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" shows how one determines the outcome of life watching as the layers of the truth are revealed.

He understands he must move forward.


Finding love survives the darkest times.

He gains strength behind closed doors finding a path full of hope.

He has the strength to overcome weakness.

"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.
