The All-Encompassing Darkness and Pain (Poem)

By Les Henson.

Life is so hard and difficult

no bed of rose petals

rather one of piercing thorns

hurting deep within

penetrating the heart

and deadening the soul.

Why is it so?

I feel the pain

I hear the darkness

that burns so deep

within my soul

without a hope

a dim longing for escape.

It would be so easy

to end it all

to take the not so easy way out

leaving hurt and pain

for those left behind.

Where is hope?

There is no light

and, yet a glimmer

far away in distant lands.
