Stormy Pass

 

1All week I have struggled with a feeling of loss.
I have no answers to calm my heart’s pause.

I’m flashing back to old feelings again.
Not knowing what brings them; hoping they will end.

Hurricane Matthew knocks on our door.
Will he dismantle this life that’s been so secure?

Will my home as I know it be no more?
What of my friends, my community, it’s lore?

I feel for those struggling under the weight of his reign.
I feel for those hurting, those lost, all the same.

I question my choices, as firm as they seem.
Will I regret these decisions when age takes hold of me?

Uncertainty flitters all around this life.
Perhaps one day I will feel all is right.
