Poem about Life Struggles

Poem About A Full And Empty Life

These last few months have been particularly rough for me. My parents just divorced, my mom is moving an hour and a half away, and my dad's girlfriend is moving in. I've been trying for a long time to capture my feelings, and this poem does that for me. This poem really means a lot to me. To me, it perfectly captures that longing for how my life used to be and how it is so much different now: the contrast between a steady life and a weak life that greatly represents the natural beats of life.

Strong & Steady

Published: March 2016

In           
And out.
Strong and steady
Are the breaths.

Boom.     
Boom.
Strong and steady
Is the heartbeat.

Tick.         
Tick.
Strong and steady.
Is the clock.

Pitter.       
Patter.
Drip.         
Drop.
Strong and steady
Are the raindrops.

STRONG   
And STEADY     
And FULL
Is the life of one who achieves.

WEAK   
And USELESS 
And EMPTY
Is the life of one who is     
BROKEN.
