Standing Alone

lighthouse poster,  Image Hosting

standing alone
the safer side of sadness
a cold rock of fortitude

tasting your own thoughts
savoring none
a zestless

bland life

a beacon for an unsafe harbor
signaling lost travelers away
those who also are mislaid in the fog
needing comfort from their storms
as do you

do not be craven
avoiding all flares of hopes, imaginings
risking little

is it so difficult
so hard
so painful
were you hurt so bad

you are not dead
take hold of the helm;
steer towards that light
your beam of brightness

reach out to someone
be their symbol of hope
