SHADOWBOX

There is a shadowbox inside of me

One not meant for others to see

Sometimes it is filled with pain or dread

When times are troubled inside my head

*********************************

Other times it’s filled with hope, love and glee

The sunnier, shinier side of me

Regardless, it’s there firmly in place

Keeping a watchful frame ’round my grace

Believe… a poem

In my failure I dug deeper into solitude and regret.

During this time of bitterness, I found nowhere and no one to turn to.

With my loss it seemed there could only be one way out.

But,

In failure I can find strength.

In bitter times I can find sweet repose.

In loss I can find life.
