Short Poems

Hope in the Darkness

As the darkness surrounds me
And I feel lost in despair
I hold onto a glimmer of hope
That someday, I’ll make it there

The road may be long and winding
And the path may be steep and rough
But I won’t give up, I’ll keep on grinding
Till I reach the mountain top

For in the darkness, there is still light
And in the depth of pain, there is still might
So I’ll keep on fighting, I’ll keep on striving
Till I emerge from the darkness, fully alive.

Rising from the Ashes

When life knocks me down
And I feel like giving up
I remember the phoenix rising
From the ashes, out of the dust

For like the phoenix, I too
Can rise above the fray
I can overcome the odds
And find my strength every day

Though it may be hard at times
And the journey may be long
I know that the fire within me
Will keep me going strong

So I rise from the ashes
Renewed, wiser, and more free
For I am a survivor
And nothing can stop me.

Healing the Wounds

The wounds of the past still hurt
And the scars still run deep
But with a little love and nurturing
They will eventually heal and sleep

For healing is not always easy
And the process can be slow
But with patience and self-care
We can mend our broken souls

We don’t have to carry the pain forever
Or let it define who we are
For with resilience and determination
We can go so much far

So let us take the steps needed
To heal the wounds of the past
And embrace the beauty of life
With a renewed sense of purpose and trust.

The Power of Love

Love has the power to heal
To mend the broken, wounded soul
To bring light to the darkest of days
And make us feel whole.

For when we are surrounded by love
And feel cherished and accepted
We can conquer the toughest of battles
And rise above the pain inflicted.

Love is not just an emotion
It’s a force that can move mountains
It’s a reminder of our own strength
And the beauty of life’s fountains.

So let us never underestimate
The power of love to heal and renew
For it is the key to our happiness
And the path to a future that’s true.

Medium Poems

1. “Emerge Stronger”

In the darkest depths of despair,
Where hope seemed to have vanished into thin air,
I found the strength to carry on,
To rise up again, and greet the dawn.

I stumbled and fell, countless times,
But with each fall, I learned to climb,
Higher and higher, with every step,
Resilience burning in my chest.

The scars on my heart, a testament,
To the battles fought and won,
I stand tall, unbreakable,
A survivor, second to none.

2. “Broken Pieces”

Shattered and broken,
Lying in a heap,
My heart in pieces,
Difficult to keep.

I thought I’d never heal,
From the pain that I had felt,
But slowly, surely,
My heart began to melt.

The pieces bit by bit,
Fitted back together,
Each one a precious part,
Of a soul that would weather,

The storms that came my way,
With grace and dignity,
A survivor, shining bright,
Rising up from adversity.

3. “Healing Waters”

Beneath the surface,
Lies a world so vast,
A place where I find,
Peace that will forever last.

The waters cool and calm,
Wash away the pain,
I dip my toes in,
And feel the healing again.

These waters are a balm,
To my weary soul,
A place where I can rest,
And find the strength to be whole.

The journey may still be long,
But I know I have the tools,
To ride the waves that come,
And emerge victorious and anew.

Long Poems

Standing Strong

I am a survivor
Strong and fierce
I’ve been through the worst
But still persevere

My past is filled with pain
Trauma and hurt
But my strength and resilience
Is what keeps me alert

I’ve been knocked down
But I get back up
I refuse to let life
Fill my heart with corrupt

The memories may haunt me
But they don’t define me
I choose to focus on
The good things that I see

The sun shining bright
The birds singing sweet
The laughter of children
As they play with their feet

I have scars on my body
And scars on my soul
But they remind me
That I am whole

Though the road was long
And the journey never-ending
I am proud of myself
For never surrendering

I stand tall and strong
In all my glory
Thankful for my resilience
And my survival story

I am a survivor
And always will be
I choose to live my life
With strength, courage, and glee.
