Courage for our Friends by William Wright, Jr.

Distilled to mere flesh and bone 

Our mortal wounds 

Divulge, our timeless concern  

Courage, seems all for naught

Before thunderous roads 

In want

For our fragile forms 

In the prime   

Of these loathsome days 

We bower in tune 

In kindred dismay 

Yet ever-more stern 

We remain 

In our stride to thrive 

Fulfilled and true 

Beyond, our shroud of despair

© William Wright, Jr.

Excerpt from the book The Slums of Nightfall

The Slums of Nightfall by William Wright, Jr.

The night sweeps herself over us, as she paints the world black. She joins us, hand in hand, with the wrath of anxiety. She shrouds us with deep despair and in her wake comes the onslaught of depression. At this point we are all in need of a little comfort, perhaps companionship, a guide to trudge through the long nights with, to bring home the glory of a fresh sunrise.We cannot see the bountiful stars amidst the burning rays of the sun, they are invisible to desperately seeking eyes.

My name is William Lorenzo Wright, Jr. I am the youngest of three children, as well as the only son to two loving and hard-working parents. I am a college student from San Diego California and I hold a deep passion for reading and writing poetry. I was sixteen years old when I first fell in love with poetry and I have been faithful to the craft ever since.
