There comes a point in all our lives be we lovers, brothers, sisters husbands or wives when things look so black that we cannot pass, we have no way forward and now way back. Our options disappear one by one and there seems no escape no getting back out into the sun.
How far have we fallen how low can we be. Our souls are like fallen angles needing to be free. Unlike those who escaped from the light these are the ones afraid of the night.
You get to this time in your life you been through the trouble you have seen off the strife. You have climbed the hill and stood on top at the peak now it all runs down away from you lost, your dreams in a heap.
Our wings maybe tattered are haloes be gone but for all we have been through we are so strong. So never give up please don’t despair lets all look out for each other. Not matter how far you have fallen it is true that if you reach out your hand … anther is reaching for you.
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

Yes, hands in hands and ever onwards towards the light, towards love, towards an angel hand in hand to guide and provide strength.
That is beautiful write about it.
I might well do tomorrow, good night.
unity is a necessity… great topic and wondeful write (!_!)
Thank you Art. It is something we should all work on. Too many lost and lonely souls out in the world. XX
Hold your head up
And you’ll be noticed by luck
Lovely poem, just lovely
Thank you Andrea I try. xx
Love how this presents the problem and the solution.
“How far have we fallen” is such a inherently poetic phrase — rhetorical in content, so musical in its accents.
Thank you a friend was low and I tried to show them they were not alone………. the simple phrases seem to say the most.
Indeed we all need a hand. Inspirational!
just reach out and you will find some one reaching out to you !
