Poetry Corner – hold your head up

hold your head up

How have I, once so proud

to share with others become so despondent

hiding away in the darkness of isolation

How have I aspired to remain anonymous

when all I strive for is notoriety,

How come I am holding my head in shame

when I used to carry it so high

How have I sunk into such a deep hole

when I used to see over the tallest peaks

How have I given up when

there’s still so much left to do

so much to share

so much 

yet to be done…

For now I'll remain 

in the dark where I belong.
