Never Stops

Ocean waves crash upon rocks

Determined to make their way

No matter if the journey is blocked

Defiant resilience remains

 

 

Sadly the same cannot be said for myself

I don’t have the willpower to go on

A rocky path is always sure to overwhelm

My defiant resilience is all gone

 

 

Costal winds wail, as they swell and gust

Battering what lies on land

Never showing any sign of disgust

When it barely even moves the sand

 

 

Where does it find the motivation to keep going

When it’s not making any impact at all

Never stopping, those winds just keep on blowing

It’s ambition makes me feel very small

 

 

Heavy rains crack and slap upon the ground

With a fury that will never relent

Torrential droplets fiercely punch and pound

Determined to make their descent

 

 

Being soaked in the rain is a nuisance and pain

Yet it still has more courage than me

No matter how it ends, it still falls again

With no fears and no pageantry

 

 

Falling rains freeze becoming icy hail

Clattering with chilled renewed purpose

Reinvigorated velocity fired from the gales

No more than an irritant to it’s targets

 

 

Stung as I’m pelted by droplets of ice

Even water is more resourceful that I

Could this be nature’s way of giving advice

To give a more robust approach a try

 

 

The infernally positive rays of the sun

Are kept hidden behind the storm clouds

Never alarmed if it’s being shunned

It’s always shining, even if there’s a shroud

 

 

Nature doesn’t cognise its existence

It has a goal that it will never stop

It doesn’t care when it faces resistance

All it knows, is it has a job

 

 

Here I am hitting the barricades of paralyzing self doubt

While nature never stops, unperturbed and strong

If only I was more like nature and knew what my life was all about

Instead of lost within the storm, wishing I knew how to move along
