for robin williams

a terrible and lonely war he waged
against his inner self.
no fame. no accolades
no audiences.
depression with
its stealth.
too many battles
war weary we
first lost in
darkest of
then alive no more
just numb.
rest now in peace.
your struggle now
the world a
sadder place today.
we wish you
instead of your depression
had won.

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
