Original Poetry by DS Coremans


Sonnet – The Year of Pain

The year of pain brought me to where I am.
Losing my job, starting over again,
falling on holiday, breaking my arm,
breaking my heart when love finally ends.

There is no doubt that all of this was tough
but they were just droplets in the pond.
When mum died, I came to understand loss;
this forever changed the path I was on.

I am coming to terms with where I am
but there are still some things I have to learn.
Until I learn I do all that I can
hoping to find a truth I can discern.

Knowing you taught me to see the divine.
Knowing the future you gave me is mine.


Happy Writing. Stay Safe. Stay Distracted.
