When Things Get Harder - Poem by Marlene Rashidi
I want you to make me feel like a warrior
not like a failure.
Pat me on my back and advise me to try
When things get harder.
Tell me that I can depend on you
tell me that I don't have to give up.
Always remind me of how strong I can be
and how I can fight my weak flesh.
Look at me dead in the eye and promise
to always be my motivator.
Promise me that you won't look down at me.
When things get harder make sure my
path is clean and clear. Make sure that I don't
stumble over thorns and stones. I beg you
look out for me.
Be my leader to the ladder that will get me higher
to where I'm going.
When things get harder for me just always be
by my side.
