There is silence in turmoil… joy in the midst of pain Sweetness in the bitter… music in the rain There is light in darkness… illuminated faith shines Hues of colorful sighs… insights into the signs There is beauty in unsightliness… kindness in the lost hope Gentle warmth in a chill… that leaves a way to cope There is laughter in the sorrow… mirth in the grim Even though there is mourning… that leaves the eye dim There is a whisper of inspiration… soothing away the cry Allowing a tear to pierce the heart… mute the brightest sky There is grace in the loathing… even hatred brings insight Precious moments of understanding… can bring pure delight There is goodness in the shame… for it means a heart is contrite No dishonor in remorse… even disgrace is brighter in the moonlight There is warmth in the winter… even though ice chills the bones Fires breathe tenderness… to those who won’t throw stones There is caring in the selfish… when they mend their greed Welcoming the attention… of those who are selfless indeed There is love in the callous… even a hard heart can be thawed When there is the compassion… to give mercy we should applaud 2022 Poetry Marathon Mile 9 Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Mark Toney July 21, 2022
