Rise

Rise

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver

If you delve deep enough ~ deep enough to know the pain even your bones feel ~ you will find all sorts of treasures there ~ you will know the feeling of true love ~ unconditional ~ what it is like to be lost to such melancholy that you can only be reborn after being so low ~ you will know the answers before you ask them ~ you will see epiphany is not ether bound but within yourself because you can only be knocked down so many times before you rise and deal the deck with new cards that show nothing but smiles for there shall always be dark days ~ it is how much light and love you bring forth into the world that matters ~ how much empathy and soul given respect you give out to the universe ~ like attracts like ~ will you walk the path of ignorance to fellow man and deny them the right of happiness or will you embrace and be as one ~ the future is fragile and we are the nurturers ~ we are the wanderers ~ we are ~ shall always be ~ the flame that can lure compassion from its slumber ~

My Dearest Writing Friend,
It is good to read your works once more. As my TBI injury has slowly been improving I’m starting to write and muse a little once more. You have always amazed me with you thought provoking writes, you are gifted my friend. And as usual you with this piece of verbal of art have brought several hours of musing before my fire with your truth. You are a sage my dear, and you have at least one adoring fan in Alaska.

Blessings, Laughing-Bear

That was by far the most inspired thing I've read in a long time.. We are the nurturers the wanderers.. I love that line. One compliments and proceeds the other IN nurturing life. Amazing.

Poppy Ruth Silver,
"Rise". I agree with the idea behind your poem. We have the ability to question, to think and find our ways from a place of pain to a new tomorrow.
As you say; "there shall always be dark days." It is what is done with them.
"We are the wanderers" That is so good. Wanderers see many things and can have access to many clues in this life as it is lived..............Thanks much........Kathy

"for there shall always be dark days ~ it is how much light and love you bring forth
into the world that matters ~ how much empathy and soul given respect you give
out to the universe" ~
"we are the wanderers ~ we are ~ shall always be
~ the flame that can lure compassion from its slumber" :D

Wow & Wonderful-this is a spot on piece of wisdom written
with such an artful style. Very crafty-very creative. :)

' because you can only be knocked down so many times before you rise and deal the deck with new cards that show nothing but smiles for there shall always be dark days ~ it is how much light and love you bring forth into the world that matters ~ '

So often i feel you're able to look into my mind, my thoughts, my emotions and stroke them calm, dear Poppy. You truly have that precious gift of reaching out with far more than words written or up on a screen. Thank you. (You)
