Troubled Times- Searching
By Tony DeLorger © 2011
In the darkest corners of a mind,
lurks realities of life unknown in kind,
un-tethered hopes let unfulfilled,
drifting within a conscience stilled.
Jagged edges of thoughts dismayed,
in background taunting as life’s mistakes,
driven for presence and acknowledged will,
to face the shadows and deal with ills.
Like waves of grief in relentless strike,
circumstances marred and pursued dislike,
the comfort zone drawn from its nest,
into the realm of change behest.
From struggle the pain of redemption will,
the walls of rejection a tempest still,
to rise above and forward move,
transform a soul lost in a groove.
From darkest clouds of impending doom,
does rise the courage of a soul attuned,
to the lies of life we treat ourselves,
as the blinded faith of fancy realms.
To the truth we end our forced delay,
before stagnancy creates decay,
and find the path to wanted ends,
of life’s promise as love transcends.
Change is inevitable.
