In A Darkness

A Sonnet When Everything seems lost, and you think you are alone

By Mike Singleton 🌜 Mikeydred πŸŒ›Published 3 years ago β€’ Updated 3 years ago β€’ 1 min read

A sonnet for how I and a good friend are feeling at the moment, or maybe it's just me

When Your Inspiration is now Missing

When all around you seems to be darkness

When You Think You will shrink and become less

When you can’t clear your mind and think


When there is nothing on your horizon

When the darkness thickens and then congeals

When pressure is crushing you, you can’t feel

When everything that you loved is now gone


When things all seem lost , you must find your hope

When you feel hopeless, please reach out for help

When you feel guilty, drop all those shackles

When you feel lost think you’ll soon be up

When you feel down, then you will get your help

When your friends will help you win your battles

Johnny Cash's "Dark as the Dungeon" seemed an appropriate song to lead this
