There are times


There are times

There are times the rain
is so heavy, and the cloud so
thick I can hardly see.

There are times the dark
is so choking I can hardly

There are times the words
are strangled in my throat.

There are times the pain
grips throughout, and I
am completely at its mercy.

And there are times when it’s
much worse than that…

  1. I love this poem…it struck a chord instantly. I wondered why and then I remembered I’ve known this, but I had forgotten.

    That’s a killer punch at the end! 👏👏👏 great work Paul 🙌✨
