Tattered Window to Your Favorite Teen Drama 
From a room filled with gloom 
To a room crashing with laughter 

Tattered Window (English sonnet) 

She searches for a reason for the day
There through a tattered window of her room
A lifetime of rejection sewed her gloom
Her fashion formed through heartaches and dismay
And darkness gladly takes her to its tomb
With promises of lies to ease her way
To please and tease then seize a soul astray
Soft sighs disguise the perils which there loom
And for a while deception felt so grand
The mask of sadness consumed youthful years
There through a tattered window came a cry
She searches through her room to understand
And what she found would fill her eyes with tears
A strange new star was dawning in the sky 

Back into the world of the English sonnet. I tried to paint as gloomy a picture as I could. Notice line three, in the second stanza. It contains a sequence of rhyme which act as a redundancy. Our heroin is so surrounded by darkness that the sight of a star, whatever its meaning, refreshes her. 

I believe in the morning. In a hope that eventually shines through. I, and I'm sure we, have faced many dark situations. Confusion and gloom seems to permeate everything, Then comes a morning and the refreshing sunrise. I have lost the love of my life and currently face a very bleak future. Yet, I have been blessed in meeting my new wife, Amor, who protects me from any  gloom. As far as my future, there is something, a light, a feeling: fear not. Just go with it. What I am suggesting is that; It's not over till it's over. I am from the school that believe life is a roller coaster. It has its ups and its downs, Even when the ride is over, there is that comfortable cruise to the finish. It hardly makes sense to say, "remember this", when we are experiencing life's highs and lows. As wondrous as the human species is, we can only process so much. But in those times when we are not overloaded make life's hope, life's morning sunshine a part of us. And enjoy. 

Here is a strange song. Although it is sad, it has a touch of hope:

Teenagers want to be able to fight for what's right - but 
finding out what's right is now 90 percent of the battle.

  1. Anne Lamott said it better than I can:
    Nothing heals us like letting people know our scariest parts: When people listen to you cry and lament, and look at you with love, it's like they are holding the baby of you.
