Strength

Out there I see a world
full of hope,
people with options
to chose from,
who can be
what they want to be;
My street is of the gifted,
people with answers for
every “how” and “if”, but me.

I was terrible at volleyball
couldn’t even sing,
I tried to learn them all
yet failed at everything.

I put people first
and end up second,
not the best choice,
Lonely in the crowds,
hid in the corners
with my choking voice.

I do believe in that one voice
in my heart that, something mine is somewhere out there
waiting for me to find a way;
With every word leaving my fingers
I try to find my strength,
every passing day.

    That is powerful and so true! Finding and holding onto our strengths is what can keep us going! I hope you are having a good day and holding onto your own strengths!! 😸

  2. This is beautiful! I don’t know if it’s autobiographical or not, but know that you are not alone. That voice you believe in is your Creator, calling you to the life He created you for – the reason He gave you such an awesome gift for expressing yourself. I pray you hear His voice today and will be extremely blessed! ❤

  3. For me, you already found your strength. You are writing and fighting. And from this strength you can achieve more and get more strength. And should this be “just” art, it is beautiful art.

  4. Beautifully soft but also honest expression of longing. You are trying to find your way, which is the aspiration we all have. Words and pen are two tools for crafting that unique voice of yours, and as I am now following your blog I look forward to discovering more of your soul in the poems and prose you share with the world.
