Do Not Cloud Your Mind With Sorrow

You must repair from love
You must repair from loss, from death
You need to breathe
To take a breath
The pain of losing is so hard to bare
In death, in love, only time can repair
You need to know that you will heal
You have to know that life, turns like a wheel
A wheel of fortune until tables are turned
Fortune now lost, lessons now learnt
These Life's lessons cause pain
But you must, get out, get out in the rain
Each drop, each tear, each rainy day
Is a step closer to repairing, there is a way
The wheel of life will take many a different turn and you have to survive
Rebuild life
Find who you are and what you are able to do
The wheel of life will turn again for you
So Do Not Cloud Your Mind With Sorrow
There will be... A new tomorrow

    Beautiful Lyn, very good and wise advice. We all experience sorrow in life, but life goes on and time heals - mostly. (Report) Reply

    Very well said, ultimately the sorrows & pains does not beget any thing in return excepting drowning the body & mind in a fearful abyss. Lyn you gave a nice guide line. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
