On The Other Side Of Despair


ON THE OTHER SIDE OF DESPAIR

On the other side of despair
When the worst has gone
For this time
Life begins to smile at me slightly again-
An old friend

    Incredibly true, very deep poem! ... Despair may bring the will to smile again even if slightly. Life naturally, will try to fight its way into our souls again. If we get on the other side of despair we may make it for full smiles. Love this poem, thank you for share. (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
