What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger


She sits there in the silence,
Yet the noise in her head is so loud,
The anger and frustration she is longing to get out,
She has unanswered questions,
A lot of things she'd like to know,
But someone left her hanging there,
With nowhere else to go,
Limbo is a nasty place,
You have to take control,
And summon all your inner strength,
Don't ever just let go,
You turn the pain into a strength,
Take it everywhere you go,
But use it to your advantage,
So no one ever knows,
How empty that you feel inside,
The darkness in your heart,
The loneliness you long to leave,
Back there so far behind,
Yet you wear a smile on your face,
Never let them see the tears,
But in her eyes you see her dying,
Trying hard to keep afloat,
In the sea of sorrow she is drowning in,
Until a lifeline is thrown,
Her friends all gather round her,
To help her make it through the day,
If only she could turn it round,
She would start another day,
A deep breath in,
A long hard sigh,
She watches the hours flying by,
A friendly smile the squeeze of a hand,
They are all there behind her,
If she should fall,
But she is stronger than she thinks,
The time will make it easier,
To just get through the day,
And sooner than she thinks,
The pain will fade away,
Til she is right back up there,
Head and shoulders above the rest,
Then she will simply stand and shout,
I'm here world I did my best,
I survived the dark and painful days,
And the emptiness i felt,
But what's doesn't kill you makes you stronger,
Now I'm that without a doubt.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
