Blemished; tarnished as brass
In search of hidden places to rest
Floundering in seas of murky haze
Struggling through each cloudy day
Reaching out from the abyss
Yet helping hands stay far away

    Life can get very lonely at times, but now and then we find a friend who helps us get our lives back on the right track... This emotive piece is one that I think most of us can relate to. Nicely penned, Karen.

    Yes, each has its own flaws and its hard to breathe the reality that their certain people who doesn't get enough help. This poem speak of its reality in this life. So bold, to hear what each one need. Great write.

    Very thought provoking piece. The struggle goes on for us all... Some times it can be almost over whelming. And usually only we ourselves can gives us hope and a future....

    Helping hands are closer than people realize, sometimes pride prevents people from asking for help.

    this seems sad, I hope it is not describing your present feelings in life. So nice to see this recent post of yours, Karen. HOpe to see more.

    it often seems at our darkest hour that no one is around to offer help, though they are, sometimes you just need to work through things on your own and if we fall they will help pick us back up :) I like this one! hugs

    Strongly expressed poem. Speaking of desire, elusive wishes; perseverance is the solution. You'll be surprised how close at hand help could be! // paul

    A very moving piece that makes one reflect Karen.

    I love the animation in this poem, not just imagery, but action. It works well. The only change I might suggest would be to swap the "Reaching out . . ." and "Struggling through . . ." lines. I think that would link the last line better to the whole. Well done and very moving.

    powerful message. Too often we turn away, or just don't see hands stretched out in need.

    Helping hands sometimes love better from a distance, pointing to the great signs of self motivation, make your beautiful Art from the clouds of promises. You are so subtle in your sorrow, its pretty. J.A.B.

    May we be hands and feet to those reaching out for hope.. Good but sad write my friend Karen!

    Nice write about someone reaching out for a helping hand, but it's not readily available. An imaginative write.
