My Lost Pearl - Poem by John Hazon Palen

Things went wrong as they sometimes will,
___Though my own path turned not uphill.
When life's twists and turns make you dropp tears,
___Rest if you must; but be still a pearl.

Sturdy as a pyramid, you were all your life.
___In years' darkest nights, you used to shine so bright.
But now you're held down, stuck deep in some man.
___Whom you shared vows with is afraid of your light.

Ghost-like you're pacing down the road less traveled by..
___Trembling while wishing you never met the guy.
He keeps you in the dark; you can't help but sigh,
___Lost is the girl I knew like Joan of Arc inside.

You'd married the night; his tests you can't ace,
___it kills me seeing you - the price I pay.
The sharp knife of our short lives, I must say;
___Should've told you my love back on those days.

Know there's way out through this wildermess dreary.
___You're string of lights are still bright to me.
Don't be a shell of yourself, and you'll see..
___You can still go on, could be like the Liberty.
