The Sunshine Within Poem by Jojoba Mansell

The Sunshine Within

Rating: 4.4


On bleak days, with leaden skies,
when you don't know where to begin.
Your head hurts and your heart cries,
look for the sunshine within.

After dark dreams of panic and fear,
when you almost break, almost give in.
All hope smashed, dreams far from here,
look for the sunshine within.

On foul days, with no rest in sight,
and you cannot force a grin.
Remember be calm, it will be alright,
you have the sunshine within.

A message of hope flows through this wonderful poem, in other words don't give up. We've all had hard times and bad days, but we get through it eventually. Great poem!

Powerful and inspiration piece of poetry, well articulated and insightfully penned with lovely rhyme scheme. If ones faith cannot endure, one cannot endure. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
