Poet Bio

Hold my hand,
Journey with me through this wearisome land,
Don’t cease to speak to me,
As we sojourn across the sea.

You say there’s a door through the night,
You say there’s a place with perpetual light,
These words I believe,
As to hope I cleave.

You say weary hearts don’t see beyond the shadows,
You say I should go beyond the meadows,
Recalcitrant monsters dwell in my room,
I wrestle with adamant gloom.

Oh! Mama, still go with me,
Till darkness eventually flee,
Oh! Mama, don’t yet ease into the night,
I won’t give up in the fight.
