POETRY – FREE VERSE – SADNESS

Sadness, like quicksand the harder you struggle the quicker it sucks you down

Sadness, like a tornado destroys all within its path and spits it out

Sadness, like an earthquake shakes your foundation to the core the cracks linger

Sadness, like a tsunami wave after wave crashes into your defenses and breaks your resolve

Sadness, like a volcano erupt burning all your life lines leaving charred remains

Sadness, like a vine creep up when you least expect it entangle you snaring your limbs

 

Friends rally to bring your spirits up

Family unite in a display of support

Life Partner expresses their love

Pets demeanor brings a sense of calm relief

You are the last defense who fights every battle

Alone or with aid sadness is an enemy we all have to fight

And hopefully win more encounters than we lose
