“In The Desert Of Man”

There comes a time
in every man's life,
when he has to fight the strife,
or be beaten down
like a thirsty man,
in the desert of the world.

You have to drink
from the cup of hope,
and hope the water is fine,
or you won't dine
or drink fine sweet wine,
but taste the bitter seed of defeat.

You have to rise 
like a Phoenix,
from the burned out shell
of our heart's hell,
where you can't stand the smell
in a downtrodden society in chaos. . . .

it's better than dying with a broken heart,
and parched lips because faith decided to depart.

Timothy Michael DiVito c2020
“From the ashes. . . a Phoenix rises”
