“In Quiet Desperation”

Something you deal with
in your own way,
in your own time as a human.

Some choose the bottle, the pill
the needle for the end,
some choose cold blue steel, the taste of iron.

The strain of stress can kill the soul,
leaving you hopeless,
floating alone in the ocean of human despair.

Yet faith in God and yourself
can prevail if you believe,
to end it all is a waste of human life.

Hold out your hand, breathe in and out,
look into the eyes of an angel
to find solace in your desperate humanity.

Timothy Michel DiVito c2021
“Hold out your hand to me”

I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
