Daring Do

January 6, 2015 2 comments

Tell us about the time you rescued someone else (person or animal) from a dangerous situation. What happened? How did you prevail?

In response to today’s prompt, I am posting a poem on Courage which I had done earlier



When you are in the middle of critics
And not a  single soul believes you
When the whole world thinks you are a liar
Can you stand up for the truth?

When failure stares at you
When anguish, sorrow and pain confront you
When storms tear you asunder
Do you still follow your dream?

When there is a steep mountain to climb
And your legs are weak and tired
When the slope is slippery and arduous
Do you lose sight of your goal?

When this body is shrieking in agony
And the final moment nears
When the last breath is seeping out
Can you smile and face death?

Courage is not bravado
You don’t have to shout and roar
It is that little voice within you
That constantly guides you

The Storm

February 7, 2012 2 comments

The sail rises and falls
As a strong wind blows
Tossing our boat
On the stormy sea

Dark clouds hover above
Casting a shadow over
Shimmering blue waters
Like a grey and dark monster

The reefs and rocks endure
The wrath of the sea
Like faith they stand witness
To the raging, stormy sea

The surging waves resound
Like a restless teenager
And like his temper tantrums
The wind cries reach a crescendo

Finally the storm abates
And a calm descends
Like a tired son falling sleep
On hearing mothers lullaby

Our hearts sing prayers of gratitude
As we make a final dash to shore
Clinging on hope and faith
And heroic stories to relate
