White-Knuckled Courage

I've reached the other side you know. Daily my cheeks are aglow. White-knuckled courage is my pride. I paid my dues and took the ride. The fog has lifted from my heart. I've been given a brand new start. I fought my demons-took them down. A smile's replaced that lowly frown. When times are rough and hope is lost I'll not forget what doom has cost. White-knuckled courage is my pride. Brought me through to the other side. The pale white moon glows on this earth. Finally I'm happy about my birth. Laughter and love shall follow me. I'm blessed and fortunate as can be! written January 5th,2014

What a wonderful title, and your poem is as well. The last stanza, once learned, is precious, Deb.
