Pearly loves reading poems of Edgar Allan Poe to Lewis Caroll and that moved her to write poems also.
Shine! For you're not a coward
Fight! Because you're a warrior
Stand! You are strong!
And conquer! Because you are powerful.
Deep inside lurks our own demons
Swallowing the life that we have
Chasing us until we can't breath
And the same scenario goes over and over again.
This constant tremors is a suicide
Killing softly, as if languidly stabbing us
All hopes are wilting one by one
What we could just do is scream for it to stop.
Fear is an entity
Powerful, controlling our body and soul
Yet why let it take over,
When there's a way to save you?
Shine, because you're not a coward
You very well know that
That you have that fighting spirit
Every challenges, you can beat.
Fight, you are a warrior
To slash those ugly nightmares
To crumple the old you who was afraid
To guard and keep what you are fighting for.
Stand, because you are strong
Towering again after so many challenges
Learn how to keep yourself upright
You should not be limping, stand up.
Conquer, because you are powerful!
Because you can shine, fight and stand
You are capable bringing the real you
To stop those who are chasing you.
You are a sunshine
Just dulled by the voices drowning you
Aiming to tackle you down
But you got all the power to throw them out.

Beautiful poem. I constantly struggle, as of late, with personal demons-- depression, anxiety, stress. Reading things like this always seem to take the edge off and I greatly appreciate your work. Thank you. :-)
