Life's Curveball

Sometimes life throws you curve balls
to test your courage under fire
bringing you to your limits
by breaking your will and spirit
baraging you with life altering thoughts
to usher a new era into your life
one where new challenges arise from the ashes
testing the waters so a new cycle can begin

One where the pychie is put through it's paces
toeing the line of obscurity and infamy
bringing about a sense of false security
then when you aren't looking turning around
pulling the wool from over your eyes
revealing the darker side of the light
the one that consumes your pravailent thoughts
taking up residence in your blood stream

Pumping doubts and anxiety into your heart
forcing you down when all you want is love
a self assuring blanket of soothing carasses
washing over your soul in a wave of warmth
lifting up your spirits when downcast and low
helping you through the rough patches in life
building up your confidence brick by brick
reviving your resolve so you can move on in stride

Hi The Shadow in Blue,

Nice to see another poem by you in here!

I'm not quite sure what to think of this one, it's harder for me to discern my thoughts on it. I liked it but I'm not sure if I liked it as much as some of your others. It is hard to decide, I will have to re-read it again as soon as I finish posting this...

"Sometimes life throws you curve balls
to test your courage under fire
bringing you to your limits
by breaking your will and spirit"


My favorite part^^ Sometimes it seems that life does test you by breaking you, it seems cruel when you read it, yet, it makes you better? At least sometimes it does...

Great job with this one, it's a lot to think about at the moment but I believe it'll be worth the effort in the end.

Thanks for sharing!

"I pray thee, O God, that I
may be beautiful within."
–Socrates

Why thanks for the reply Stargal *cheesy smile*

All right I feel like I have to explain this poem because let's just say when I wrote it...well...I wasn't in the best of moods...Actually, truthfully I was emotionally spent. *gangster Italian accent (like in Scarface)* I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

Anyway, I hope to read some of your new stuff soon Stargal.

^_^
