ENDURANCE

Taken from Pixdaus

If there is no light
in the dawn of dreams; how long
do I endure dark?


Written for Haiku Heights

  3. You endure dark,
    By telling yourself,
    That the sun shines brightest,
    After the rain,
    And the birds are the chirpiest,
    In the days after the pain....:)

  8. Huge sections of my life relates to this so strongly.
    But then again, the sun is compelled to rise.

  11. Your question reminds me of one that pops up over and over in the Psalms: "How long, O Lord?" And since there is never an answer, I imagine that the answer is: "As long as it takes."
