Feeling Pain

The pain I feel 
A bad storm,
Reeking havoc on my life
Taking control 
I cover myself
Trying to find shelter
There’s no way out
Facing the storm
I fight through
With less pain
The storm calms 
I finally see the sun

    Love the uplifting ending most of all, as we all go through life's storms it is always good to be reminded the sun does eventually reappear. Awesome poetry. Love, Shar

    Hello, Shannon! And welcome to our family. I can relate to your poem, now in Florida, it's raining every day...with stormy winds...however, sun shines after every rain. the problem is the humidity!! : ) Say hi to your Mom, and keep sharing. Ruben.

    Hmm, men often try to run away from the challenges of life, but we’ve all got to face it and at the end it will surely be over and… we will see the sun. this is a very wonderful, comforting piece… wishing you all the best with your writes,you've got a great talent how is you studies and your sis?… I hope both of you are doing well… you’ve got a lovely family.

    wow... loved this one too, I try to comment without looking at others comments that way I wont be tempted to say the same things as everyone else. Powerful and straight to the point, looking forward to more. Enjoy your day.

    I too face my cloudy skies, and am reassured when I see the sun pierce through, that it's only a temporary storm. So much more beauty after it passes, that when it's there, I have so much to think about while awaiting its' passing...Raul

    Sounds like you could utter the miracle word from the War Within and you'd see the sun with less of a struggle.

    Life is like that sometimes isn't it....But its the battles, that make us better, wiser and stronger! That fill us with empathies and sympathies! That keep us grounded and humble, and realizing our dependencies upon someone greater than ourselves!!? Again, wonderful searching write of reflections!!~"Love & Warmth To You & Yours, Always, John!!":):) Bye Again ~
