A Look Within (inspirational poetry)
At times in our lives, the whole world seems all dark...
Every avenue, we may take, to be so dull, so stark.
No matter how much we do, or how hard we try...
The happier times, all seem to pass us by.
These are the days...we must reach within us,
Hold on to life, in every shred of its fond length,
There are powers inside...greater hope, to reside,
Our finest of determination, our true strength.
Despite our every move, its best attempt...
Seems this fails in misery, and is exempt.
Tomorrow seems a hundred miles away,
No matter what we try, or even to say.
Those times...the ones, our wills are tried,
Real guts, to ply, pulled from deep inside.
Always in our hearts, beyond our pride...
A message held there and sent, to be applied.
Sometimes we feel there's nothing left...
Strength is gone, as by some evil theft.
Everything we may try or to apply...results in failure,
Then for this challenge, we're not so deft.
Within each human heart, a spirit, is so bold...
All that's right and good, does extol.
There's nothing on this earth, for us to hold...
Beyond the firmest grips of our own soul.
