Cries From The Wilderness - Poem by Cecelia Weir

Cries From the Wilderness
Indicates despair.
Someone wants to be a hero
But who will take the dare.

To go into the widerness
Not knowing what is there.
Only implies your courage
And it shows how much you care.

Inside cries can scare you
Shadows are frightening too.
But keep the goal in mind
You're trying to get to you.

Crawl between the trenches
Hide behind the trees.
Do what it takes to make it
Or you will surely grieve.

Within lifes confusion
Theres hope among pain.
Yet the most important reality
Yourself is what you gain.
