IN THE VALLEYS

No life is like a level road
with Heaven as its farthest goal. . .
but valleys deep and mountains high
that test your patience and your soul.

The valleys are your days of gray
when plans all seem to go awry . . .
but valleys we must always have
or else there'd be no mountains high.

So in your valleys, patience have
be like the heart within your breast . . .
note how it very strongly beats
then wisely stops a beat. . . to rest!

  3. Morning Margie,

    I can't but think, what if you were raised on the plains, and never saw a peak or a valley?

    To me, your poem is about the emotions and struggles of life. The internal landscape of the soul.

    Have a great day. :)

  7. Hi Margie,

    I really like the premise of your poem. My personality is like peaks and valleys, but without the gray valleys, I wouldn't appreciate the mountains!


    Take care Margie,
    Robyn

  10. Alas, in the valleys flow the deepest waters and grow the tallest trees. From a mountain top one can appreciate the majesty of mountain tops but in a valley one can appreciate the majesty of life...
