Poem: "Standing Strong"

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Standing strong is about how no one can determine the outcome of life.

He watches as the layers of the truth are revealed, understanding he must move forward.

He finds love can survive the darkest times becoming stronger behind closed doors when he finds a new path that is full of hope. He is given the strength he needs to overcome any weak moments.

"Together (We'll Get Through This) by Steve Curtis Chapman

"Standing Strong"

Ocean calls the final wave,

life’s decision is unmade,

no turning back

the shell of comfort.


Forge ahead within the truth,

layers disappearing,

love survives the deepest depth

behind closed doors.


A new path

comes to light,

bringing hope beyond all challenges,

giving strength when weakness

tries to overcome.

"Stand In Your Love" by Josh Baldwin
