RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
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.
