SURVIVOUR

Some people laugh
some people cry
I want to laugh now
I have shed
enough tears

Some feel high
some feel low
I was made to feel low
now I will walk
high in life

Some people rise
some people fall
I will rise after every fall
I fell and learned to stand up
after falling

Some people move on
some give up
I had given up once
now
I will move on and carry on with my life

Some people pray
some people curse
I tried not to curse anyone
but now I pray
people who hurt me, be happy

Some people forgive
some avenge
revenge is tempting
but I choose to forgive
everyone for the tears they caused me

Some people rejoice
some mourn
for long I mourned for yesterday
now I rejoice
the new life I am living
every single day
with liberty
hopeful for a better tomorrow

Some are winners
some losers
I felt like a victim
a loser
but I drew energy
from my pain
learned to face life and live on
and I realized
I was a winner all along
a surviour

  1. I liked this poem and its theme…but must admit that “And They Held Me” is hard to get out of my mind…both poems are very good…thanks for sharing this one….I look forward to reading more from you.

  2. Wow, yet another lovely poem. Loved the optimism you portray through this poem. Why didn’t I write it before you did. Haha…but yeah it is wonderful piece as always.

    Keep it up. Let the poetic juice flow from your pen.
