Those moments when the reason to live seems threadbare, when I want to give up... true feelings, but not truth.
A world shaded grey, yawning gulf
From my heart to past desires..
Emptiness fills my heart and mind
That once burned so bright – now in ash
Cold piled black and grey, dead embers
Lie, scattered; broken hopes, dreams…
Years past, my life driven with desire,
And I thought “Nothing is impossible’,
All that could be reached, achieved;
All the wishes of my life
Will be grasped, lived, enjoyed…
Then something in me died, fire
Died down, and embered glow
Went black, dim, cold, ending
The grasping for desire, and
The hope of grace………..
