A Tribute to those who heroically battle the ravaging effects of an Angry Dragon and its attempts to cause total annihilation to the spirit.

What is An Angry Dragon?

Some of the greatest heroes of our time will remain unknown to the majority, but still, they are fully known by God. These survivors show us the enduring and awe-inspiring substance from that which miracles are made. They are the warriors who battle the daily devastation and relentless pain of a seething, Angry Dragon- which is that of Depression, Anxiety, and/or PTSD.

Hero- Mariah Carey

Warrior


Oh, Warrior!

You have roamed

many unknown lands,

enduring struggles wide

and unfathomably deep;


A mystery, the many

wanderings of your

tiresome sojourn,

and the lost,

lonely nights,

in which you so weep.


Painful Pestilence


Painful pestilence

and nightmarish darkness,

the angry dragon

breathes upon

your every burdened step;


Its unpredictable torment

of angst and doom,

relentlessly

attempts

to render your spirit

into irreversible debt.


Waging War


I have seen,

and I have heard,

your anguished pleas,

begging for

needed relief;


But mercilessly,

the angry dragon

continues to wage its war,

in hopes to only

further deepen

your somber grief.


My Hero


But alas,

I know my hero!

Unique and valiant,

you inevitably rise up

to the occasion!


You, a noble,

and strong-hearted

opponent,

frequently carry out

your own

resuscitation!


A Survivor


Resourceful,

and courageous,

you are a survivor,

and take firm grip

of your foundation!


Thus, yeilding not

to the angry dragon,

you hijack its mission,

for now,

and halt its devastating

manifestation!

~

      Yes, indeed, Dream On; Christmas can continue long after the holiday is actually over. Jesus is always alive in our hearts!

      I am so sorry about your cousin. Addictions are terrible situations in life. It seems that the addiction takes hold of the victim, and takes on a life of its own, and keeps the person in its control. It’s agonizing to witness a loved one in such a situation.

      Yes, faithful prayer is needed for this situation as there is not a lot more that one can do for someone with an addiction, without enabling them.

      Again, I am deeply sorry.

      Yes, prayer thru Jesus’ Name!

      Christmas can continue long after the day is over. In your heart you keep that unbelievable, vibrant spirit alive and well. Your words excite the numb, worn out, beaten down people who go through the motions of life. I have a cousin I am very worried about. He dealt with drugs in the past and now his life is a roller coaster ride that goes from bad to worse. All I can do is pray he will do what is right. He lives out of state. He doesn't return any of my phone calls. I keep on texting him hoping he will come around. Thank you for sharing. As always take care and keep writing.

      Your poem is perfect and the dragon fits magically. I hope your friend is doing fine. It is tough when we see people we care about struggle with life's problems. Hubs like yours make all the troubles seem so far way. Thank you for sharing and exploring your gift.

      Hari,

      Yes, the fire-breathing dragon, and the struggle... Everyday, unspoken heroes are its survivors.

      It’s very kind of you to stop by, my friend :-)
