Those Moments

The ones that try to steal the magic.

The ones that try to steal the joy.

Those moments where the madness tries to sink it’s teeth into me.

I don’t want those moments, any more than others do.

I just want the peace and love. The quiet soothing, too.

Yet those moments exist for what it’s worth.

To cultivate gratitude and give new dreams birth.

So I will endure those moments as best as I can.

Always waiting for them to pass with the lesson I needed to learn.

Upon the passing I can say the day will be all the brighter.

Thank you God for those moments that cause me to lean more towards the light.
