Sie nie Wissen, Wie stark Sie bis stark sind, ist Ihre einzige ...

I am broken- my soul fragmented, my muse flattened and crushed; these wings beaten and fractured, I am suspended in time with no future . . . laying in a hospital bed, waiting for some hope. Is this the end? Oh sorrow! Oh sadness! The poet in me is humbled and lost, weeping, but slowly, slowly bits and pieces are meeting in my mind; inside of me a strength is burning, and I pick up a pen hesitating . . . and start writing faltering, halting, I write, and my wings unfurl- _______________________ June 30, 2017 Poetry/Free Verse/Crushed Copyright Protected, ID 17-1261-000-0 All Rights Reserved, 2017, Constance La France

Heidi, thanks for your visit to my poem and your comment, I am down lately too, but cannot tell you what exactly is wrong it that makes sense. I wrote this poem after I had a health problem back in 2017 and had to stay in hospital, it was how I felt at the time - so defeated but inside a fire was burning -Constance
