Growth comes with changes…

By HandsomelouiiThePoet (Lonzo ward)Published 6 months ago Updated 6 months ago 1 min read

I was Bruised

I felt Broken-

I was Blinded

But I kept Going-

This is my Life

I didn’t choose it-

It was given to me

I’m a Blessing -

I had to dig down inside,

And I drank down

My Pride…

So I can Function!

My Blessings stand


For me, but

Still I

Gotta Function!

I was left out

At 17

Trying to

Find my



The Urban


With The Fighter

Soul inside of


I had to Function...

No Thought


Giving up...

My biggest


Was Too






Such a Thing,



By so

Much Misery?

But I

Had to

    This is a very good poem juxtaposing surviving with thriving. Well done!

  • We do what we have to do. To paraphrase what the martian says in "The Martian", all we have to do is solve the next problem. Once we've solved that one, we work on solving the next. If we solve enough of them, we get to survive.

  • This is so beautiful
