Courage poems by teens
- by Jamie Walker 59At the gates of Hell I stand,
Ready to enter as a man,
Sought out by the evil here,
It shall find me without fear.
Upon the road of fire and bone,
I'm forced to walk this path alone,
Haunted by his face of sin,
I begin to doubt I shall ever win.
Tortured souls of corrupted men,
Howl in the darkness without end,
This is a place no man should be,
With nowhere to run. Nowhere to flee.
A chilling growl approached from behind,
From the soulless creature I came to find,
I had become a gladiator upon his sand,
One last battle....one last stand.
- by Rihanna Boyd 58My pain feels like bones breaking,
Day after day.
I feel so stressed and tired,
that my hair may turn gray.
I keep on crying,
like an old tissue tatty and wear.
What if I don't get better,
That is my biggest fear.
I feel so dizzy, like I might fall down,
but no matter what my family has been around.
However lately I feel like I might give up,
as I have so many pills that they could fill up a cup.
This year hasn't been so great for me,
and not for a lot of my family.
My grandma is forgetting simple things,
like who she is and what she brings.
My uncle and best friend have cancer,
I wish somehow that they will both find the answer.
These horrible things are making me mad,
I love them so much it makes me sad.
Believe me I'm not trying to make it all about me,
I just don't know the last time my pain was a three.
All I've been getting is nines and nines,
there's no way this pain is in my mind.
Without god I would not be here,
he saved my life this year.
The pain is only a small price to pay,
as I wish to walk with my lord someday.
