Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Many Sufferings…


The sight of human suffering,
The sound of another’s pain.
I feel such angst, over my minimal power,
To bring about much needed change…

Suffering, like flourishing blossoms,
From foundational, fertile soil.
Petals fall like tears from swollen eyes,
Turmoil and distress are nourished and toiled.

There’s a world of hurting souls,
Yet many a closed eye remain.
The wilting and fallen are often ignored,
Perpetuating heartache’s stains.

Water, sunlight, and tending,
Compassionate hands for healthy growth,
Prayers, time, and giving,
Sharing love can ease pain and give needed hope…

  1. I am swept away by the beauty of your words, they are so a reflection of your heart and spirit! The image says so much also, you did an awesome job Elizabeth! It is such a moving write! Hugs and blessings!

  2. It’s so hard to watch people be vicious to each other and lack empathy. These are the kinds of messages that restore hope.

  3. Somehow I missed this one (crazy Reader, unreliable)–very lovely, I especially like, “petals fall like tears”.

  4. what an eyecatching image to go with your words 🙂
