Back On My Feet! - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

It hurt even to crack a smile
or part my lips to speak,
So parched I was_
That I could not bear others
To know me so weak...

I tried my best to cover up
The infirmity of being late,
Summoning all remaining hope
Per chance to change this state...

So many steps taken backward
And not easily regained,
The pace forward,
Needed to be hastened,
Sparing life severely strained...

However, I resigned to be patient,
A doleful while longer,
Daring not to be recognized,
I hid until I grew stronger...

Now I am here,
Feeling as strong as steel,
Tasting a new life without fear,
Like the King of the Hill...

    I loved the beginning lines to this poem. We have all felt those emotions at one time or other in our lives. Keep up the great work. Captain Cur (Report) Reply

    “Patience and fortitude conquer all things” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson...and dare I say faith and trust must surely be mixed in there somewhere as well. I think that there are is a race of men (and women) that just roll over and die when they give up hope. I'm glad you didn't! (Report) Reply
