Short Poems

1. “The Fighter”
Battered and bruised,
But still standing strong.
A survivor at heart,
Ready to move on.

2. “Rising Above”
Through the darkest of days,
I found strength to endure.
With a heart full of hope,
I rose above the allure.

3. “Warrior Spirit”
Torn apart but not defeated,
In my soul lies a warrior spirit.
Fierce and unyielding,
My survival instinct is infinite.

4. “Strength in Letting Go”
To let go may seem weak,
But sometimes it’s what we need.
It takes strength to say goodbye,
And move on with grace and speed.

Medium Poems

The Phoenix
From ashes, she rises
Born anew, she surprises
The wounds on her heart, she nurses
Her resilience, her greatest virtue, she assures us

With each passing moment, she makes a vow
To survive, and she will, somehow
Her spirit, unbreakable, unwavering
Her strength, simply amazing

She may have been burnt, but she’ll never perish
For she’s the Phoenix, and she’ll always flourish
Through the darkest hour, she’ll soar above
Her sense of hope, an unstoppable love

The Fighter
She’s fought through it all
Getting back up each time, after every fall
Her battles won’t steal her pride
Her pain, her scars, and her tears, she can always hide

She’s stronger than any storm
She’s weathered it all, uniform
She won’t be silenced by the world’s noise
Her heart, her voice, her greatest joys

She’ll push through every hardship and strife
For she’s the fighter, the one who’ll never give up in life
Her courage, a light that will never dim
Her will, unbreakable, a force within

The Survivor
She stands tall, a survivor
Carrying her past, but never a conniver
Her heart beats steadily, her soul serene
Her struggles, a part of her, but never too keen

She’s walked through fire and brimstone
Her fears and her demons, she’s outgrown
She’s a symbol of strength and hope
Her story, a testament to how she learned to cope

She’s a warrior, with a heart full of grace
Her journey, a vision of kindness in this chaotic space
Through it all, she stands steadfast
Her spirit, a light that will forever last.

Long Poems

A Survivor’s Manifesto

In the face of adversity, we stand strong
Though the road ahead may seem long
We’re not just survivors – we’re warriors, too
With a will to live that just won’t sue

We’ve faced our share of trials and pain
But we refuse to let it defeat us again
With every breath and every heartbeat
We push forward, refusing to retreat

We know what it takes to persevere
To hold onto hope in the face of fear
To dig deep and find the strength within
To conquer the battles we must win

For we’re survivors – through and through
And there’s nothing we can’t make it through
From the storms that rage outside
To the demons that we must fight

We’ve learned to be resilient and brave
To face the world and what it may crave
To keep moving forward, step by step
With a steadfast resolve that we’ll never forget

No matter what life may throw our way
We know we’ll survive another day
For we’re survivors – and that’s what we do
We rise above it all, and we make it through.
