POEMS: “In God’s Hands” By Trina Graves

In God’s Hands

Some people’s lives seem to be
An immense, tempestuous, tidal sea
Waves of problems relentlessly pour
Often knocking them to the floor

But then the ocean can be calm
Many years pass with no harm
They sense the peace, here at last
Hoping all worries are in the past

Then out of the blue, a tsunami hits
Can they survive and keep their wits?
Or will they be taken down to the deep
Drowning in sorrow, a quivering heap?

But they are stronger than the most
From years of living by the coast
Building their resilience over long days
Of many harsh storms and healing sun-rays

Elements of Nature enhanced their core
Enabling them to rise-up, off the floor
‘This too shall pass,’ experience brings
Knowledge and wisdom in all things

Those who have the greatest ability
To rise above the turbulent sea
And walk on the soft, golden sands
Leave their doubts all in God’s Hands

Whatever we face in this life of ours
Frost and storm, sunshine and showers
Gives us what we came here for
Our Soul develops as it experiences more

No one escapes the storms of life
In some way there will be some strife
There’s many who’ve survived worse than you
Use them as inspiration to get you throug

************

I know I’ve been luckier than many it’s true
With fluffy white clouds and skies of blue
Of course there has been a storm or two
But I had something to get me through

I was blessed with a mother who taught me
To Let Go And Let God always be
The way to remain centred, be still
Even when facing the rockiest hill

Always holding love in my heart
Clears grey skies, clouds depart
Bringing the sunlight of God’s love
Answers flow from the Divine above
