Poems on Despair

Despair is not weak;
It is strong.
It fights against our hope.
It fights against our determination.
It fights even against our heart’s conviction-light.


Despair is drowning me,
My life boat
And my joy divine.
I must destroy the despair-night
To shine in Eternity’s sunshine.


Do not learn to love despair.
If you do that,
Never will you be able to repair
The painful damage
To your poor life.
