(Not S0) Tropic of Cancer August 2, 2016

Posted by vsap in Blogroll, Poetry, Uncategorized.

I can deny the pain and work through this season –

I know it will pass whether I live or die.

Encouraged to fight, survive, I search for a reason

I know doesn’t exist and I heave a helpless sigh.

Not giving up is the easy part as friends urge me on

Driving an inexplicable hope from deep within.

This is only a stop and the train will soon be here and gone

And I will ride forgiven, in spite of my sin.

We have all been through that time when we’re indestructible

When it’s useless to tell us differently.

As the truth of life became undeniable

With jaundiced eyes we were forced to see.

The revelation of my situation was discovered in the bock beer of life

That heavy, dark place with a distinct smell and flavor.

The richness rises from my children and my wife

And I look forward to a time when I get to savor it.
