Cloudy Days

Cloudy Days

A Poem by Mary

Lately my life has been a storm,

It starts out as a little drizzle of problems,

Where you think once the problems are taken care of

You can continue on your merry way.


But no.

The rain urges on and more problems arise.

You forget what free time feels like,

And the most important things take a backseat.


The only thing you can do is hold an umbrella,

And hope it doesn’t blow away too.

But with it your hands are still full,

And the problems are still there

Just momentarily blocked.


You wait and wait,

For the sky to clear.

And sometimes it does.

But the sun can only shine so long,

And you feel again the calm before the storm.


Before you know it there are rain drops on your shoulder,

And winds that spin you out of control once more.

If only there was a shelter for life’s storm.

I've just read this poem again and saw my comment. I failed to elaborate on your words so I'll do it now. Sometimes life gives us too much to handle at once. Your poem emphasizes that quite well with the use of the storm metaphor. We can never know what to expect next and all we can do is brace ourselves and hold on for the next round. It all seems unfair, but there must be a purpose that makes us stronger.

I hope everything is working out OK for you. Your not alone in your thoughts. Keep writing.

So true! I like the way you wrote this, in the beginning the storm is just a drizzle- nothing to worry about- and then it's a full blown storm. Then the sun comes out and it kind of seems to start over again. I can relate to this. Hope things get better for you, seems like sometimes there can be some pretty long moments of sunshine too. If there wasn't bad in the world we wouldn't know what good is. Nice write, I liked this. Can't see any errors.
