Beyond The Shadows

Hyde Park Thursday Poets Rally Week 74 (October 4 -October 10)

We grope in the shadow to see dawn,
To know what's happening ahead,
We struggle, fall, and explore, old and young,
To find out what can be altered instead.
Sad because evil force misleads,
Integrity virtue, and honesty vanishes,
Hurt since many a folk still cheats,
and the efforts to correct wrongs are considered as trashes.
Darkness and gloom sweep our souls,
Giving us steaming feel as if we're in showers,
But if we calm down, and rethink our goals,
We can rise in the strength of God, his powers.


  1. sad that many people focus on issues too big, never truly solve any problems.

  2. "evil force misleads,
    Integrity virtue, and honesty vanishes" So true.

  3. Powerfully vivid! Kind of sounds like the streets I live on and the people I meet. I look around and sometimes I think it's hopeless; everything, the situations, the problems, the people, but I'm not God and I truly believe that with Him on our side we can look at all of it and see what it can be, not what it is now. This was a great read. Thanks so much for sharing with us. Have a blessed weekend!
