[A Poet in Distress]

[A Poet in Distress]

A Poem by Germany Rose

A poet in his most pressing moments.


A poet in distress.

Is really quite a mess.

With words he cant confess.

With his pen he cant profess.

Overwhelmed by oncoming stress.

At first the poet wants to protest.

With all his heart and time he invests.

Upon the words inscribed upon his breast.

He wants to argue, but to protest would surely mean to regress.

But from all corners he's being pressed.

Compacting himself, completely compressed.

Praying for a nurturing caress.

Of strength in faith he must assess.

To mature spiritually and mentally in finesse.

To all the daily trials ahead he must address.

To relearn the fact that every day is a good day.

And it surely has been blessed.

I can relate to your poem. Oftentimes I could consider myself as a writer in "distress".

By the way, what a nice rhyming of words you've got. Such a great vocabulary. :)

I view writing as an endless easel, with each abstract word exploring the vast intangibles of life! It holds my own personal resolve when my tears intermix with the journal in my pocket. (But of c.. more..
