The calm’th of the sea terrifies me
As I walk in the waters engulfing my knee,
Not a single wave does ride
Just as if no flicker of hope is left for me to pride
There is the memory of all that is conceded
Of all that is seemingly receded.
But I will not have me capitulating
In despair however frustrating
Even though the future may look bleary
never for once my trust and hope will vary.
Though I thought my spirit had reached the point of going berserk
My muddled mind prefers fortitude even in momentary oblivion than to it havoc wreck.
My abode once a cynosure of a loving hearts, is now wrecked in the debacle.
To what heights can resilience tackle?
Of troubles that seem to reach the welkin ,
Of travail through fathomless depths yet in the making?
Yet I do not seethe! I do not seethe!
