Poetry from Joan Beebe


There are so many times in one’s life

When we quietly murmur “Why Me?

Complications, frustrations and worry

Seem to take over our lives and

Depression sets in.

We must remember that we are not alone

In how we feel.

The world today is full of negative images and writing.

How much more do we need to take hold of our own

Self in a determination to bring thoughts that are positive.

We are thankful for the gifts we have been given

And take in the beauty that surrounds us in nature.

Healing does not take place overnight but as we

Take one day at a time and look at a beautiful sunset  or

Perhaps an aura of a rainbow stretching across the sky,

We look to our future with strength of mind and the knowledge

That there will be brighter days ahead.
