I Hope Your Troubles Don’t Hurricane Your Life

I hope your troubles

Don’t hurricane your life

I hope extreme emotional turbulence

Doesn’t undo you.

I hope you overcome

The hurricanes of life

And they don’t define you

Or make you bitter and twisted

Or frighten you

Or unkind you

And make you indifferent

Uncaring

Or apathetic

But as with most things

Hurricanes disperse

I hope your hurricanes

Drift along

Expend energy harmlessly

Into the ocean

And melt off into the mist

Where they can do no harm to no-one

Especially yourself.

Watch it go.

  1. Is there something wrong with hurricanes?

    I think Bob Dylan and Swami Vivekananda would beg to differ.

    The stars are blotted out,
    The clouds are covering clouds,
    It is darkness vibrant, sonant.
    In the roaring, whirling wind
    Are the souls of a million lunatics
    Just loose from the prison-house,
    Wrenching trees by the roots,
    Sweeping all from the path.
    The sea has joined the fray,
    And swirls up mountain-waves,
    To reach the pitchy sky.
    The flash of lurid light
    Reveals on every side
    A thousand, thousand shades
    Of Death begrimed and black —
    Scattering plagues and sorrows,
    Dancing mad with joy,
    Come, Mother, come!
    For Terror is Thy name,
    Death is in Thy breath,
    And every shaking step
    Destroys a world for e’er.
    Thou “Time”, the All-Destroyer!
    Come, O Mother, come!
    Who dares misery love,
    And hug the form of Death,
    Dance in Destruction’s dance,
    To him the Mother comes.

    – ‘Kali the Mother’ by Swami Vivekananda

  2. Thank you for sharing!!… “I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.” ( Louisa May Alcott)… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May flowers always line your path
    and sunshine light your way,
    May songbirds serenade your
    every step along the way,
    May a rainbow run beside you
    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.
    (Irish Saying)
