A Poem by denise

life experiences change us


So many wants

So many needs

So many dreams

So bright and shiny at the start

Still remain

Now shadowed

Tarnished, dented, in disrepair

Yet the will lingers on

a spark



 ... still wanting, 

hoping for that fire

May the heat of desire become uncontrollable that the flame can do nothing but ignite- wonderful words- all is possible🌹

No matter what we live and learn and no matter what life puts in our way, it never quite extinguishes hope, even when we ourselves believe it hopeless. Beautifully penned.

Thank you ... I write with my message - it's nice when someone gets it
Hope is such a wonderful thing, that sometimes gives you the result you have really wanted, such as that you hope to get a high grade on that exam you didn't revise for, or the fact that the assembly at the school had been cancelled, when it was your turn to go upstairs and the poem you have written, somewhat describes hope good enough for me to give this an average rating. Yet it is still discoverable, on the front page that you hope somebody would click on. Thirty-five views isn't bad for a poem, to say it has only been out less than a day, (the time I am writing this, is 9th March). Well done. 35 views? Less than a day? This is fantastic. The poem is short-lived in terms of length, but that's okay. The writing counts more than the duration, so good job.

Indeed. And it is quite painful as the years grow short.

Fantastic and devastating and other loads of emotions packed in a small poem. Such a great piece, from someone I'm discovering is a tremendous talent. Great job. Loved the part "flicker, fighting,....still wanting" that one hit some truths. Such a good poem.
