A poem on joy.

Against the

Battles we face in

Crests and troughs, I

Depend on Joy.

Every time I

Feel myself

Giving in to


I implore

Joy to visit me;

Keep me company.

Light the darkness.

Manifest in me.

New energy to

Operate on

Perilous seas.

Quiet and quell

Rough waves.

Slow nature's pulse

To a steady caress

Undulating gracefully on my

Voyage through variable tides.

Waves suddenly feel

Xenial and kind as I

Yield to Joy’s nudge —

Zephyr to my sails.
