My Unbroken Hero

This grip wasn't mine...
I thought I had let go-

Then our timeline intertwined...
You tried to abolish my sorrow-

My guilt does not outweigh my weaknesses
I don't know what it's like to remain strong
I even ask the undertow for forgiveness
And the stars I don't wish upon

This hope for life-
Was the origin of your smile...

It brings a certain light-
Allowing lost truths to prevail...
-
Hail the defenseless
Every tear has a reason
Dreams aren't meaningless
Even souls have seasons

Fear fuels freedom / Combine intention and purpose
All colors brighten / New foundations to harness

For humanity's existence
Kindness has to be selfless
For destiny's persistence
Love needs to be boundless
-
This empowerment aligned...
I held on-

This connection defied...
Fears came undone-

My gratitude out-shines my faith
As I walk beyond my past limitations
I get to live for another day
Because of your mortal intervention

You turned the tides-
Lifting me up into tomorrow...

And when I saw your eyes-
I knew you were my unbroken hero...
Hands held high
Hopes held tight

Hi, i just wanted to say i thought your poem was beautiful, and i'm wondering if you would be interested in submitting it to a magazine i'm involved with. Our theme this month is "Heroes", and this could fit in well as we are looking for any and all interpretations of that theme. So if you'd be willing to submit this or any other work you've done, then it'd be great if you could check out my journal for more info, and for the email address for literature submissions :) [link]

Thank you!

As a poem, this is awful. And fix the I can feel the suffering that your hiding / so no one will know that your badly hurt, where it's you're, and never your. Bad grammar in literature makes me sad.

Oh no, it's the either/or fallacy, the black and white, the for or against us, the divide and conquer.

I believe in Jesus. He did not say anything in particular against homosexuals. The only sexual act he really talked against was unfaithfulness. I want to know where Jesus said homosexuality was awful.

I absolutely love this. Explains one of my friendships so perfectly. One of my friends I really look up to both as an actor and a person and when I finally met him for the first time, I realized that there was a lot of stuff going on in his life that he needed help with and we started helping each other out and have gotten to become quite close friends over the year we've known each other. No matter how strong someone is, every can use an extra shoulder to lean on.

That sounds like such a wonderful experience, even though it may seem difficult, there is still a sense of restitution.
Maybe you could show him this, and see if he might find it to his liking too. Hopefully.
Thank you so much for sharing your story.

Well, age is just a number beside a name. Knowledge is what counts, but that;s just my weird opinion.
