The Poetry Marathon 2022 – Hour 18
Original Poetry by DS Coremans
Sonnet – This Moment
The moment which brings the most joy to me
is this very moment in which I am.
There were times when I didn’t give a damn
but from those dark times I am truly free.
There are some, of course, who might disagree
but I have stood through the night until dawn
and I see the stars I once wished upon
and in this moment I am filled with glee.
I have come further than I ever hoped
because I have love and supportive friends
who I turn to when I feel myself stall,
who always check in to see that I coped.
I have many on whom I can depend
to catch me if ever I find I fall.
