Clotho's Loom

Sometimes life washes our eyes with the acids of adversity.
But disasters seldom destroy us; their challenges
steel our explorations.
Strengths of character gleaned during early
years are manifest when the flames of misfortune sear.

Stay the course and the greater world throws itself
behind our will —redeems and reinforces it.
With the virtues of patience and fortitude
we overcome the adversities spun by Clotho's loom.

From the light of our deepest self, the shelter of the soul,
we find an ultimate peace, a majestic understanding.
Prayer and meditation
help our passage to grow resilient, self-reliant.
By surviving despair, we keep appointments with destiny.
