Broken BOAT resized

When you are broken

Like a boat dashed upon the shore

In stormy weather

When it feels you are naught but wreckage

And only a remnant of your self remains

When your surface has been worn down

By angry waves that toss you about

Like a ship upon the sea

When life has scraped and bruised you

And you feel you can’t go on

When your heart is torn and heavy

And the burdens weigh you down

Hold close this thought:

Nothing lasts forever

Not good times,

Not bad times.

Let hope rise up within you

For this, too, shall pass

And lessons learned in the valley

Will come to your aid one day

I pray that soon

Your suffering will cease

And once again you will feel

Sweet peace
