Stand by Lou Farrell
I wrote this poem after reading a writing prompt for the word stand. It just came to me in a flash and I hope you enjoy it. I hasten to add it was also just after I had my vaccination against Covid.
I stand in the face of adversity, life being my university. On all accounts I’ve witnessed, my joy beholds with interest. Those moments between truth, where lies win with no proof. Direct in my path towards hope, My certificate shows I can cope.
