SPIRIT OF CHAMPIONS

Link

It has been said once
It has been said twice
But you still don’t arise
From the stupor
That you’ve immersed
Yourself in
In your efforts to
Blend in with the rest.
Don’t you know?
You are unique
One of a kind
It’s plain to see
That you are priceless
But you’ve not acknowledged
Your worth!
Look into the mirror,
Search your soul,
Refine your principles,
Give it one more try,
Stop thinking,
That the world
Owes you something
Coz it owes you nothing!
Life won’t offer a map,
But a compass

CHALLENGES
You need to get
To your Destiny
Through the
Trials,
Temptations,
And
Triumphs!
Arise
A new dawn beckons
Devoid of misgivings
And reservations
Push hard
Against the odds
Into world’s unknown
For you are endowed with
Never ending courage!
As you face another day
Summon
The spirit of champions
That lies within
For you deserve the best!

BREAK THE CHAINS

Link

Break the chains,
Take those pillars down
Turn on the lights!

chains

Sitting in the dark
Is a thing in the past!
Life goes on

It may ache
It may be difficult to recover
From the blows
That life has dealt
Onto your dreams;


You wish it would all go away
But that’s not how
Life unfolds!


Broken hearts,
Spilt milk,
Broken glass,
Whose impact
Cannot be erased!


It isn’t a sign of weakness
To reach out for help
Unwrap yourself,
From the suffocating cocoon;
Unveil the splendour
That has been dormant
For way too long!


Find the sparkle,
That you once had
Let it shine forth;


The first step you take
Is the longest stride
It’s
Worth the fight!

THOUGHTS GALORE

Aside

A thousand thoughts;
Race through my mind.
All form a simple reality.
A thousand shrads of pain,
All with one target;
My heart.
Miracles stay what they are,
Rare and far in between.
Illusions taunt me,
With glimpses of paradise.
Reality has me chained
To the realms of broken spirits.
From a distant source of comfort;
Symphony resonates
An eternity of resounding clarity and freedom!

IT GETS BETTER…WITH TIME

Standard

HOPE

… is a seed planted in our hearts.
Sometimes watered by tears,
it can grow into a glorious
tomorrow.

FAITH

… is knowing that in time,
in a few tomorrows, this painful
ache will fade to become
just a memory tucked away
in your heart.

LOVE

… embraces you in comforting
arms. May our Heavenly
Father hold you & those you love
safely in His tender care.

JOY

… will soon be back in your life.
Before long this difficult time
will be behind you & your days will
be filled with cheerfulness & delight
once again.

PS. I do not take credit for this poem…I noted it down a few years back and when I came across it I knew I just had to share.
