Poem - Despair's Snare

The poem “Despair’s Snare” was inspired by song that had the line “when there is so much love to give”.  The following line was more hopeful than the couplet in my piece.


Despair's Snare

When there is so much love to give
there is never enough time to live
the latter too short as consequence
of the former demanding recompense

the many sorrows of the world
with lords’ challenge as the source
array against the yearning hearts
wishing more than plaintive thoughts

those empty gestures of the prayers
demands to gods that don’t care
when trials exist to test the weak
breaking wills beyond reprieve

still the love will try its best
extend to measures within its grasp
asking those who truly care
to step beyond despair's snare.
