In The Ashes

There is silence in this grief
There is friction in the heart
There's a mountain filled with sorrows
That tears the joys apart.

On this woesome road of life
Kissed by the fumes of pain
When not a shed or an open cover
To shelter from the rain.

But beyond a moment of grind
Is the gleaming light of hope
But its hard to see the rainbow
Beyond the roughest slope.

Woesome seas of anguish
Drifting through the wind
Crashing on the seashores
Of a life ablazed in rend.

    Hi Mustapha, Really liked this one my friend. Such sweet sorrow, yet to know somewhere there must be hope. Why are humans drawn to sorrow so much? A question i shall never find the answer too. Alright, as always your words flow off the page at the reader. You gently take them by the hand and lead them along the piece. Your world is a world alive with emotion my friend. Long may your pen be lead by the light of your soul. Your friend, MIKE.

    I have a big problem. How can I make this comment as good as the last when all of your poems are so good and similar to my rhythmic style and pattern that I would attempt to use. We have so much to learn from each other. Rather than making a bunch of cute comments I would rather tell you how much I enjoy and appreciate each poem that you write. Now if I can only improve my poetry writing as your poetry writing as an example. I live in Bolivia, NC. Where are you from?
