Hang on ( a poem of inspiration)

Updated on May 27, 2015
Just hang on...
Just hang on...
a new day comes with the sun...hang on...
a new day comes with the sun...hang on...
Reach down deep inside...where your strength does reside...hang on...
Reach down deep inside...where your strength does reside...hang on...
Never give up...or give in...you have the strength to win again...hang on...
Never give up...or give in...you have the strength to win again...hang on...
Rest assured in the night...no harm to come..so chase the fright...hang on...
Rest assured in the night...no harm to come..so chase the fright...hang on...
Better days to lie ahead...as by our strength we are led..hang on...
Better days to lie ahead...as by our strength we are led..hang on...



When life slaps you in the face...things seem wrong,

You're without any disgrace, just hang on.

When tomorrow seems lost,

And your best dreams are tossed, just hang on.


When you fall down...get up off the ground...

Do hang on, my friend, it's going around.

Everyday is a new one, to shine like the sun...

Bad days gone, you're not alone, in what is done. hang on...


You're not helpless...reach down deep inside...

Where your strength does reside..yes you can,

Your every sinew, and every thread...

The best to come, without any dread, hang on...


Your soul is strong, with good to right every wrong...

Have faith in yourself, just hang on,

There's no "I can't", a part of you,

In every thing you say or do..better days are ahead...hang on!


I wrote this for a young person who had doubts about her future...I hope she gains a fresh perspective as she reads...

      This is a wonderfully uplifting poem and I am glad to read it. Voted up and many more.

      The rhythm reminds me a bit of Craig Ferguson's TV theme ...Tomorrow's just a future yesterday....Makes me smile.

      It is a lovely poem whonu and it has meaning so unless she is very negative about life then I would say that it will help her.

      I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

      I like the jaunty rhythm of this poem. Of course the message is timeless. When on a bad streak this is the way to go. Sometimes the real winners are simply those that hang on during hard times and do not quit.

      Whonu, this brought to mind what I've done all my life: picked myself up by the bootstraps and carried on.

      I hope your young friend reads this. It's a great message for not only the young, but anyone who feels overwhelmed or who experiences a few steps back just when you think you've made forward strides.

      This is an important message and a strong reminder for us all. Thank you!
