    drawing strength from a starr...

    in a world so dark and full of pain
    and every reason to be insane
    within the darkness shining bright
    without a reason to see the light


    seeing the world as a better place
    spreading love with a warm embrace
    while fighting demons and kicking ghost
    a vison that is lost on most


    a simple thought for all to think
    a simple vison for us to see
    an inspiration for all of whom
    fight the dark, the dread and doom


    when the universe turns and the power shifts
    and this life has taken all there is
    with a hug to give and an ear to lend
    a special person i call my friend


    a connection felt into the soul
    a forgotten place i use to know
    where my smile has gone to try to hide
    you look in me and see my light


    you make me see that i can be
    full of love AND misery
    that its ok to feel the pain
    and sometimes fine to be insane


    my gratitude i send to you
    for being here to help me through
    knowing you don't want the praise
    it's offered to you all the same

    Frienship holds a lantern to illume the path of hardship, and guides to hope. I have enjoyed this expressive quicked paced sprint of emotion.. Great images and rhythm. I also enjoy a poem that lends some resolve. (not that life is always that way, but in poetry, hope is an essential for the hurting to find solace in) like the psalms of David and Asaph: Dark, but ending with reward of hope Thanks for sharing!

    such a heartfelt write... the best friends are the ones who are there when we need them most...

    Poetry is what is lost in translation.
