Poem of Courage

After reading a friend’s writing, “The Hell’s Barge Self” – an inspiring account of ones fighting spirit to cherish life through surgery and not succumb to agents of evil – I wrote this poem in response…

Facing the faces of many
Disparaging people unkind
A warrior of courage with faith
Evil cast away – out of mind.

Drifting on boat through a dark hell
Operating to fight disease
Veiled voices behind a curtain
A lesson learned – not to appease.

Emerging stronger than before
Precious life held close to her heart
Eyes opened look forward with hope
Living life anew – a fresh start.

Poem In Response

Inspired by a friend, writer Carla Milho & her recent work, “Rest In Peace” – where she discusses the gift of life, present challenges, and an optimistic future – I wrote this short poem in response

The dark corners of empty rooms
Negative events of the past
I’ll put aside such memories
Like ghosts not meant to last.

Instead, the sounds of happiness
From friends who really care
This miracle of life, so grand
It’s mine – to live and share.

My dreams ahead, pursued with hope
I’ll focus on the positive
Because the best is yet to come
And, yes, I’ve got so much to give!

From Portugal With Imagination

Truly a naturally beautiful woman, Carla Milho, based in Lisbon, Portugal, is a gifted & creative writer with a wonderful sense of imagination. I very much enjoyed her recent writing, “To Conquer“, and encourage you to visit her web site to read more positive, insightful and inspiring works.

Words of Inspiration

After reading “Lost In Time And Space” – a poem by my friend & writer Carla Milho – I was inspired and responded by writing the following poem…

In the depths of despair
When time had no hands
Her clothes tattered and torn.

She questioned, “why me”?
Searching deep in her soul
Found hope and love reborn.

Now upright with courage
Each step purposeful
The Red Warrior roams free.

Named Carla Milho
Her friends celebrate
The life which has come to be.
