Her life is clinging to unrealistic thoughts

She has settled for pebbles and stones

Gold glitters before her, but unseen

Precious parts taken away, left behind

Slowly being swallowed up, shipwreck imminent

    Thanks for the comment. Wrote this poem in a few minutes as an assignment for a poetry class at our local library. Sometimes the words come quite quickly. Poem written about a friend who was at the time slipping deeper into her addiction. Since then she has made a change in direction and is in recovery. Amazing Grace. Thanks again, Allen
