Courage Poem by Teens

Picking Yourself Up Again

Even when you go through so much, you can always pick yourself up. This is my story in the form of poetry, a way for me to let go. With this poem, my hope is that others can relate to it and find a place of peace to forgive your past but not forget since it is what makes you stronger.

The Girl

A letter to that girl
That girl who sat by herself
That girl who doubted herself
That girl who was bullied
She was let down

A letter to that girl
That girl who was used
That girl who was manipulated
That girl who was gaslighted
She was left in pieces

A letter to that girl:
You are beautiful
You are wonderful
You are you
Don't let anyone take that away from you

And I know this world can knock you so far down
Trust me, I do
But it's all about picking yourself back up
Fighting back
And showing just who you are

Look at you, so strong
You showed everyone who you are
And even in the darkest moments
You pulled through
And you became you

So this is a letter to that girl
That girl who was knocked down
But she learned to get up
Everything is easier said than done
But I know how it all feels
For this is a letter to that girl
And that girl is me

It takes a lot of courage and insight to look deep in one's self and realize that they are just as worthy as anyone else. And it's even more special to be determined to change one's attitude and start the tough job of recovery. I enjoyed your message.
