A Shadowy Shroud

Updated on February 04, 2014

Tell me, what do I do when even what I feel is wrong

When in everything I do there is some kind of fault

What to do when I start to question my own sanity

How did it even come to this, is it just me?

Oh I know that these feelings surely will not last

Because, as the saying goes, this too shall pass

Still, my disillusionment hangs like a shadowy shroud

And still I remain unbowed

      This is sort of what brings me on a almost midnight commenting because I feel this shroud and must have been drawn to a shroud. A great piece shanmarie.

      Great poem. Really!

      This is one of the things as human's we must experience.

      For some: once in a life time and others their entire life.

      But as long as long as we are living there is always a better place ahead.

      TRUST ME ! This is truth for eternity.......

      Intersting poem. I think everyone experiences that shroud at times.

      Hi, Jodah. Perhaps it is universal. It certainly isn't limited to one.

      Aw, Leslie, don't ever break even when you bend. I've just thought of a Rascal Flatts song that I might go back and add to the hub. The only thing I don't like about the song is the line "you might bend till you break" because I don't think one has to break before standing back up. In fact, I think it's even harder to stand if one becomes all the way broken.

      This is sad and heartfelt! But you are right, it will pass, and the sun will shine again to lift the shroud.

      Hi, Ruby! So glad to see you! It's been awhile. I'm glad you liked the title. I was trying to find words to describe a shroud that isn't as heavy as one might think a literal shroud might be, heavy in the sense of what it implies anyway.

      Sad poem. It could be called "Ode To the Death Of A Relationship." I hope that's not the case. Been there and made it through. You will too.

      Oh, yes, FlourishAnyway. I have been there before, too. Were that the case now, I am most certain that life would go on and something new would come along. I don't necessarily think that the trials come harder and faster as we age, but that people tend to become discouraged by them more easily.

      Thank you for reading. I appreciate your visit and taking the time to comment. :)
