I just read a poem 'Drowning' by Sally999...this is to pull her out of the deep sea...

The Strength Within

When in trouble, you feel
You are drowning in deep sea
And lying on the silent seabed
Like a lobster in its shell
Coiled and hidden within,
Feeling you've quite drowned,
And think, who will come
to help me out...?

Do not depend on any one
to come to your rescue!
Look for the strength within
yourself, to pull you out
of the ocean bed.
Resurface and from there
take a flight high into the sky
and soar over the firmament,
Like a curlew in the sky!!

Encouraging words, Zoya. It's good to think of others. blessings usually follow.


It is nice to have friends that can inspire and reasure another, that not all is lost...that there is light at the end of the tunnel...nicely done...JC

there is so much truth in every word you write, dear sister! yes, one must find his/her inner strength to get over life's tests...there is no force, greater than faith in God and in ourselves, that can help us...
