'This too shall pass'



Stuck in the arena
Of sharp, pointed thorns
Pricking, jabbing, bleeding
I walk, refusing to halt.
With the thought, 
'This too shall pass'
I know I will survive.
The old scars
Which have left their indelible marks
Provide me courage today,
They remind me of my survival tales
So I walk, refusing to stop
I let myself bleed
With the thought
'This too shall pass'
I know I will survive.

  3. I often think 'This too shall pass' as well. It is a useful phrase in getting through difficult times & is, indeed, true. You also made a point about continuing to walk. So important as well. We can't stand still, give up. Must continue the journey.

  5. Yes. My mantra during the hardest years was "it will get better". And it always did. Great poem of survival, and transcending.

  6. This is so beautifully penned dear with an all the more great message. No matter how bad situations turn around us, we should realize those are temporary pains that would subside with time. As you say,"This too shall pass". :')

  8. How important it is to get up, brush yourself down and start over; a lesson has been learned and will not be forgotten.

  9. This is such a motivating poem dear. The journey which we all are going through becomes easier with time and having people around. We all try to reach a place where after all these toil, we can sit and look back and feel now it all makes sense. :-)

  11. When the world's crashin' down
    When I fall and hit the ground
    I'll just turn myself around
    Don't you try to stop me!
    I, I won't cry

    Awesome poem dear :)

  14. So true....we gnaw at those old scars, failing, at times, to realize - these are the ones that lend us support, allow us to cling onto, when the beatings of life make us wilt.....Nicely penned!
