Poetry by Shigé Clark

"Let the battered heart rejoice"




She was a soft and sturdy song,
A melody strung out of oak.
She was a strong and silent sad,
The kind that cracked but never broke.

– s. Clark

She Believes

She believed,
Once upon a time,
In dreams and fairytales
In storybooks and rhymes.
She has learned,
Since then, that life is hard,
That dreams are work and wear,
And stories leave you scarred.
But she believes,
That dreams can still come true,
That love is worth the fight
And faith can see you through.

– s. Clark
