Courage Poem

How To Overcome Life Waves And Survive

Each day, I encounter individuals--patients, family, and friends--struggling with the burdens of anxiety and ensnared by the grip of depression. We've all weathered storms of trauma in our lives, and some find themselves imprisoned by these emotions for an extended duration. This poem explores the theme of embracing life's challenges, learning from them, and persevering. It calls for courage to ride the turbulent waves of life and emerge as survivors.

Trapped in my thoughts,
In my days and what my life brought.
Trapped in my memories, lost in my reveries.

The scenes of chasing butterflies, laughter and peace .
The thoughts of life waves, hits that dropped me down to my knees.
The happy ways, charms and lucky days.
The grief, the losses and the foul plays.
Life and its waves,
To be strong- to be brave .

Face it- it's something we have to do
Chase it - it is not just me and you
This is life, we just need to accept and survive.
Sharp as a knife but sweet to enjoy as long we are alive.
Trapped I need to set myself free
Trapped I need to get out and see.

I need to open my eyes
Enjoy again the blue skies
Laugh again from my heart
Push myself to a new start
I am free from my thoughts today
Free to love, laugh, live and play.
I am free Today..
