Spread The Sunshine | Personal Poetry



As part of my 'Spread The Sunshine' campaign, I thought I'd share some poetry that I have written in the hope that it may help some of you who are struggling. It is very personal to me, as I have written this by myself, through experience but I hope that you enjoy it and you see a new side of me that may actually help you. 





This first poem is incredibly important to me and also a very personal one. I have often had times where I have felt as though I can't go on anymore; like living is just an impossible task. I know that many people feel the same and so I wanted to share this poem through experience and in the hope that it may help some of you who are struggling with similar thoughts at this moment in time. I promise that you do have the strength to get through this. Too often, we doubt ourselves and we tend to forget how strong we actually are. If we persevere and we don't give up, then we are capable of achieving anything, no matter how hard it may seem at the beginning. The haters are worth nothing. Even if you are having a bad day today, you have to hold on and remember that everything will be okay. Please keep fighting and show that world and yourself what you are made of. You can do anything.
Another poem about strength is this next one that I wrote yesterday. Even though things may seem difficult and unbearable within this particular moment, they won't be like that forever. As cliché' as it may sound to you, things do get better and they won't be this way forever. You are a fighter and this is one of the many battles that you will face during your lifetime. Fighters don't give up, do they? They keep on going until their very last breath. That is exactly what you must do. Pain is only temporary, but quitting lasts forever. Things will only get better if you make a change.
In the generation of today, people are so quick to judge and they are so thoughtless. Sometimes, we are incredibly selfish and we don't think about what other people may be going through, or how they may be feeling. There are so many wars, conflicts and arguments and it really makes me ever so upset to think that some people are just letting things carry on like this. If we don't do our individual bit to contribute to an international change, then how are we supposed to expect peace and united love? It's the little things that count the most and have the largest effect. Ask people how they are feeling, offer them a shoulder to cry on, give your loved ones gifts out of the kindness of your heart. If we all start to help each other more and show a little more sympathy, the world will be a better place.
We are all addicted to something that numbs the pain we feel. Some of us may have experienced self-harm, alcohol issues, drugs, violence towards other people; the list goes on. It gives us a temporary release for a problem(s) that may seem permanent at the time. Sometimes we can be so overwhelmed by sadness and anger that we don't think about our actions, or what we say during that particular time. Harming yourself or the person that is making you feel so much pain and hatred towards the world may seem like a solution and a release at first, but really, it causes more problems in the future. In the long run, these addictions are only doing you more damage. Whereas if you spoke to someone and you got support or a shoulder to cry on, then your problems could have been sorted. Please put down the blade, alcohol, drugs, your fist or whatever else it may be that you are using as an escape. Distract your mind and calm yourself down before acting irrationally. You don't want to ruin YOUR life because of other people, do you? You are worth so much more than that. I promise.

 


We must all hold onto hope. We must all wish for happiness. If we hold onto hope and wish for positive things to come, then there is a greater chance that it will happen as we will be more motivated. Hope is such an important thing to have. You should be grateful and happy about the little things in life. One day, all of your dreams will come true. If you work hard and you try your very best, then you will get to succeed and be able to do what you really want to do. If you give up, then you won't get anywhere, because you haven't tried hard enough. You have to keep going and then you will get to where you want to be.


Finally, I want to share one of my older poems with you all. Here I'm trying to explain that I know what it feels like to constantly get put down and get called all the names under the sun. There is so much pressure within today's society to look and act a certain way. But, you just need to remember that you are worth so much more than what society is making you out to feel like. You are unique and you are a true gift to the world. If you were not alive, then the world wouldn't be how it is today. Things wouldn't be the same. So many people's lives would be destroyed and torn apart. I love and believe in each and every one of you. I know that it can be an overwhelming struggle sometimes, but we are all in this together and we are all fighting our own individual battles. I know you might be broken and I know that you might want to give up, but you are all equally as important to me and I need you to fight. I promise you, you are so much more important and valued than you think you are. I am so, so proud of how far you have all come and even if you haven't managed to smile today, then smile now for me, precious. A smile looks gorgeous on you. So, no matter who you are, I want you to make a personal promise to me and yourself. That promise is that you will stay strong through no matter what and you will keep on fighting and ask me, or anyone else for help if you feel you would benefit from it. I'm always here for any of you that may need it, whether it's for a general chat, or for a heart-to-heart about your problems! We are all part of a community here and we are all going to support, motivate and help each other. I know that you are all capable of wonderful things, my lovelies. Don't let anyone or anything stand in the way of you, your dreams and your future.
