Where Do Dark Times Come From By Mark Edgemon

Darkness comes with each wrong choice
Hammering out my will my own way
Dig deep and you will find a reservoir of joy
With the whole hearted acceptance of Truth



I printed this stanza on a business card, laminated it, and intend to carry it with me for a long time.

We all need this lesson.

Bill,

I am shocked and yet most gratified! Thank you for acknowledging my work and the belief that my poetry has worth and value.

I have written poetry all my life, but have rarely shown it. Unbeknownst to me, writing poetry flows almost effortlessly, while writing fiction is like grinding metal. There is a reason for that and one day I may find it.

Your sentiment will motivate more writing in the future.

Thank you,

Mark

I agree with Bill. This is a powerful piece of 'advice' so to say. I'm going to read more poetry in the future and many even try my hand at one!!

Very nice one!!
