Courage Poem by Teens

Encouragement To Keep Going In Life

The story behind this poem isn't much. Life as a teen can sometimes be challenging with the feelings that the world is against you and you don't have enough strength to keep going. However, most of us find our way into the brightness, beauty, and reality of the world, and we try to help those who haven't. Hopefully this poem will give a new perspective to not only teens but also to people who are having a hard time in life and think that they don't have the strength to keep going.

Life May Be Hard

Don't stop and scream at the pebble that made you fall.
If you can't get up, at least crawl.
You gotta move forward
And never be cornered
By the thoughts that created an invisible border.

Life is hard.
Life may leave some scars,
But never be afraid
Of what lies ahead.
You can get through.
You just need some faith
And the belief that everything works out for the best.

When life gets you down, you gotta bounce back up.
No matter how hard, you have to get up.
Life may be hard,
But it can also be fun.
Explore different paths
And hold up your flag.
The flag is the symbol that you've made it far.
