The Power Inside You


In times of weakness

In times of the unknown

Finding the strength inside

Can be deafening

The more you know

The more you will see

Through failure comes

Excellence and victory

Strength risen from misery

Do not listen to outside sources

That are mistaken for wisdom

They do not know what they are doing

Listen to the voice buried deep

That voice has many lessons hidden inside

There is a light burning deep inside you

It will help you when times get tough

Never give up your strength

Never give up on hope

You will know when to hold on

You will know when to let go

You are never alone

Finding your wings

The strength of a thousand bulls

That power inside you

Will guide you through

To the end of time

Through the darkest hours

It will hold on

In secret


Letting you know

This is fantastic. Every line is encouraging and I feel motivated reading this poem out loud.I feel like it's a bit of a reflection on life and how it can get you down but if you believe and fight for your goals then you will accomplish something incredible. Excellent poem

We all have it, it comes from spirit. The spirit that connects us with God, the spirit that is all one.

Strength seems to come from somewhere when we feel the weakest! Wherever it comes from - we need all be grateful for it...
