William Jackson

(San Antonio, Texas)

Sorrow makes honey taste sweeter still.

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

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
