Envy of the Downtrodden

I heard an old one say "as pitiful as a storm;" and yet, what is there to pity? 
I do not pity the wind; for it is able to come and go as it wills 
I feel no sympathy for the rain; as it bears public tears with no repercussion
And the ice and snow? 
None; because within its cold it is immune to the weight of emotion 

No I do not pity the storm.
For it is able to release its rage for the world to see yet remain unjudged


~FJ Thomas


...it is not what I was hoping for; but I am glad something surfaced 
   before my forced break :)

    Hi Flo, sorry, my friend I did not know that you have been ill. I hope that you are coming good now, my friend. There should be no envy or pity really. everything is the way it is. We must just let it all flow by. I enjoyed your poem, my friend....peter

    thanks for your thoughts on insomnia, sometimes we can lay for hours and all that goes through our mind is why sleep is so elusive. i don't know what illness you had, but i hope you are feeling better, because each word you writ makes my mind think. much love, mark.

    The title helps bring it all home. Flo, I enjoy the anecdotes here. No matter wot one labels different truths and perspectives, such as God, in the end, there is force. Everything is force. Ok, before I trance out again (hehe!), dropping in to 'say' that I hope you are on the mend (I know, I know, it's tough).

    Silent One eludes to you having surgery. Is this poem about the Natural Forces that have bought you this fate? I wouldn't pity Nature noth'n. Best of luck with the surgery. And great finger's up to Nature.

    No pity should come to anything that unleashes rage and violence without a conscience... Thought provoking lines and powerful imagery made this such an interesting read. Great writing, FJ!

    Can I say, super yay!! I am also glad that you were able to come up with this, Flo! I really love the line of thinking that you went with here--it is so true! Definitely a different perspective and that last line summed it so well. I have always been so fascinated with storms, like what you say-- it is unabashed. Thinking and praying for you extra extra today... also for your surgeons and all medical staff. I know you can bounce back from this! Sending out positive thoughts to you dear Flo <3!

    ...and the sage speaketh once again. Am I being repetitive? :-). Blown away by the images and the message. Can't help but pop up on your page before you go to sleep. Tomorrow's D Day...many people from different corners of the world will be sending silent intentions for you. hugs!
