Fay Slimm.





Descent to despair can reach 
darkest of worlds
but as shadow's mood leaves
a new urge unfurls.

Awakens Self-stirrings tied
to anticipation,
beckons a sense held inside     
hurtful failures
and as mind feels re-action    
comes the conversion.

Intent to move on attracts
lasting reversal,
shows rabid despair change
guilty depression,
grows then new motivation

to forgive and forget.

    You are so right. This is something which cannot be taught but rather has to be learned.
    Learning too to reflect upon the positives of the past rather than dwell upon the negatives can transform how one feels about ones life existence and self worth.

    A wholesome message conveyed in your poem today.
