Somewhere In Your Life


"All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on." ~Havelock Ellis




Hi my name is loneliness I am somewhere in your life but if you dry your tears and simply look above
you will see that in your life there is love.

Hi my name is fear I am somewhere in your life but if you uncover your eyes and walk out into light's beam
you will see that in your life there can be peace.

Hi my name is discouragment I am somewhere in your life but if you pick yourself up and open the closed door
you will see that in your life there is hope.

Hi my name is doubt I am somewhere in your life but if you walk out on a limb all the way
you will see that in your life there is faith.

Hi my name is bitterness I am somewher in your life but if you open up your heart and let go of the pain
you will see that in your life there is forgiveness to take it's place.

  9. What a beautiful thought, Carrie.. I really loved the positivity shown here... it's refreshing!! And you wrote it in first person...and that gave the poem so much more depth and "reality"... too good!

    And it reminded me of a (kinda) similar poem I had written about a year ago.. here it is (if you like)

  10. i think bitterness is one of the worst things in life - it poisons everything and in the end nothing good and healthy is left...much wisdom in this
