Power Source

Every morning and evening I see a sunflower,
Turn its head towards its fount of power.
Like a flower, we too, need a force,
To run to or turn to for our life source.

It can be- a higher power, a person, a place or anything,
That can bring back the bing.
When life gets overwhelming,
We need some soothing and calming.

Since dives and drops -big and small,
Are not all easy to independently haul,
Support and shoulder is essential for all,
To help us rise from life's plunges and fall(s).

With time we realize who’s on our side,
Or who’s suggestions we can abide,
There are few with whom our heart can truly stride,
Finding a soul to share concerns with, is no easy ride.

Seek solace in faith, family, friends or book,
Dance, music, songs or a special nook,
Identify and nurture one or more ways,
That can still and soothe when nerves run astray.
