Mark is in My Heart! Poetry Thursday Distended Anguish

Please send love and support for Darlene’s son Mark, who just two days ago, had a tragic accident and is struggling to recover. This is a crucial time for Darlene, any an all support is appreciated. As we all make seasonal preparations, Darlene poignantly writes about her devastation, and fears. Please embrace the true spirit of Christmas, take time to Send love to a family that’s suffering.

I created a heart for Mark, although I've not met the young man, I feel a connection and deep sadness for the family. I go to bed thinking about it and wake up thinking about it. I say quiet prayers throughout the day! Originally, the heart was purple on the inside for the courage he will need to recover, then there was blue font representing the young man, with a pink layer representing all the mothers sending healing energy, Red for all the passion and support in abundance,and a fine line of white to represent spirit enveloping the boy and bringing us all together. Instead I made it vibrant orange, full of life, and color, as I imagine he will be when he has recovered. The purple represents the bravery for a Mothers Hero!



For Poetry Thursday I had planned to write about pressure, I opted to write about Marks mom situation instead.

Distended Anguish

Oblivious,
Then not
Shock, disbelief
Distraught

Overwhelmed
In Pain,
Tender
Insane

Worried
Worn,
Saturated in
Forlorn

Results
Pending
Imperative
Mending

Wondering
Waiting
Fate
Contemplating

Continued
Waiting
Singing
Debating

Calm
Then not
Teetering
Overwrought

Courage
To cope
With faith
And hope

Messages
Hark
With prayers
For Mark
