Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem several months ago. Honestly, sometimes I really want to run away and change my life and my scene. Perhaps that is not the answer.

I attempted to utilize personification in this poem with the sunset, giving the sunset the feminine voice and qualities. I tapped into heartfelt emotion and also personified Discouragement, Faith, etcetera (inspired from the book, The Dream Giver) .

    Oh my God! How are you so inside my head and heart? You met 'Him didn't you. I know i did, because before i only had a desperate kind of hopeful faith...now even though things are not any better, I am unable to say i don't believe...actually, i don't just believe any more...I KNOW! And what is waiting for us to return is more than any single person has ever imagined possible, so much more, that our frail human form could not bear His full measure of unconditional love for us all. Those that harm as well as those wrongly harmed. (Report)Reply
