Blown Off Course


down a path of life that seemed so right so sure so secure

and then a cloud

and then another

the air is black and the skin shudders and the walls blow away

truth crawls into the horizon

lightening and fury of wind and waves

drowning and fighting to stay alive

and then it’s over after a long time and everything is gone

washed to a foreign shore and do not speak the language

broken and poor and everything you know is challenged

bending and learning

wisdom and humility

loss of riches and wealth

but gaining of the marrow of life

an apreciation of the different the maligned the wounded the hopeless the lost the weak the loser the dying
