“Chasing Rainbows” by Angela Cohen

It’s on these cold winter nights

When I’m afraid of my own shadow

I have stared failure in the face

And I have come out on the dark side of the moon

At times shame swells in my parched throat

But I still count my blessings

Even though I have had my share of broken promises

I think about the labyrinth of fear surrounding me

I long to rescue my lost, wounded soul

And rise above the melancholy state of this world

But I know it will require much patience to accomplish

this improbable feat
