I Know Poem by Lyn Paul

I Know

Rating: 5.0


I know I have not cried out loud
Yet I have sung my song
For I have always known
Just where I do belong

I know I can climb any mountain
I know I can sail the seas
I know I am here for a reason
And I know I truly believe

I know that life can be hard
Yet I know you must get up and fight
Fight for what is wrong
Fight for what is right

I know there are so many troubled
And I wish I could help them all
I know there is a way
To catch them before they fall

I know there is always a way
To change what may seem wrong
And You must know
Know that you do belong

I have not written these words for me
I have penned these words for I care
For those who feel unworthy
For those whose life seems unfair

We know that life is changing
Too quickly for what we need
Some are amazing changes
Yet some so full of greed

So may we all know
That we are all here for the sunset to rise
We know we must live for freedom
To be you
To be me
To Survive

The second last stanza is the scary part. You go direct to the heart of things Lyn.

... a beautiful poem that shows your concern for the people that you love... life has never been easy for anyone... some stands tall even after going through the tough times of their life.. and some falls even from a small problem..its how we take up these challenges that decides our fate ..

A Heartfelt poem Lyn. Beautiful flow of words from a loving and a caring heart, who want to help all and who wants to share the pains of all. Beautiful flow of words..... I have not written these words for me I have penned these words for I care For those who feel unworthy For those whose life seems unfair It seems that words are just poured out from your loving and caring heart. Loved reading it.
