Poem About Enduring The Hardships You Face In Life

I love my niece very much, but sadly, my sister took her to live far away. My heart breaks when I talk to her on the phone because she is going through a tough time, and I can't comfort her. I wrote this poem for her on her 10th birthday.

Endure Like A Tree

Published: May 2015

To get through life you have to endure as a tree does.
When Mother Nature tries to bring you down,
You will never fall; you will stand your ground.
You will encounter burning flames.
Yes, it will be painful and hard,
But once it's over and done with,
Your bark will grow back stronger than ever.
When your leaves start to slowly leave,
Never fret, there will be more to take their place.
They'll come and go throughout your life,
That's just how it is.
From the time you're a seedling to the time you're mature,
Your roots will always be there to support you.
After many years,
After enduring forest fires and changing leaves,
Your own saplings will fall away to start anew.
Then you'll know not to worry,
They'll grow into tall, strong trees,
Just like those before you.

Hello I am Salih Abass. I lost my father while I was very young, and I was taken away from my mother to my grandmother even before I was two years. She took me to school. I lost my grandmom at 14. Then I was finally living with another family. I don't have any elder brother or sister. I spent my schooling in sufferings. After my high school graduation I decided to go and search for my mother in another country and thanked God ‘cause I found her. She is poor, but most of her family is rich, and I needed help so that I may further my education, but unfortunately no one helped me. Finally I travelled to another native country to find a job and help my mother and my young sisters and brother, but thank God I found a job and am now able to help my mother little by little, but frankly speaking, I want to become rich and helpful to all who need it because I don't want anyone to suffer like I did.

This poem really spoke to me. I like the fact that you said "Your roots will always be there to support you". This like says that your family will always be there to help you thru whatever you need us for. This personifies what family is all about.
