Mood swings - are common to us all;
The weather changes like my mood
As I contemplate life at noon.
I wonder if the rain today
Has a message plain & true.
For when the sky is grey & black
And the wind is beating back
I wonder if the pain I sense
Is mere human circumstance?
Now the sunshine maybe a clue.
Behind every cloud of doubt
There’s a ray of sunlight hiding out.
That’s the same with moods,
I need to sort truth from fiction
Before I continue with my direction.
Consequences of my thoughts
Will mean more or nought
To my living richly or poorly
Today & tomorrow. For surely
Everything depends upon
My mood swing – now & the future!
Found poem written on a showery Sunday, 10 May 2009 no glues as to why I wrote it.
A revisit to edit for posting to website – on this wet, windy Monday 3 August 2015
