I sit on the rocks of reckoning
Looking out to the sea of souls

The lighthouse in the background
Allows me to feel  secure

Fog darkens with the onset of evening
I feel the chill through my sweater

I ponder the turn of events that have
Caused me such distress

O Lord of sea, air, sky,and all the elements look down upon this weary woman

Fighting the good fight gets tiresome
Sometimes we are not worth it


It's said there is a reason for everything I wish I knew what it was

My neighbors daughter who tried to commit suicide, but was saved

The young woman died of complications leaving a husband and two children behind

It is all too sad to contemplate, an internet affair that went astray,such utter futility

The waves crash upon the rocks and their  salty spray mingles with my tears

 

Tears for foolish fickleness of humanity!

We are so much in the same place right now, that I just wait for you to write how I feel. I can't even express it. The picture is perfect. The beauty of the grass and buildings and the ominous colors of the sky and water. Thank you for this offering, Eileen.

Eileen,

Yes, life is FULL of grief and suffering, but if we learn to turn to The One who can give us peace, hope, strength, and eternal life, then life could be so much more bearable! Excellent thought provoker you have penned, and the pic is absolutely aMAZing! BRAVA; extremely well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

None more fickle or foolish that what we find in the human condition.
Take time for yourself.

The Tempter has numerous hazards and traps laid for us in our path Eileen
That is why we must remain always in a state of grace, and keep praying constantly for guidance and protection from above.
I agree with Ed, that beautiful place looks well worth visiting, to find some inner calm and respite from today's toils and ardors !

Life is full of tragedies. Every morning I read the papers the head lines jump out with recent killings and mayhem that has happened in the world. It can weigh you down and dishearthen you but we have to do our best and keep our trust in God.

Nothing foolish about tears for others or the self...they are as cleansing as a spring rain or the spray from the ocean...would like to visit that spot, I find that lighthouse scene to be so calming and tranquil...thanks for posting it...Ed & rufuz

Dear Eileen, a very, deeply touching write. Sometimes the pain of others, strangers, can hurt us very bad, and that's probably a good thing.
