We walk alone,

Year after year.

Troubles weigh us down,

No end in sight.

Our loads become heavy,

Our bodies weary.

Frowns on our faces,

Eyes to the sky above,

We ask for salvation.

No answer for our ears.

Hope lingers in our souls,

A hope for better days.

If not in this lifetime,

then maybe in the next.

        Thanks!!! I’m blushing. I wish I can receive praise like that about my book. With poetry, you can reveal your feelings easier. Now, flowery words and thoughts are frowned upon on books. Everything is about action. Maybe I’ll stick with poetry and hone it into a craft.
