THE TURBULENCE



At will comes the turbulence
Which in pieces twists and tears our peace
Though by hills and mountains resisted
Our world it makes its throne
And our pride its footstool
Yes, he that is of a woman born
Is of few days full of turbulent years
Howbeit, what with the turbulence we do
Becomes our footprint in the sands of time.

About this poem

This poem is a reflection of the troubles that come uninvited in our lives and how we are supposed to understand the turbulence and see it as an opportunity rather than seeing it as a problem.
