By Ruth Cole

it isn’t a treadmill
it isn’t a storm
it isn’t a stroll

it’s like weather

it is different everyday
it is intense
it is beautiful
it brings life
it changes everyday, but everyday it is there

just like the weather

there is darkness and there is light
sometimes you get through with the faith that it will be better tomorrow
sometimes you doubt if there is anyway tomorrow could ever beat today
and no matter how much darkness there is, you know the light will come

even though we will never grasp it
control it
plan it out
It is how we are able to grow and continue waking up every morning
