Honest Are We, Embolden Truths Dare We To Face. Saddest are we that attempt bending Light clash within ourselves, when all hope seems lost unfathomable, yet we strive with might, to defeat loss and Love at any cost! Truest are we that dare in seeking to learn while world in heavy chains so firmly binds dare we to pray and our redemption earn, forgiving sins, to heal our wounded minds! Bravest are we that our lives truly live decide to stay and not retreat in flight offer up shattered hearts to mercy give, even tho' success may not be in sight! Honest are we, embolden Truths dare we to face. Weakest are we, thinking True Love we can replace. Robert J. Lindley, May 1- 2020 Sonnet, ( Thoughts Born From A Sojourn In The Deep Woods )

This sonnet is very restrained in its presentation, yet with all of the impact that we have come to expect from your mighty pen, my friend. Great poetry.
