Sorrow Makes Honey Taste Sweeter Still. - Poem by William Jackson

Having fallen,
Having failed miserably,
Having lost my bearings,
Having had my spirit broken,
Having been entirely too human,
Having lost my mind but found it again,
I don't know quite what to think of life
except that I still feel deeply and appreciate
that sorrow makes honey taste sweeter still.

    A powerful piece, from strength to strength. It is only by seeing dark shadows that we can perceive the light. Take care. - Will (Report) Reply
