    dotsCaught in Life's Undertowdots

    Blue streams of floating thoughts
    flow down the River Woe
    and turn to blackened grief
    within its undertow.

    To venture down its waters is to risk a grasp on life
    becoming just a victim to depression, pain, and strife.

    With anguish at each turn,
    time's rapids churn remorse;
    dark sadness strikes sharp rocks
    along life’s wayward course.

    Despair meets mere existence found afloat on misery
    reminding ev'ry drowning soul that Woe won't set you free.

      That read very well and depression and suffering have inspired many poems - this was a great challenge poem and I'm glad it's not from experience!

    love,peace,joy,abundance & smiles to share

      What an excellent treatise on grief and despair, presented in a rhyming poem! This has excellent structure, rhyme, and rythmn, and tells an excellent story! Bravo on a fine job, lovely lady!

    I think the reader would follow the rythmn scheme better if four line are used in the stanzas that have two long lines.

    By the way, what was the challenge?
