#WednesdayVerses : Be brave, be strong

be brave, be strong

In difficult times,
When things don’t seem alright.
In the days,
When life becomes a never-ending fight.
Be brave, be strong!


There are struggles,
That make you lose hope.
There are losses,
That you can’t seem to cope.
But, be brave, be strong!


There are moments,
When you’ve lost it all.
There are torments,
That you cannot stall.
Yet, be brave, be strong!


At times when life seems hard,
When nothing seems to be under control.
In situations where you feel,
Like you are drawn into a black-hole.
Be brave, be strong!


Though there seems to be no hope,
You got to hold to life dear.
You have to find your strength,
And fight each fear,
And be brave, be strong!


As a part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Vinay and I have started this weekly prompt which we’ve decided to call Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. Please add your post links to the linky only if you have written for the prompt. We are happy to have you rhyme with us. Prompt #26 is “Brave”.
