Cynical Beings

You are my solvent

for my wounds torn

open from inside so

deep now I’m reborn.

Do not follow I have

treaded deep water

drowning I’m a cynic;

also nothing to offer.

I’ll take your joy to

my mound in fields

where stones collect

atop bodies to reveal.

I hover over fathoms

of truth I see selfish

reasons for all here

who the same perish.

Let yourself not be

drowned in oceans

where cold tumult

left me to be frozen.

Honor dies daily I

shed tears long ago.

Now I walk so alone

I know not where go.

I thank you my dear

for shedding a little

light over here where

faith’s turned brittle.

Do not what I tend

to do so easily found

is I lack hope in it in

the world I drowned.

Yet I return to your

banner you held high.

Hope in two of us it

resuscitated me alive.

From your gentle words

I’ve got new perspective.

Still now I fear it dear

my motive is defective.

    I wish I had the words to bring some sort of comfort, dear friend. I’m not sure if this applies to your situation, but my brother once told me that anything life offers that is worth having, is worth striving for. And even if you don’t get what you set your sights on, something greater might fall into your lap. Sometimes life brings us a joy while we are striving towards something else. I’ve never forgotten that. Anyway, whatever it is you’re lacking hope for/in, try hard not to, because if it’s worth having, it’s worth striving for. 🤗

    1. Thank you for your words Kristian. I’m in a little bit of a dark place as of the moment but this too shall pass. Thank you my friend.

        Sorry to hear that. You’re right. It will pass. It might pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass! 😂 Hugs! I hope you find something today that makes you smile.
