Winter of Discontent

The summer of great outdoors Has become the winter of discontent. Families hunkering down indoors, Tring to find various ways to be content. Damage of economic uncertainty, I rather have muddy boots to clean. And reasons to live and think positively. Before the cold winter froze my dream. Tapping into those demons beyond the remit There is emotional privacy creating space. Linked family and friend’s intimate closet, Estate, separate and safe, a kind time waste. A path less taken to the peak of intent, The new belief of seeing around corners. Being heroic in the winter of discontent, We find ourselves asleep with desires. What visions mean to change our course From oceans dragging the world under. Soughing waves gasp for breathless pause, Awaken to find darker things in the hour. We feel the darkness invading our soul. Fear, anger, and blame, waiting to explode. Doubt held the reins balancing the world, All sides of the human condition grow cold.
