Amazing Poem

David sent me his book, and I just loved it. I really resonated with one particular poem, and wanted to share. You can learn more of his extraordinary story and work at

The Adventurer

Shining a light
Down within
Understanding the
Depths of emotion
Never understood
Or explained

Allowing someone close
To help heal these pains
A mind can’t
Think its way through
A darkness
Hiding a great sadness

Detached from
This pain
An inner world
Without love and
Makes reality
So painful

The adventurer
With courage and
Fights for our life
So the esteem
Of one’s self can grow

Only by sharing
This pain
Can understanding
Be understood
When one has
Lived in flight
All of one’s life

-D.J. Russell
