As the world turns

by Dinah Olina

As the world turns
Life's metamorphosis seems arduous to embrace
When it ensnares me unprepared
And acquiescence is all I could muster

As the world is turning
A dreadful emotion of solitude overcomes me
As I gaze at the lines and ridges of my countenance
Wondering if the hands of time turned hastily

As the world takes another turn
A revived hope flourished in me
Optimism proliferates as I welcome
what life bestows upon me

Beauty of an innocuous soul is perceived
Fortitude which sprouts from pain is gained
Tolerance for injustices is acquired
Wisdom from failures is reaped

A tinge of light in darkness becomes apparent
Shades and hues of understanding become vivid
Love predominates in all of life's abstraction
And the world turns into a better place.
