You Will Never See Me Fall

You may see me struggle
but you won't see me fall.
Regardless if I'm weak or not
I'm going to stand tall.
Everyone says life is easy
but truly living it is not.
Times get hard,
people struggle
and constantly get put on the spot.
I'm going to wear the biggest smile
even though I want to cry.
I'm going to fight to live
even though I'm destined to die.
And even though it's hard
and I may struggle through it all.
You may see me struggle...
but you will NEVER see me fall.

This is really good for people who are disabled and need help. This can help them to believe that life is something you smile about because God made you and he made you perfect it's you who change God's creation.

I have been low with feelings of "I am tired" and I felt I needed a boost, so I decided to go for inspirational poems and here it comes with lots of encouragement. I'm promising myself that I am going to stand tall and stand still and see the victory of God.

This year, I lost several people in my life and they meant so much to me. After all that, things went down hill, fast. I was taken away from my family. Well, my dad. I was put in a shelter. Lost hope, faith, I felt betrayed. I didn't have anything. Now, I am in a broken foster care system and it gets harder by the minute. I stay strong though it is very hard. Especially with it being close to Christmas time. I want to let out a huge thank you to these people who created this. Brought me what I needed.

I lost my mom when I was twelve, my dad owns a store in a mall and he never let me go out with friends. I only have one friend, her name is Ally, I met her in kindergarten and she was like a sister. I met a boy, Calvin, he is really nice with me and I have a crush on him. But these days I messed up everything with my friends, I also love dancing but I was so sad that I fell and my ankle hurts me. I thought I should just give up but this poem inspired me a little, my mom never gave up and became the mall manager. If my mom never fell so I won't fall! Thanks for this poem!

I am a 44 years old man and even thought I have lived a good life, there were times in my life when I wanted to dropped the ball and throw the towel. I can proudly say that I never did. I can stand tall because I have G-d with me always holding me in His arms. My friends, there will always be difficulties whether young or old, man or woman, it does not matter. The good thing is that we have G-d and we have each other to encourage us. Thank you to FAMILY FRIEND POEMS for allowing us to share OUR joys and problems.

This poem is one truly beautiful poem with a very beautiful message. I can relate to it. It reminds me of the lyrics of some songs of Linkin Park who give similar messages. Continue with writing these amazing poems.

Whenever I want to cry, I get embarrassed and don't cry at all. It is bad for me but then it all leads up to depression and yeah. Make sure you cry whenever you want and never feel let down or anything. Friends are there for you, not to just socialize with you!!!
Hope all goes well :)

My parents divorced when I was six, my father used drugs and abused my mother causing a miscarriage, they were together ten years, I have one sister, two brothers. After they split my mother tried to take care of us best she could, my father abandoned us. Through those times my mother was a alcoholic and became very abusive mentally and physically, I started taking care of my newborn sibling at the age of ten, also the others. I had to learn to cook, clean and take care of her children because they weren't capable of there own responsibilities so I felt I had to step up because there was no one else. My father popped in and out every seven years or so, no phone calls, cards nothing. I didn't have a childhood, everyday of my life was a struggle, I wanted to give up but the love for god, my siblings and myself kept me going. To this day is a struggle but I stand tall as I've always done, yes I've cried, but never fell to where I cant get back up, I hope this helps someone that's experienced the same thing!
