I dare - A poem of belief, courage and strength.


I dare keep dreaming,
although inside I feel a hollow.

I dare keep hoping,
despite the pain and sorrow.

My heart goes sinking, beneath the soiling dirt, I dare keep loving and moving past the hurt.

Behind the dark shadows, I see bright colors gleaming. They light my path of struggles, it helps keep me believing.

And in my fight, I dare be bold, I dare stand tall and give my all.

I dare keep moving and climbing the tallest towers, I know that they'll be someday, I'll dance in big bright sunshowers.


Note: If you are having a hard time, Don't stop daring. Keep hope alive, and if you grow weary and tired, dare to find the courage to keep moving forward.

Together we can!

  1. Dear Madison,

    Most thoughtful and you see beyond those dark shadows of doubt, of despair, those glowing beacons of colourful hope.

    Together, you, me, all of us, dare to embrace the positive possibilities, enhanced by us all being here for each other.

    Thank you, dear friend.

    In kindness and the gifts we share of empathy,

    Gary

  4. It's sometimes so hard to find the courage to keep going, but you're right. Sometimes we just have to keep moving forward. Even if it's a little slow going.

  14. Hi Madison!

    That is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for the encouraging words. I'm feeling down after going through some stressful days and your poem has given me some inspiration.

    The final lines are touching, I like how you ended the poem with positive words. Life sometimes could be so painful and going through the storm of life makes us weary and exhausted. But knowing that there's always sunshine at the end of the storm, we keep on walking. Having friends who sincerely encourage us makes us stronger.

    1. You are so right, Zunner. Knowing that there is sunshine at the end of storm helps keep me going. I'm so glad to see you, I hope your schedule is becoming less hectic. I had one of those exhausting, kind of stormy days, ironically there is actually a storm out, but just like the blizzard when its over and you wake up to the wonder of a snow covered earth, when our storms of life past we see a wonderous world ahead of us.

  15. Beautiful poem! It's so true that we have to keep going, no matter how low we're brought.

    There's a serious danger in staying immobile.

    Best of luck to you!
