I will overcome--By Inge Wesdijk--The Netherlands

I will overcome

Sometimes ...
I only want to lay down,
close my eyes, and sleep.
Turn reality into oblivion.
A fading spirit,
my inner strength falters.
Please, let me linger
in pleasant dreams,
and never return.

Your hand in mine, our tears
mingle in an unvoiced understanding.
The pain in your eyes
reflects your silent suffering.
For you, I will fight until
I raze all barriers.
With you, I will overcome.

Inge Wesdijk is a Dutch writer, poetess, and photographic artist who works under the pseudonym Daginne Aignend. She likes hard rock music and fantasy books. She is a vegetarian and spends a lot of time with her animals.

  4. A sad read with a slap of reality requiring the reader to think as well as feel his way through the words. I can't find anything to fault and therefor there remains only one thing to say....Well done and God bless!
