Fay Slimm





Shaking a fist at what wishes to harm,
calmly facing
her troubled fears of alarm 
Love appeals
heart-deep when a drama 
which threatens to flood her with tears 
and nets a spirited army.


To rise erect when insulted pride falls,
determined at
starting all over again,
Love brushes
away any secret pain
of clutched-too-tight humiliation
no blame at anyone's door.


Such traits shown frees a resolute 
action that,
reflecting widening minds,
may tackle
hurt at root level with selfless 
by a "ce-la-vie" humour.


Learning to laugh not at but with

differing views 

Love finds the way to beauty
and peace
lies in accepting the need to prove
life makes sense
if room is allowed for free spirit.
