New Age Poetry - Poem by Joseph Anderson

Gloom and despair, dark agony-
Tis sad, so sad, but this we see,
In to much new age poetry.

The poems we write should touch, inspire,
Should fill the needs our hearts desire
And light our better natures fire.

We all should search and seek the light,
Not wallow in some woeful plight;
'Twold lighten up the darkest night.

From womb to tomb, for all the same
But, in between becomes our game
And if we fail, whom should we blame?

Hoping for more inspirational writing

    Gloom and despair, dark agony sometimes if we are lucky to change it into poetry painting music or any kind of beauty could be a greatest therapy, then yes would lighten up the darkest night. (Report) Reply

    TOTALLY agree with the content of this poem.
    So well written,
    So true.
    If we write poems that make people feel gloomy, what is the use?
