Poem: Strong Will

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

Strong Will is a poem about how others take her words lightly. They think she will easily cave and think their way, taking for granted her desires. They wait for her to cave, but she stands firm like a tenacious weed.

Strong Will

Her words lost

stifled in midair,

making light of her desires

taking for granted

her free will.


Doubting her stance,

going against her every breath

waiting for her to cave,

believing she lacks the courage

to hold her ground.


Seemingly, faint at heart

but strong to the core,

like a tenacious weed

her spoken communication stands firm.
