disillusion comes easily
abandoned but preserving
a lone voice
that speaks the truth
crying in the wilderness
echos into eternity
unaccepted but resolute
steadfast and believing
promises across generations
call me John

Mark … this is a stunning poem … a I love it and your take on the prompt.
Thanks Annie! Can’t post a link on Kellie’s website, not sure what is going on. But glad you liked this one!
Sometime her site won’t take my comments … don’t know what the deal is with that!
Found your link on Google Plus. Nice share!
Thanks so much! Glad to hear Google+ works and glad you found me. Look forward to your posts and following you also.
I just started using the FWF hashtag there.
Concise yet with emotion and promise. Great read.
“unaccepted but resolute”… wow. the humanity you brought with these three words. Goosebumps. Not sure why, but this line gripped me.
Sorry it took so long.
No worries, I was late also! Thanks for the compliment!
Was wondering where you disappeared to. The poem to me says never give up hope. There is always hope. 🙂
Thanks Heidi! Just out of town for a few days up at Birch Bay so posted Sunday night after we got back.
I was up that way, sort of. Guemus Island for a week. Beautiful weather! And actual sand on the beach, if you can believe that. A good foot deep too.
