Tides Change

In the blink of an eye they can be gone
Then we're left here trying to carry on
Storms will come & storms will go
We all have a finale to our show

We must evolve & grow with each episode
Instead of being timid, gotta be proud & bold
You may fold but don't ever quit the game
When feeling low there's much more to gain

Your pain can expose things that you didn't see
Mines helped me find this thing called poetry
I was knocked to my knees when my Granny died
Now these stanza lines help me continue to ride

Outside there will be sunshine & there will be rain
Find those things that uplift & help you maintain
When life's going down the drain, plug the hole
Jump over your obstacles with a vaulter's pole

Console those around you when it's their time
Tides can quickly change at the drop of a dime
I use rhymes to help myself and to help others
Treating the wounds of my sisters and brothers
