Patience 


Souldier Girl


I have been through unsightly storms and flung by your wild sea
I longed to, just for a time…
Remain dry
But this, my friends, is an uncontrollable life
The water is not ready …to stop rushing
So I say, “I am done running!”
I cannot place my palm to the wind

…redirecting it

Nor my body to the ocean

And pretend…not to be absorbed by it

You hold my feet down so I may withstand it!

You flood my graffiti heart

so I may be born again

A reformed spirit

Your blood makes me permanent!

If I yell at the rain and with a heated temper question it
My tree will only wither …in stubborn ignorance

Choosing love instead,

I bathe in your rawness!

I bury my will into the unknown

Graciously taming my patience.

I am an Indie Author. Fresh on the scene. I published my first two books thanks to Amazon Kindle. And I have published using createspace and keep on publishing. Currently I am working on my follow up novel to my romance novella Love. A strange person I am trying to tell stories from the inside out where the reader can live the life rather than just read it.
