  4. The Strength In You

    • By Blake Auden
    • Published by Family Friend Poems April 2021 with permission of the Author.

    I’ve spent my entire adult life struggling with anxiety, always worrying about the worst case scenario. Even now I don’t know how to love something without being terrified of losing it. If I’m honest, some days I feel like I’m built entirely of glass.
    But I think there may be something profound in suffering; in the realisation that you’re stronger than you thought. I think back to the things I’ve been through, and while those experiences left their mark, I take solace in the fact that I’m still here; still pulling breath into these lungs. Maybe strength is a label that’s only earned from resilience; from enduring.
    The truth is, I had no idea how much I could take until the world showed me. There is strength here, even if I never wanted to find it.

    in Poems about Life Struggles

    There is
    a strength in you
    you haven’t even
    begun to find.

    So true in that we really don't know how one will react until one has been there and has done it! Suffering is an important life experience. Great poem, thanks.

  9. You're Better Off Without Me

    • By Blake Auden
    • Published by Family Friend Poems April 2021 with permission of the Author.

    I often picture what it would be like to see you again. To hear your voice, or feel the weight of your hand in mine. I rehearse what I'd say to you, whether or not I'd tell you about the poetry, how I'd reply if you asked me if I was happy, yet.

    But the truth is I'll never tell you any of it. I won't call or find my way to your door. As much as I miss you, I know that you will want to love me - to pick up the pieces of me and hold them together, the way you always used to. And we'll end up back where we were, with you ignoring how much it hurt to try and love me - still giving even when there's nothing left for me to take.

    If we're honest, we both know you're better off without me. If I really want you to be happy, then I have to accept that it means being far away from me. So I will love you from a distance, even if that means you believe the worst of me.

    I’ve written you
    so many letters
    I won’t send.

    Have you ever had a final moment with someone that you wish you could change?

  13. Trying To Balance Grief

    • By Liz Newman
    • Published by Family Friend Poems May 2021 with permission of the Author.

    One of the biggest things I’m learning about grief is how it demands different things from you every day. Some days, you’re able to get a lot done. You’re able to smile and be fully present with people. Everything feels fully balanced and manageable...steady. But other days, even normal daily tasks feel impossible to balance. And despite your best efforts, you can’t do it all. You try and build your schedule to match the day before, but it wobbles and leans and comes crashing down at your feet.

    Grief will demand different things of you every day. Some days will be harder than others, but please don’t be harder on yourself because of it. The harder days need the most kindness, the most support, the most gentleness. The harder days need the most grace. If today is a harder day, I’m praying with you. I’m hurting with you. I’m holding on to hope with you.

    Itself up
