In death, lost love, and at other times, we can go so introvert that we weave a cocoon of isolation that we need to Temper The Steel sword to slash our way out of it.

Temper The Steel


The tears are just too real,

Flowing so, so deep reigning hurt.

One quakes in sobbing emotions

That hurt heaves a broken heart.


The dagger of reality penetrates,

Wherein words do fail to express,

Those feelings being so distraught,

Twisted taunt asunder distressed woe.


Bemoan deep down those depressions

Upon wrath’s sword bearing pure rejection.

Wherein one weaves alone a cocoon cell,

Layers being isolated from the whole world.


Alas the pyre will of those departing Angels,

Does rain down optimism upon loved ones

To temper the steel with true grit strength

That elevates them forward with Phoenix wings.


Death does temper the steel inside the soul

That as loved ones depart in true grit strength,

We celebrate their life sharing past memories

To move us forward with new Guardian Angels.


Angel, I do love you so,

And for ever and forever,

You will be inside my heart


Temper The Steel.


PS. The title came from a post by Janet Brennan.
