Its 7:30 and there’s no Sun
It’s raining so I couldn’t go for my run.
It’s been raining all night
telling me its monsoon time all-right.
The lightening & thundering has me scared
And I am sleeping in fright under my bed.
I ask God to take it away
And he reminds me that it’s not the month of May.
Please I say, I am scared of thunder & lightening
The thunderous sound has me freighting.
God smiled and said,
Come out from under the bed.
It needs to rain as per plan
Just breathe and you will be fine in ten.
Just then the dark sky is lit up with light followed by a clap of thunder.
My heart flutters and I creep back under.
God, I say is this your way of a joke
I am scared and you mock and poke.
God says, no child, be brave and trust me
This thunder & lightening by morning will flee.
I sleep not throughout the night
And wait for the first ray of light.
I am welcomed by the monsoon sights
I am relieved that I lived through the night,
God says, child, life is a roller coaster ride
Yes I say, and many times I have cried.
He smiles, it’s filled with peaks & valleys
You will experience rainy & sunny days.
As you live your life, I will show you different ways.
If you endure the rains you will be able to enjoy the sun
And then you can go for your run.
So it is with life, if you endure the rains and pains
You will reap the joy & gains
Sometimes life pushes us to a wall,
Just remember it’s not the end of it all.
You will be relieved that you lived through the night
And with the first ray of light comes the sun
And I can now go for my Run.
