Rebuilding Paradise Lost ©

Dr. Charles Frederickson
Bangkok, Thailand
2005

Lamenting fall from propitious grace
Stretches of ravaged shifting quicksand
Sucking up grainy precious moments
Gritty resolve yielding to pressure

Muddy flotsam deluge has been
Cleared but ignominious deprivation continues
Present tense surveying vanquished past
Wayward adventurous spirits recklessly daring

Today’s major challenge is restoring
Trust confidence pride dignity respect
Rightfully making own prioritized choices
Surmounting aftermath struggle regaining control
