Strength; In Various Genre.

Updated on September 15, 2012

Strength ;from where does it come?

How do we find it?

Is it really there for us ?

As most of you know I began writing here on hub pages almost three years ago,a few months after the passing of my beautiful daughter Erin.

Also so very often I write tributes for my kind , caring and so musically gifted sister Val who also lost her life back in 1999.

Writing has always been my saviour from way back to when I was a little girl living in the midst of cruelty at home.

I often think to myself:

Should I mention that all the time ?

Should I write tributes to my loved ones all the time ?

Should I this ?

Should I that?

My answer today is

Yes I should ;as this is what has made me the person that I am today.

For the rest of my days on this earth Erin and Val are with me deep in my heart each and every day; I so proudly want to tell the world about them.

Plus if I am not totally honest then how is my story going to help others.

Others who are grieving and their days so dark.

Others who find that abuse of any kind is stopping them leading their life as they deserve.

To be able to live our lives as a whole person is our right and no one has the right to take it away from us .

I hope you all enjoy my poems in various genre below.

I have also created some collages ofsome of my favourite haunts and flowers through which at times I find solace and inspiration .

These were created from a trial version of Microsoft reasearch Auto Collage which I was so happy with.

I hope you enjoy!!

Acrostic Poetry;Strength.

Searching for that guiding hand

To find and grasp

Reaching out beyond our comfort zone

Every step forward a positive

Nearly there ;just a few steps more

Grasping at first tenacious

To step out and to become a winner

Heartfelt emotions as we cross that winning line.


Source

Haiku Poetry;Strength.

Hang on to that hand

So full of strength and self worth

Others may follow.

Source

Rictameter Poetry;Strength.

A strength

Is within grasp

A path we find through life

Take my hand you may follow me

An inspirational journey I share

A journey at times so painful

The path at times rocky

You will then find

A strength.

Source

Freeverse;Strength.

Sometimes we may walk

life's tempestuous

and often so rocky

paths

do we carry on

do we turn back

to stay in the same place

a breather

a rest;

to retrace old steps

a no go

never to be undertaken.

Stumble

pick yourself up;

Not to stay in fallen crouch

to arise

to learn

to resume

that vital journey

as essential to me as breathing;

as wondrous as a mysterious vapour

which coccoons

protects

and fils our hearts

with

STRENGTH

the wonders of our world

the beauty of our days

are

for us;

find that strength

keeping grasping

that leading hand

that light

which

inspires us forward

with an ease

so wondrous

so slender

so tender

but oh so needed.

Emerge that winner

and

with others share that

STRENGTH!!

Source

Today I have travelled my road ;found the strength but I will never stop learning.

Through my journey two very important words came to me;

Expectance and Acceptance !!!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend.

Eddy.

      One of my pet subjects, Eddy. We need a support system when we are down....but whether we have one or not, the one above must be turned to to provide that support. Your poem made me think of this today!! Thanks for sharing, and I share as well.

      Eddy, what a power piece you have here! First, I must comment, the collages are beautiful. I've always loved the gardens you've shown in your posts. I know you have tended them with loving care!

      I can't help but notice each of your poems of finding strength have the resounding theme of 'taking my hand'. This is so true. Whether it's taking the hand of a friend, or of God, or of your inner self, we all need a hand to hold us steady on the unsteady path of finding and grabbing ahold of our inner strength.

      I'm so pleased to see you finding yours! You're an awesome lady, Eddy and I am SO GLAD YOU'RE BACK!
