From within the darkness, came light. A thankyou to my family. - 27th November 2010.


A new chance.

An ordeal for nothing real,
For there is no one.
Words split before I'm hit,
And still remains undone.
The agony of which I plea,
Keeps to itself.
A demand to harm,
Or boldly disarm,
Is a question of my health.
A part time climb,
To become sublime,
Is surely here to stay.
The lonely nights,
Are now forever bright,
And will keep me
From walking away.

Take off the old and put on the new. It's over; the past that is for I too have hung from a many of clifft only to saved by a force and power so much greater than one could ever imagine.

Perfect display of talent with a calling! Very well expressed, heart touching and profound. Thought provoking too and may your times of inner peace be heavenly.

Love received and given . . . climbing out of the depths "to become sublime". Very inspiring.

Quite an emotionally gripping, this poem...
something that cannot be conjured without having experienced. It speaks from the soul.

Thanks for sharing
I liked the lines
"The lonely nights,
Are now forever bright"
Stay in the light
but sleep in the night : )
