Biography of Miriam Carreon

Miriam Carreon is perpetually joyful. That is because 1. she chooses to be; 2. She is backed (and fronted, sided, etc) by a powerful, wonderful, faithful God.

She wishes that you enjoy her poems, because it is a translation of the essence of her many experiences; a rendering of the abstractions of emotions that would otherwise just lay faded and forgotten, to be blown away by time. In as much as words can serve her, she has written them down, with the hope that, as concrete blocks of vowels, consonants and syllables, they could somehow find their way back into their normal state of emotions but this time transferred from her into the heart of the reader.

She prays that whoever reads this, is well.

Cling

Why do I
Cling
To sorrow
When I am in fact
Confronted by joy?
Is it because
Sorrow is
The last remnant I have
Of him?
Of our love?
That to completely be happy,
Is to completely forget?
My heart refuses
To let go
This soon
And would rather
In sadness
Dwell.
