And I Will Rise Again—A Tribute To The Human Spirit

This is a poem to recount the exemplary inner strength, courage and the indomitable spirit, of the Human race.

In many adverse situations from time to time, human beings have shown admirable adaptability, perseverance, patience, immense courage and inner strength, which even they didn’t know, they had.

History provides us with many such examples and incidents, to show the incredible inner power of the human beings. The good and the positive news is, that the Human race has survived, and moved forward.

’I’ is meant to represent the Human Beings, in the poem.

And I will Rise Again—Poem.

In joyful times, and in adverse times.

In the times of despair, and calamity,


I have stood up, and faced challenges,

I have never lost, my capacity to smile,


I have never failed, to inspire others,

I have compassion, and kindness,


I am affectionate, and have warmth,

I have the ability to admire, and respect,


I am committed, and have patience,

I have perseverance, and resilience,


I am helpful, I am thankful,

I can smile, through the tears,


I can stumble, but have adaptability,

I have the strength, to handle setbacks,


I have determination, and dedication,

I have empathy, and positivity,


I have lived, endured, all through history,

I have seen despairs, fears, anxieties,


I will again survive, and heal,

I will again rise, and make new choices,


I have the Supreme inner strength,

I am the creation of the ‘Supreme.’

The blossoming of a flower, signifies ‘Hope’

So a lovely and inspiring poem ma'am.. strongly manifests the survival of each & every being that adorns this cosmos.. The line that I would like to emphasize to have loved especially is... " I can smile through the tears " ... This line again seems to signify the extreme valour that especially the women exhibit in their life as they go through various difficult circumstances..
