The Storm

Who is the arbiter of my intentions?
Can't I settle without abstentions?
My mind refuses to calm her storm.
How can this be my universal norm?
Lord of heaven and earth, please give peace.
I beg you that my neural trouble will cease.
Even if the rainbow comes after the hurricane,
its leprechaun will bear no gold - just pain.

Nice composition.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on April 29, 2021:

I enjoyed reading this poem. The frustration stands out, and we probably have all experienced those feelings.

Brenda, without God what are we and what can we do? Nothing. May the Almighty continue to hear and answer mankinds' prayers world without end. Amen and amen.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on April 28, 2021:

Great poem.

We all have times when our day is not what we desire.

We want our nerves to subside, because we know we can't control the actions or feelings of another.

We ask God for guidance to help us through...knowing we will still feel the pain, but we can survive if it ceases.

The Sampsons,

Thank you.

Very true for so many, and very moving.

Miebakagh Fiberesima from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on April 28, 2021:

When we can't help ourselves, prayers to God bring the much help. The poem is a delight reminding us how fray and weak we are. But God helps us.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on April 28, 2021:

Guckenberger, I enjoyed reading your poem. I like the image and such words are true.
