Fay Slimm.





Descent to despair can reach
darkest of worlds
but as shadow's mood leaves
a new urge unfurls,
awakes stirrings of Self, tied
to anticipation,
beckons to sense held inside
hurtful failures
and as mind clears re-action
creates conversion,
shows rabid despair to have
lasting reversal.

    Sometimes we come out on the other side a lot stronger and less vulnerable. A lovely poem depicting the strength gained after conquering the "despair." _ Phil A.

  • Goldfinch60

    Fine words Fay, we need to be aware of what is happening to each of us and have the wisdom to do the right thing for ourselves and others.


  • Neville

    I can find no fault whatsoever with the image & message it conveys .. indeed both it and your ensuing poem read like a pair of universal truths .... x
