The Morning Light Is Outside/ The Morning Sorrow Within - Poem by Shalom Freedman

The morning light is outside
The morning sorrow within
Which will overcome today
I don't know
I try to be in the light
But the sorrow at times is overwhelming
How can I make the sorrow the light?
I can't
The sorrow itself must
And sometimes it does
Often it does
Later in the day.

    (The Morning Light Is Outside/ The Morning Sorrow Within - Poem by Shalom Freedman.) Sort of a paradox. Far better it were to have the light within and the sorrow without. Enjoyed your poem. Thanks. (Report)Reply
