Clouds in the sky
Engulfing everything in darkness
A turbulent storm on the horizon
Looming large menacingly
Threatening to destroy everything…
The harvest of my labored efforts
Getting ravaged in front of my eyes
And I stand there, watching helplessly,
Trying to come to terms with this sudden blow of fate.
A blow of fate or an opportunity by fate…
It’s all in the mind.
It could be the end or it could be the beginning of something new.
The clouds have destroyed me but they will help me bloom again
Into something better, something more beautiful.
I looked up in the sky again…
And all I see now is the benevolent clouds
Filled with the bounty of life and hope
And like a seed, I am ready again to be reborn.
