I Will Be Strong

    I Will Be Strong

    My tears-
    bitter are these,
    that fall within
    the night.
    Hidden from those
    a tool for use-
    to batter me down

    A whim,
    but for a moment-
    reflected in the eyes
    that see into tomorrow
    beyond their shield of lies.

    I cannot give
    my trust away
    to those I do not know.
    Cold and empty
    without repentence;
    or so the story goes.

    This life we live
    is not easy-
    the path is steep
    and long.
    And just beyond the horizone
    dances the rewards
    we have worked
    so hard for.

    I'll travel my journey
    without a guiding light.
    For within this dream
    only I can see
    and reach my home
    this time.

    To cry but not to break......perhaps? To slip, but not to fall...? I like the line [I cannot give my trust away to those I do not know] making them earn it. The lonely work hard for their reward indeed. Perhaps it is what keeps them going. Or perhaps it is the only road they know.

    Very well written. I enjoyed this poem. Thank you.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
