About the Poem
This poem was written at a point in my life that I despise, but would go through time and time again because it only changed me for the better. Every thing in my life was changing. A very close friend of two years had decided that because I could not make it to her birthday party, that I was no longer a worthy friend. This hurt the both of us as much as it made us angry. After three weeks of not speaking to each other I received a letter from her. It was a poem. Those two short verses hurt me more than ever at that point in my life. That very day I wrote her a poem in response to hers. She has yet to receive it, though she has read it many times. This is the poem that helps me get through my "rocky roads of life. "
Faith, Hope, And Heart
|by Nicci Pagan
|I was once told only in dreams
Do dreams come true.
But I'm to tell, here and now,
Your dreams are up to you.
Like "The Rose",
we may pass through life
And maybe we won't
make all the friends we should.
But always treasure what you have
and in the mirror what you see,
Then strive to get all you can
and be all that you may be.
On the rocky roads of life,
you must be strong to fall apart.
But, I tell you from my soul to keep
Faith, Hope, and Heart.
