From the Pocket of a Dream

*The Trail*

Drink it up to the bottom
to the last drop of the poison
which smiles from within
and be a blizzard over the stiff ground
The one who wrests even if nothing is left

For there was no compassion in hearts
no mercy no love in words
So be the storm passing through
heartless and cold to those who burn with hate

Stay firm above the abyss which lay in wait
Solid upon the cliff that lurks in darkness
smelling with odor of malice
calling upon for a jump

Look behind you
A path of green among the branches
with crumbs of love to follow
For a pure heart there is always a way

    When life gives us hardship, we have two choices, either to fall into the darkness or forgive and let go. “For a pure heart there is always a way” and may we all never forget that. Thank you for this piece, a very lovely one with a deep message.

    Congrats on your award. This one totally deserved it.

    Yes, if we stand firm within our love there is always a way back to the light.
    Lovely prose, lovely message.

    Lovely, particularly the redemptive tone at the end:

    “Look behind you
    A path of green among the branches
    with crumbs of love to follow
    For a pure heart there is always a way.”

    Beautiful…as always, Eclipse.
