Empowered - Poem by Phantom Anonymous

The strength to rise from the pain,
to continue at all cost,
The strength to prolong all the shame,
Knowing that you've lost,
The strength to smile, when all you feel is anger,
to substitute bad days, for the best ones you can remember,
The strength to say 'I'm lost' when your pride has blocked your sight,
to say 'please love me', though I've never done it right,
The strength to say you love them, knowing there may be no reply,
to stay by their sides at times, when all they do is cry,
the strength to try again after many times of failing,
to finally open up after many years of waiting,
The strength to fall in love, though sacrificing your heart,
to keep a loved one close while knowing you've grown apart,
The strength to say ' I love you' when all else has gone wrong,
to keep on waiting for you..... regardless of how long,
