Despite turbulence 

It’s turbulent out there today 

The wind throws things around like it’s angry 

Or maybe just unsure of what to do 

People struggling to keep their feet fight back 

Determined to beat this force of nature 

Howling back at them to bend to its will 

Maybe it’s exactly like me 

Turbulence caused by confusion 

Frustrated by circumstances it cannot control 

Angry at times that it’s ignored the small things 

Determined now that this small world will work 

Despite, despite , despite.

I have written since I can remember, devouring the stories of Roald Dahl under the covers by torchlight. I have always loved fairy tales, myths and magic. A good deal of the things I write has some truth in it. Others, not. I’m pleased you dropped by, please feel free to leave me a comment or if you’re kind enough to share that’s fine. ☺️
