Poems and Poetry: Look Life Square In The Eye

Look Life Square In The Eye

I’d always looked life square

In the eyes and taken the heat


Instinctively I knew that you

Were afraid

I felt your fear, tasted it on

My tongue

Smelled in the air around you

It was as if it were my fear too

When you are weighed down by fear

You’re like someone chewing with

A sore teeth or someone trying

To run with a broken foot

Your new problems and new crises

New solutions need

And your heart will be full of budding

Hope and resurrected dreams

Renewed hope follows renewed effort.
