Turbulence

Turbulence.
There is
Turbulence
Up here.
In the air.
And it throws us
And thrashes us.
We become
As light
As a bird.
Even though we are
A massive weight.

But in my heart
There is calm.
Calm
And peace.
The turbulence
Does not effect
My emotions
Or my
Happiness.
For I have become
A part of something
Something good
Something special
Something that keeps
Growing.

And I find myself
Finding
a new me
One that I did not
Explore
Before.
One that I didn’t know
Exists.
It is a journey
Of discovery
Thrilling
More thrilling
Than I ever
Imagined.

The turbulence rocks
Around me
Surrounds me.
But it does not
Envelop
Embrace
Enter
Me.
Because there is calm
In my soul.

I hear a beat,
I know the sound
I feel a skip,
One that I’m used to
I see a picture,
But this one is new
I cry of pain,
Because I know this is real.

Twisting them, stretching them, turning them round and round,

You’ve gotta settle, stop being so choosy, it’s a boy’s world after all
And you’re just one of the millions who think their worth something, have the gall.
You’ve got to start looking better, so that you’ll be noticed when you walk through town
And perhaps you can lose a few pounds too, so we can pull your resume dress size down.

Turbulence.
There is
Turbulence
Up here.
In the air.
