After the Rain

[A poem about storms, trials, dark tunnels, waiting, sorrow, and being strengthened.]

by: Delana H. Stewartstorm clouds, dark sky, storm brewing, dark storm, stormy day, stormy night, desert storm

The rain comes down and passes on;

Life grows greener when it’s gone.

Though the storms seem often long,

Keep on walking—life goes on.

Trials and tribulation!tunnel, dark tunnel, long tunnel, long dark tunnel, painful journey, 9/11 tunnel, tunnel of pain, darkness, hopelessness, Turkey, Ephesus

Burdens and frustration!

A very dark tunnel, that doesn’t seem to end.

However long the wait,

However dark the way,

After the storms are gone, flowers bloom again.

The rain comes down and passes on;

Life grows greener when it’s gone.

Though the storms seem often long,

Keep on searching—life goes on.

tunnel of light, light at end of tunnel, hope, tunnel of hope, end of tunnel, God is light, Turkey, Ephesus

Trials make us strong.

Burdens become songs.

God is the light at the tunnel’s end.

Find His peace throughout the wait.

Reach His hand along the way.

God creates flowers through storms’ strong wind.

The rain comes down and passes on;

Life grows greener when it’s gone.

Though the storms seem often long,

My God strengthens—so hang on.
