On the Horizon – Poetry Prompt 25

Sounds are still,
There’s no one around,
Or mayhap they’re tired of the bill?
Reaching out with soundless arms,
My eyes watch as the clouds approach.

It was almost too quiet, but real life didn’t come with background music.

I wonder often how it will all turn out.
So I must continue on without a doubt.

When you make a decision, for better or worse, it was still yours to make.

Can I withstand what will come about?
Oh, I shan’t sit with a moment of doubt!
My faith is given and trust as well,
I know that for some this is a farewell.
No, I must face this head on, and know that
Going through with my life while still at bat.

Written partially for how my life seems to be going at the moment and partially for Pooky’s prompt: http://pookypoetry.wordpress.com/2014/05/25/poetry-prompt-25-extended-metaphor/

Life Moves Fast!

Most of the house is still packed from before
Only a few things left to do, although it seems like more…
Veracity of the previous statement is under suspicion.
I would really like this to be done and over with.
Never certain just when it will come, yet we’re
Going to get ready regardless.
It’s all about the timing.
Don’t give up even though it looks bleak.
Always remember that He hasn’t let you down before.
Yokes include another pulling with you!
“For my burden is easy and my yoke is light.”
Coming on up to crunch time, I’m ready!
Only a little bit of patience to be put to the test.
Me? I’m trying to do what I can.
Inside I try not to shake too badly;
Not going to let the fear and doubt in!
Got my family all around me to see this through!

Also because we’ve been getting ready for a big change! Life in my family takes a long while to build up to something before it moves really fast!
