On this gloomy day

On this gloomy day

A Poem by ShyGuyShares

On this gloomy day,

when the Rain decided to pour
and the Wind had something to say,

I was caught within a twister of emotions.


Each one wanting - waiting - to roar.

Sadness had trumped Anger

and Happiness did not even bother trying anymore.

Rain poured and floods had turned to oceans.


Divided by the body of water, I became a stranger.

But Hope did not die, rather, she built a ship

at an attempt at staying friends with her.

The friendship that is built will come to fruition.


I was confident it would, wouldn't it?

Storms come and go and I was certain the ocean would drain.

Sadness thought she'd finally trapped Anger and Happiness in a pit,

but worry not, for Happiness continues to fight on.


I believe Sadness can't and won't remain.

The oceans will dry up, and on that moment I will not stay.

When Sadness finally falls, a friendship we will maintain.

When Happiness triumphs, she will roar like that of a lion.


And so on this gloomy day,

I'll let Happiness be my captain.

She will lead the way

and life will continue on a forward motion
