Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted

Sadness ever stalks our human steps
And dulls our senses, hard to bear.
Depression, dogged and despairing,
Nihilistic thoughts, fog our bearings.
Endowed are we with inner strength.
Serenity is borne on wings of acceptance.
Surrender to the 'now' of our earthly existence.

Writing Prompt
Sadness has overcome us all at one time or another. Either caused by a relative or close friend's death or from the girl or guy that broke our heart or just life in general. We all handle situations differently, some good, some bad. This contest gives us the ability to explore this. Your poem can also play into other emotions that are common to writing like this such as anger or depression.
