After The Storm Was Gone I Now Write This


Such loud thunders of a storm have now passed
But all of these things we've surely surpassed;
No storm or typhoon can break our strong bones,
No wind or force can destroy our firm homes.
We face each day with unity and smiles,
With our clean shoes and sandals, we've walked miles.
True, many have died but many have lived.
See truth's hope and don't be by lies deceived.
From the mud we rose and touch happiness.
Consider this as a way to greatness,
For we learned more to care for each other
And cherish this reunion forever.
Be on guard, don't let fear overtake you.
Keep in mind that our days are always new.
Nothing can ever take away our strength,
Our days are always good and long in length.
Let's embrace this day and embrace the new sun
Always remember that battles are won!
After the storm was gone I now write this,
I'm your friend mostly in times like this!

    Wonderful verses, a kind of poem that lifts one's weakened spirit on his feet, and ending it with that note of support as a friend is just thoughtful. Well done. (Report) Reply

    the wonder of life...set to follow the beginning of the day.....every dew
    invites the wonderful and beautiful world to a pleasing moment with
    God.....the Lord speaks in many events....feeling and undertaking.....

    a perfect reflection shows us to learn from that turmoil.....that suffering
    seen....from nothing to nothing, where the creation is truly made for us....
    just always thanks the Lord thy God my friend....a star and a salute in
    your memorable poem of this century....thanks you and God bless....
    a 10 +++++ (Report) Reply

    very strong message of hope...
    positive in life's problems and troubles is a gift from God...indeed its true that many have died but still more will live because it is the human destiny to surpass the nature's fury with Gods love and grace.

    all the best... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
