Despair

Updated: Aug 17

My despair

cannot ride for long

the moving crest of the wave

in the moonlight,

but is crashed below

and churned about

until it rises again as Courage

glistening in the sunlight.


As the sun and moon

dance together in the sky,

as the sea and sand

sing boisterously,

as the mind and heart

struggle for unity,

so does Courage

journey with Despair,

pulling and pushing

to define its strength,

to know its power,

then to yield all,

willingly,

to flow again as Faith.
