Stronger - Poem by Aurora Lee

There are many things I never thought would happen,
That did.

Many dreams I dreamt again and again,
That came true.

Many words I only whispered out of fear,
That you heared.

Many places I wanted to go.
Now I've been there.

There was many times I wanted to quit.
Just lay down and cry.
But I didn't.

Days I thought there was no way to go on.
And I found one.

Fears I thought would always be there.
I fought them somehow.

Moments I wanted to hold on to forever.
I managed to let go.

But the dream of us, that memory,
An illusion of what can't be.

That's the one thing, I can't handle.
That's the thing that'll bring med down,

    This is a sincere poem with a feeling in tune with the present. The contrast is striking in the last words, suddenly turned to the past. Stylistically appreciable. (Report) Reply
