Spin of Winds

There she sat, quiet and faint
The world spinning around her
Her tree in the woods lay just afar
From the fought home of despair
Because just as she was to rise and walk
Back to the home of despair
The rays of hope would dwindle to none
And evaporate into the air
For the bedlam and panic would take over all
Leaving her to take to the past
And she who fought to stop the spin
Would never get to last
The world would soon spin again
And the winds would still run free
But into the forest and down the trail
Would lay the absent tree

I write spontaneously, usually without inspiration, but a song called "somewhere only we know" made me think of a faint, lone spot in the woods. Which inspired me to think of this wonderful poem.

"It is far better to be optimistic and wrong than pessimistic and right. Optimistic people can always find the good in things even if they seem horrible, whereas pessimists just ignore the good while focusing on the bad."

I really loved this poem..... you really held me in your choice of words and langue; I couldn't look away! I could totally feel your inspiration too. Good job.
