Standing On Soothing Shores
>> View all 3
Alone and lost amongst the trees
the young one shook and wept.
He yearned for home upon his knees,
in fright as daylight slept.
He knelt in wait but night remained,
as roaring clouds rolled in.
The skies became a beast unchained,
as rain beset his skin.
Yet in that dark and stormy bind
the young one faced his fear.
And as he rose in peaceful mind
the skies began to clear.
And with the doubt and gloom at bay,
the rays of dawn came down.
The sanguine light revealed the way -
a pathway home was found.
A timid boy no longer now,
he strolled beyond the trees.
He sang aloud, enjoying how
he felt the sun and breeze.
His home would welcome him at last -
his goal and greatest need,
but if he ran the trail too fast
he'd miss the sights to see.
So knowing now when things go wrong,
or if he's lost his way,
to face the fears by staying strong -
became a man today.

|beautiful resonant imagery; adore the classical format youve used. and the closing stanza is perfection, a summative force of what resides to make a man indeed.
