Relying On Self


Relying on self to gather courage and strength
for the remainder of life.
Never knowing from one moment to another whether
I will be able to get through.
The better part of life is a saddened plight of
suffering with a ray of sunshine once in a while.
This is all I can see as I look from within,
contemplating the juxtaposition of my soul to reality.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
