Destructive tendencies overshadow joy
Empty heart and emotionless void
Piercing silence and perpetual loneliness
Replaces peace and solitude.
Even in our darkest hours we seek the light.
Sustain our strength with firm resolve
Support each other with promises new
In higher spirits soar above the stigma and the shame
Overcome the numbness.
Never give up on tomorrow

At d’Verse Frank challenged us to create an acrostic, and this is tonight’s offering, I might have another later, because he introduced me to some other styles and I might have a go at one of them.
I took the photos tonight down on the beach, it was a beautiful late summer dusk, I wanted to catch the seagull soaring to represent the spirit and hope at the end of the acrostic, they soar too fast and my hands are not steady enough…but I was happy with the two I managed to capture for here. This is what I do to uplift my spirit.
