A Journey We Call Life

Alone and helpless
You feel as if you have lost the fight
But you must keep going
Heading towards the light
Even when you feel alone
When the darkness tries to over come you
Fight and fight some more
Do not let go
Keep pushing onward
As invisible hands try to pull you downward
Swim with all your might towards the surface
For there waits a hand to pull you up
To lift you from your pain and suffering
You must continue you on
There is a purpose for your life
You just have to find it
So keep searching
Keep heading down this rough and crumbling path
Hope waits at the end
Dreams along the way
You may stumble
You might fall
Pick yourself up
Dust yourself off
Lick those wounds
And carry on
We all have the strength
We all have the internal compass that guides us
Look within yourself
There you will find
Strength to move mountains
Fear of nothing
Push yourself as far as you can
Fight you battles with an open hand
Use wisdom in your choices
Knowledge in your step
Watch where your going
Beware of the snares that are laid to make you quit
One foot in front of the other
Cant see any farther then your hand
But lays ahead is magical
You just have to find the strength to stand
To keep pushing on
To finish what you have started
A journey we call life

The message in this poem is great! There is certainly wisdom and knowledge in each line. This is also very well written- I enjoyed reading it. Maybe you could review some of my poetry?

I really enjoyed the final 17 lines. It was there that I found the most emotion and the most heart! Great job though, keep writing.
