A Prayer 4 Desperate Hearts

Photo: Masquerade by permission from LifeThruBlueEyes by Diana Lee @Diana605

When you dream
I dream with you
When you cry
my soul cries too
I wish I could
make you see
how things will be
when you make it through
When love fails you
let it rest
When you fail love
you tried your best
When your whole experience
is in another's hands
When you're tied to things
you didn't plan
When you cant eat
and pay your rent
You did your job
but moneys sent
to duty
to culture
to that failing love
In moments when
you've had enough
I pray that you
would just hang on
and begin again
before too long
but understand
how you arrived
where you go next
you must decide



  1. Such sweet, poetic encouragement! Thanks :)

  2. An eloquently stated prayer of hope. I'm honored that you chose another of my photos to sit along side it. Thank you Theron.

  3. always a decision waiting...very nice...bkm

  4. I like that one. Hope you are not suffering yourself. Good flow.

  5. A nice reminder of hope.

  6. nice. in the midst of all there is still hope...nice uplifting message..

  7. "When you dream
    I dream with you.
    When you cry
    my soul cries too."

    What a beautiful evocation of love. In the face of such, how could there not be hope? But the failure of love can certainly rattle, can make all uncertain...Beautiful work.

  8. Another gorgeous sadness tinged piece from you Theron. You write so wonderfully. Kudos my friend

  9. You've some excellent four-line structures throughout, addressing dreams and failure in particular. What I like best is a part that seems to diverge slightly from the structure...
    "You did your job
    but money's sent,
    to duty,
    to culture,
    to that failing love."
    Well-expressed and adds a layer of structural texture to the overall poem.

  10. Hi Theron

    "Where you go next you must decide.." Beautiful.

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
