often do these days-and taste the salt water on my lips. Your poem gave me courage, and helped me remember that life's obstacles are only part of the adventure- your words helped me embrace the idea of facing the challenges with a capable attitude. Thanks-

You've established a good rhythm here. There is also something unusual, yet quaint, about your line-breaks. Lovely poem altogether.
