Life on the Ocean Wave

When trials and tribulations send our boats rocking back and forth it is easy to over- identify with the chaos. Sometimes it helps to step back a bit and to try observing the storm from a distance, remembering that we are so much more than our suffering and that everything is temporary.

Not The Storm

The storms that youโ€™ve been riding

May toss your ship around

Yet deep down youโ€™re still gliding

Shells whisper calmer sounds

React not to the crashing

Of waves against your side

Though fierce forces are thrashing

Soon they too will subside

The howling and the suction

Career you left and right

The foam froths with destruction

Soul tousled by the fright

In troubled seas the wisdom

Comes surging forth untamed

Just close your eyes and listen

Then choppy seas will tame
