Inner strength empowers

Inner strength empowers

Depressed and devastated life,
Heartbroken, living in deep dark,
Once an ardent lover, now a wife,
Electrifying, has now lost her spark,

Little did she know of his intentions,
Unless summons from court arrived,
Came true all the vivid apprehensions,
Her faith came crashing, lay deprived,

A never thought of life, without him,
Now struggling to untie the knots,
Mental agony had reached its brim,
A firm stand, enough to undo plots,

Awakening of inner strength was all that she had to do,
So strong and confident she would emerge, he had the least clue!

    Very nice write Doc, this is the lot of so many people these days. To keep a marriage going is almost a rarity. There are so many lonely people around because of this...I loved your poem, my friend, and hope it is a winner for you....peter

    Powerfully written and is to be recognised clearly these days. There is no love lost in marriage and partnerships anymore. Your write is very much my taste with the kickback of words that leaves a surprising taste. You asked why I have changed my name, that is my true name but everyone I know since I could recognise called me Freddie or Dedu my nickname.

    I think in the end women have reserves of strength that they may be unaware of. Out of pain that strengh emerges and true beauty is revealed. Your poem depicts the emergence of her spirit.
