Stoic Stance

Stoic stance,

stand me in good stead;

though the earth give way,

and the mountains rush into the sea,

I will not be moved.

Scales of Justice,

swing no more.


remove thyself from the mill.

Super-sized inner strength,

with a side of courage,

usher the bride to the altar

and marry heart to intent;

Spirit whose breath

holds me aloft,

make good your boast

and hold me fast

in this solo dance,

stoic stance.

    OH! There are not sufficient WOW’s for this one, Melody–definitely one for my “keepsake file”. Excellent rendering–I don’t know what else to say. God bless you–love, Caddo

    Melody, I too, love poetry that can nicely double as prayer, even if unintended. Lovely.
