For all the ones that in these demanding times of insecurity and limited freedom and hightened risks feel helpless against the forces. You are strong.
Sometimes I feel it is incredibly hard
to let the growing storms of the time outside of me
not affect my inner waters.
Sometimes I feel that all I can do
is helplessly watch the devastating waves
toss and clash against the smooth rocks of my soul,
causing me to tremble in worry and fear.
Sometimes I feel it is unbelievably tempting
to hold on tight and tighter still,
bracing myself against the powers that surround me,
for it is the only way to protect my waters and my soul.
And sometimes, yes, there are some times, when I feel strong enough
to just let go and let them be,
and set the storms free, inside of me,
for there is beauty in a whirlwind, too.
And every single rock and drop of my soul
comes out stronger still.
