Only hope or a reason to hope,

Can cast a ray of light,

When backed into darkened corner.

In its absence, the pitch of night,

Reigns as supreme in this place.




About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.
