{battle Of Will} - Poem by Lillian Jamison

Overcome with sadness
A melancholic aura surrounds
Spirit seeking to shroud from darkness

Justifiable lament sets in
Heart sobbing in sorrow
In search of an end to discontent

Strength must prevail
Like a beacon of light
Over darkened waters

Or perhaps a new day dawning
At the oceanside
And all at once becomes brilliant

    Hi Lillian! Every day's a new day and some
    they will be blue; you are so right!
    But that will change and rearrange; things
    will turn out bright!
    Your happiness it will prevail, bringing to
    you much delight!
