"Grief must not be stifled, it must have tears; an outlet, a sigh, words."

                 Quote by _Constance



I lay my sad words on paper white, and weave my grief and tears; but my chosen words will not rest quietly, they spiral, curling, whirling- My words thread their winding way, all around the world spiraling; in a whirlwind of emotion and weeping, for those who know grief- And as I pen with ink like blood, I lift my soul 'till it is soaring; climbing up from my deep dark pit, each step, a stepping stone- Up, up, rising, twirling from despair, I leave my sorrow on the page; my pen is my God given gift and the key, for grief must not be stifled- _____________________________ June 10, 2020 Poetry/Verse/My Words Spiral Copyright Protected, ID 20- 1259-531-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the PREMIER contest, Spiral sponsor, Kai Michael Newmann Second Place
