Take Flight – A poem

When clouds block the sun,

yet bring no rain.

When you toil for hours,

without any gain.

When you take all the medication,

yet still feel the pain.

That is the disappointment I feel.

Bone Deep.

Stones Weep.

Can’t Sleep.


Life has exacted its toll,

yet not let me travel on,

into the sun-drenched uplands

where I belong.

Where the air is clean and bright.

No dark despair,

No Eternal night.


That is my goal, to stretch,

to reach beyond my current plight.

To spread my wings.

Take Flight.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
