Poems and Phantasms

Life Stories Write



is life too


this time in

this room

clock ticking

rush and wait

turning pages

you never intended

to read


as it turns out

this is your story


so tell it


tell the dark jokes

sing the sad songs  

you can’t forget, laugh

till you feel

like crying

till you



sometimes healing is

not a cure but

the coping

the reconciling

the holding on

to hope regardless


give this day a title

worth remembering

even if

you didn’t choose it


is your adventure

  1. Lurana your words have great meaning especially as one grows older or are living with a disability.If we do not approach at least some of the time with a sense of purpose life affirming commitment and with joy and laughter sadness and isolation becomes more profound, as usual your words have great meaning to me.

    • Thank you . I appreciate your insightful comment…I agree that having a sense of purpose and looking for the bright parts of life makes the challenges much more bearable.
