Darkness Of Mind, Darkness Of Soul
Poem By Jill Ferrey
So fortunate and blessed I've been,
To witness and not imagine it...
Six weeks of isolation to endure,
After being diagnosed...
Of having a life threatening illness.
And in a five month period,
I healed to recover from this.
God is good and all the time.
And I became more appreciative,
With a faith to keep in my mind.
To find that taking chances,
Has more than enhanced my life.
And listen less I also do,
To those making excuses...
For themselves as if this proves,
A faking to relate to my experiences...
Is no different than witnessing,
What I did to live.
And had gone through.
'You're not the only one,
To have lived through...
A life threatening experience.
With a recovering done,
To not be so sensitive about it.'
But what I have learned from those,
Who have done it to do...
More respectful they are to others.
With a showing an appreciation to them too.
Maybe one day this you will comprehend.
To leave your pretentions no longer defended.
