Tradewinds
by Sheila Marie

We sit with bated breath- our futures holding
Hands held tight in deep composing

Searching for the answers to
Answers that we wish we knew

A sure path way to reach the stars
No such thing, only come to find
May as well be the long road to mars
Sending us further and farther behind

But against the winds we try to seek
That of which seems out of reach

Knowing it could be coming next
And hoping it holds the very best.

Learning always from what is done
Guided along by rays of light
To better ready for whats yet to come-
Bringing clouded views to perfect sight

And all the time spent will be worthwhile
And all the dues paid on the extra mile
Will prove to be more than timeless haste
Because in truth, that’s never really the case

We can brush off all the used to be’s
Climbing mountains taller than the trees-

Taking chances on whats in store
While leaving behind what is no more

The real journey has only just begun
But until then, in faith, we’ve already won

Still we wait and hope and wish and pray
Because somewhere we know will come the day
When the roots can let go and finally cave
And we’ll be left no more to wander astray

Every storm will come and pass
Just as every wind is not meant to last

And If you question when, all I have to say
Is someday came will be our day

It’ll be the day we dance and scream and laugh in praise
Because the tradewinds finally blew our way~

  1. “When the roots can let go and finally cave

    Your thoughts, through these words are maturing quickly.
    I read over and over…..each line, amazed as this ongoing story
    quietly develops, as you do.
