A Poem- I have fallen
You can- You will!
There is dignity in surviving after you fall.
And strength when standing back up.
It is not about never falling down- It is about getting back up and trying again!
I have fallen,
I have dropped,
I have tumbled down,
And tripped when I tried to stand up.
I have fallen from grace,
Risen back up,
To regain my strength.
I have dropped to my knees,
Bowed my head in shame,
Joined my hands together,
And remembered how to pray.
I have tumbled from the top,
Taken the hard way down.
I created my own hell,
Without a doorway to get out.
I have tripped on my feet,
And landed face first in the ground,
Cloaked in humiliation,
I let my fears shut the world out.
There have been times I did not know,
Which way was up or which way was down.
So I crawled on the floor,
And became who it is I am now.
Even in the darkest of hours,
I found my strength to hold on,
And I fought through the pain and challenge,
To write the lyrics of my life’s song.
I have taken life’s poisons.
I have spiraled around.
I searched within my silence,
Before I discovered a way to make a sound.
I have fallen,
I have dropped.
I found my voice,
Now I am standing up.
Face the future, and let go of the past.

Look me in the eyes, Before you tell me what you see. Can you see my memories, And the times I’ve been made to bleed? Can you hear the hurt, I have buried deep inside? A pain I can’t forget, But one I...
- On the other side of Reality
The world we are leaving for our tomorrow's You can find me on the other side of reality. It is a place not much different than the place where you live. You still have responsibilities and must work to get ahead. But on the other side of...
- I'm in No Mood to be Typical
As we are children, we often fear the different and aim to be ordinary. As a woman, I no longer hope for such, I aim for something bigger, I'm in no mood to be typical, a poem by H.C Porter.
