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.

William Wright

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.
