The Void


I search for the bright light of truth.

Seeking for those places of green.

Through the years, starting in my youth.

So many spaces in between.


When I feel shrouded in darkness.

When all is covered and unseen.

Rise, in answer to the brightness.

So many spaces in between.


I’m like the flower through the boards.

Bloom with just a drop of serene.

Away from the masses and hoards.

So many spaces in between.

“The Void”




Published by: writersdream9

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.
