[Existential questions in rhyme & meter by rockstar poet in residence Barbie Dockstader Angell—illustrated with one of her marvelous drawings!]
Deceit had pushed me to the edge
and daring me to fall,
He shook my spirit,
destroyed my Faith,
then shoved me off the wall.
Confidence came and picked me up
and gave me all his Will,
the building blocks
to help me up the hill.
But Innocence had lost his way
and Trust destroyed by Time,
so without a gaze
to Happier Days,
I gathered up Courage and climbed.
I passed Frustration on the way.
I bumped into Doubt and Despair,
but I had Endurance
to help me along,
though God only knows to where.
