About the Poem
My life, although I haven't lived a great lot of it yet, has never really been easy. I wish I could express it as a picture, to try and make people understand. But I can't. It's an aurora of emotions. And no one can reach them - but me.
Sometimes I don't think I want to reach them. They hurt a lot and the pain is etched into my soul. Whatever I do, I will never, ever forget. All I can do is move on.
The Stronger Side
|by Andrea E. Holmes|
|I walked along the ocean,
my head bowed low in sorrow,
I hardly handled today,
how do I cope with tomorrow?
The day was like every other,
the pain the grief inside,
my strength was running out,
I could no longer hide.
The pain was immense that day,
it had never been that bad,
and all of a sudden, out of the blue,
I didn't feel as sad.
Something happened that day,
the weight became like a feather,
it'll never be entirely gone though,
the memories are there forever.
Although I still look back and cry,
I had a friend to confide,
She means the whole world to me,
She helped me reach the stronger side.
