Pain And Despair. A Poem.
I wrote this poem yesterday when I had been feeling awful,
for several days. Luckily someone special logged in and
I was so happy I felt much better.
Pain and Despair.
The wolves are howling at my door
They're trying to get in,
They howl and snap at my defense
It's such a frightful din.
They seek the flaws in my defense
They sense the weakness there,
They snap and snarl and salivate
They'd feed on my despair.
My body brought them from afar
It's pain gave me away,
I fight them through the long dark night
Until the light of day.
This time I'll call out to my friends
I know they will respond,
To help me through the dark and pain
Into the light beyond.
Is it the pain that brings despair
Or does despair bring pain,
whichever is the catalyst
I'm fighting both again.
This broken fr
Are fighting to hold out,
Against the wolves so soon returned
The outcome is in doubt.
