Sustain

All Poetry Sustain

Your darkness seeps into everything
Crawls into my consciousness and stings
Deflates my bright and shiny red balloon
I fall into the mold you’ve set too soon

Each day the sun shines in its glory
I try to write a fresh, new story
But like a cloud spilling out salty tears
That light is occluded by your fears

Like the sun, I continue to rise
Bursting through the hatred and the lies
Even when the darkness shrouds my own space
I will shine and of your clouds leave no trace

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
