When the hits keep coming
How do I keep upright
When all I want is to lay down?
How do I win
When all is against me?
How do I learn to love
When my heart is shattered?
My faith is hanging by a thread,
Fingers bloody and torn.
It would be easy to let go,
Fall into darkness
Let despair swallow me whole.
Light extinguished for all time.
Remember you are not alone.
There are those who have suffered
Felt the despair
Learn what time has taught them.
Learn life goes on
Though it feels like the end.
Learn that when faith seems shattered
It is only around the bend,
Waiting for you to reclaim.
And most of all
You are not alone

Like this one very much, it´s up lifting and well written. You made my day, I needed some lifting up today. So I´m not alone. Good things you have on your blog. Nice Kelly stopped by my blog or otherwise I wouldn´t be reading all these new things.
By the way the Friday writing prompts are quite cool and useful.
I’m glad you found us.hope to see you next week. A friend of mine was having a really hard week and I wanted him to know he wasn’t alone. This poem is a result of that. I’m happy out helped you too. 🙂
Unfortunately next week I´ll be spending christmas time with my uncle at the hospital, so I´ll be in a writing hiatus for some time. But hope you guys don´t forget me when I´m back. I´ll be back, as Mr. Arnie would say.
Take a notebook with you. you never know and it might help to get some of that stress out on paper. I know out helps me.
I´ll try to see if we have some little time to get back on line a read you guys.
But I still have all day today! to write my things and then read you great writers.
