Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
In these troubled times it helps to express our feelings

Beyond Despair

by Jerome Goldberg

I hover between sanity and insanity
And find myself constantly spouting profanity

Life is tough and definitely not just
But it is better than being reduced to dust

I know there is light at the end of the tunnel
But why must I go through such a long painful funnel

The treacherous storm destroyed my cable
How will I know the end to Judge Judy's fable

Sad Poems writing prompt entry
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.

In these troubled times it helps to express our feelings but also helps to think positive and have a good laugh - hope you enjoyed this
