Poetry is not just words. It is words that move you, calm you, and understand you. Poetry remains an ethereal connect for humans, allowing them to travel between reality and fiction on the back of imagination, hope, and beauty.
When life gets rough and you feel disheartened, here are a few poems to remind you that this too shall pass.
When you want to cry yourself to sleep
Tonight, I want you to the flood this room,
Let the bitterness go while you come afloat.
Tonight, I want you to rise above this sorrow and ask yourself:
Are we not carrying bruised hearts,
Are we not walking still?
Are we not surviving?
Are we not carrying storms already?
Why should we be afraid of rain now?
When you think you’ll never be able let go
What an adventure it must be, to find yourself by losing someone else.
When you feel lonely, remember that you are not alone
Is the gravel in your voice
from the wars your words wage before
they find a way to your mouth?
Are your half cut sentences,
questions you’re afraid to ask
or are they answers you evade?
I’ve been circling around you
trying to peek into every corner,
but it has left me dizzy
I could be the tomb for your silence,
you can bury your unsaid in me,
my words have died many deaths too,
When you feel like nothing is working out
The sun was in my palms this morning
the moon is swelling full tonight
The doors are open
possibility is making itself at home.
The windows are beaming golden
my arms are wide open with hope.
there are things I’m telling
the universe is listening,
it always is.
When you feel lost & confused
Start with the mall spaces,
indulge in the
pauses and breaks
dig through burrows,
reach a new place,
reinvent your name,
build yourself a home
look and you will find it:
