The Barbs of Life

At times the barbs of life can pull you down
as angry whirling tempests spin their tales;
it seems the darkest storm is all around
and then a slash of wind tears down your sails.
From near despair a light within you glows
inside a heart that's been there once before,
to plant a seed that only hope can sow
and guide you toward a friendly distant shore.
So ride a wave that binds you to your fate,
embrace that hope that even blind can see,
then smile and cry the tears it will create 
and curse the trial that brought you to your knees.
For it's what we survive that makes us strong
and those that share the journey all along.

Excellent encouragement-" curse the trial that's brought you to your knees. For it's what we survive that makes us strong and those that share the journey all along." ( I will always be thankful for the kind and constructive comments I received from you, on my first sonnet here on PS. ( deleted when I left a couple of years ago.) Much appreciated...(((HUGS)))
