Diverting the Course

We all have memories we’d rather simply erase
Memories we’d rather just replace
With those of a little rosier shade
Yet we are refined by the times
That may indeed trouble our mind

Times that challenges us to be
A person who loves
Who hopes and builds and trusts
Even when others do not act from above

But rather act in ways that must
Drive us to divert our course
So we may stay true to love’s power
And not another’s blind force

Times that remind us
To pause and to see
The beauty of the velvety night sky
That silences any lingering whys

For it is these times where we find
Our own inner strength and resilience
We may never have found
If we were not tested with the experience
That brought us down to ground
