Without Fail


Poem Commentary

Today I was feeling a little down and perhaps overwhelmed by life's uncontrollable's - then a good friend helped me put things into perspective, while a stranger ironically showed me that life can change in an instant and that we should be grateful for what we have.

Without Fail

When the world is dropping out from underneath me
And the sky is falling down on top of me

I don't fight the wind; still I won’t give in
There is something within me that helps me withstand the storms

I am weak alone, sensitively fragile
I always want to know the reason but often lack the understanding

Regardless of the source of sorrow and pain
Strength always finds me in the form of friends and family

I can't give up, though at times it would be an easy thing to do
For the thoughts and prayers of loved ones always helps me 


Without fail; I never fail to be reminded of all that I have!

It is always a warm feeling of worth for one's writing when hearing that the reader truly feels the emotion intended.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
