When There Is Only Despair


WHEN THERE IS ONLY DESPAIR

When there is only despair
When every thought is a pessimistic one
When one can see no light anywhere
When one is shrunken down inside
And frightened
And without any possible way out
When this is what there is
And nothing else
Not everyone can delude themselves
And think
Writing a few lines about this
May help.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
