Quietly, creeping into our lives,
everyone faces those awful moments
when a normally cheerful day changes
mutates into a cold foggy afternoon.
Personal thoughts are shrouded in
darkness, disguised and unclear.
The sun is gone––What can be done?
Surrender to the moment and weep
or take pen in hand and write freely.
Discover the path of thinking that
lead to the depths of despair, then
ask...Why is this happening to me?
Becoming an unbiased observer searching
for reasons that support the negative
is easy, but reversing and analyzing
the other viewpoint is important also.
What says that...Maybe my conclusions
are wrong? With time and faith, the sun will
shine again as I fill my heart with gratitude.
