PASSING S T O R M (Poem)

Ride through the storm,

Worrisome of course,

That it may obliterate my home,

Wind soaring through,

Huge rain droplets furiously clapping against the windows,

Like it knows who’s home,

Don’t be overconcerned with who may betray you,

A ray of light will open the revelatory veil for you to revel the truth that’s been unraveled,

Often times we think why do good people go through bad things?

Let us not take our tribulations personal,

We’re just simply passing by this life,

The storm is merely passing by,

as it always does anywhere else in the world,

we are not exempt from struggles,

We all go through it,

Why is this happening to me?

This storm is no respector of persons,

It’ll get better after it worsens,

there’s no coercin’, whether you’re making the right or wrong decisions,

Every answer we choose must be captured with precision,

Quickly observe and measure before making an incision,

For as long as we walk righteously,

We need not to fret over who’s plotting shiestily,

As they vainly spend their time idley.

Bad things happen to good people NOT because they’re not good enough, but because this world is a battlefield that we are placed in, and we must be ready for anything that may come our way. We are here to get stronger everytime we almost lose our minds. This life can make you and/or break you.

You cannot run away from it.

We must face it.

Confront it with fortitude.

Behind every tribulation there is a lesson to be learned. The best way to ride through the storm is by stockpiling on vast amounts of WISDOM that will save you.

Writer. Poet. Artist. Lyricist. Born in December 16, 1995. I'm Mexican-American of Native American and Spanish descent. Southwestern US born -> Grew up in the Chicagoland area including Northwest Indiana (mostly East Chicago) -> moved to a warmer place. I've been writing since like around the late 2000s. Depression and anxiety was swallowing me and I had difficulty trusting others, so I decided to confide in writing. It started off as Spanish songwriting, then it evolved into English poetry, prose, and short stories the more I improved my English grammar and vocabulary. I once had to take ESL classes, until it was determined that I didn't need to anymore around middle school. I became so dedicated to writing that I just did it everyday, and it served as my daily therapy as I was battling with negative thoughts. It put my mind in a state of meditation where it opened me up to many ideas and inspiration that I lived to create. I began to notice that I could write and speak things into existence with my words and actions. I had to find myself, and search for the power of the mind.
