Greater Despair – Author William Wright, Jr.


Daily I sway

In their scowling shadows

Far above

The earthbound womb


In slanderous words

I coil

Braving their might

The scorn

Of their fearful refrain


By daylight’s hand

I sway and turn

Wrung dry

Depleted and cold


Extinguished too soon

By each foul

And tormented gust


With a greater despair

 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.
