A Distant Light

Updated on November 15, 2014

Still Shining Bright

Almost forgotten

When we feel everything

Wondering if what we do is in vain

Losing energy and hope

Depression lurking in the back of our minds

We are left trying to comprehend

Doing all we can

To wrap our head around

Any possible solution

That makes sense

Ignorant to the facts

Relentless in our pursuit

We have been knocked around and beaten

Not only physically


Mentally left crushed by desires of a foreign land


As we can not trace the lines

Before so certain now with a wavering hand

I close my eyes again

What do I see ?


Cold as the ocean or could it be the deep dark blue sea

Shivers go down my spine like porcupines


So lethal and deadly

Like lifting a new razor gently trying to avoid one wrong move

Watching others as they go blindly

Walking without conviction or care

I want to be anywhere but here

      Michael-Milec To experience the good and the not so good. Putting life in proper perspective. Concentrating on what we can do not what we can't. Thank you for your valuable comments.

      My first comment has disappeared and still it isn't the end of the world when we can remember better days and count the blessings at the time of no escape moments. How much stronger and wiser we are becoming after each overcoming. You are doing very fine my friend , very fine.

      Up and interesting.

      vocalcoach Some days go so well and other days seem like an endless toothache that won't go away. Nothing we do makes it feel any better. Luckily for us there are many more days of magnificent endless fun that make us forget all the troubles we have seen. So begin again making this day incredible in every way. Thank you so much for your all your comments. You make me smile and laugh and get so excited. I want to keep writing till my fingers can't type anymore. I have no words that can tell you what this means to me. I am happy you enjoy my work. I hope your day is just marvelous. Then you can experience my thoughts and feelings.

      I don't want to be there either. But I'm glad I'm here this morning reading another fantastic poem of yours. What talent!
