I have walked through hell.
I have pushed through its fires.
I have walked over needles and daggers with flaming arrows being fired.

I have walked through blizzards.
I have walked through freezing rain.
I have walked across thin ice and seen the cracks as it gives way.

I have walked over mountains.
I have felt their sharp edges.
I have stumbled over loose rocks and clung to the ledges.

I have walked the smooth paved roads,
And slipped on the smaller gravel paths too.
And felt the thorns tug at me as I pressed through the world to make a new.

But I have danced through meadows.
I have felt the soft grass underfoot.
The tingling of the summer sun and frolicked through brooks.

I have walked in light flurries.
Watched my footprints imprint in the gentle snow.
And I knew I’d left my mark behind, that my presence might affect someone not even known.

And I have marched into the deep oceans
I have walked through the swirling seas.
Only to emerge once again, complete and having faced a challenge like it were a friend and with ease.

So when someone says I can’t handle things.
Or that I’m not strong enough, that I can’t deal, to take a break and just stop,
Knowing what I’ve been through, both the good and the rough.
I simply say “You don’t know through what I’ve walked”
I went through a rough time recently. A lot of my friends were worried I would break down because of it. But I held it together and this was something I wrote to help explain my thought process while I was pushing through it. As a reminder to myself and to tell them that Ive been though great times and bad, but Im strong enough to make it through.
Let me know if you liked it :)

Very well written. I really liked the detail. I felt like I could see everything in my head. Also very inspiring. Only thing I would suggest would be for you to take out like a friend in the last line of the second to last stanza. I just think just writing with ease would make it flow more. Really well done overall.

Amazing as always! I love this poem, really much, because I can't see myself in there too... Congratulations on the poem and on your overcome! :D


(Funny fact: when I started reading this, my Ipod started playing "If You're Going Through Hell"...)
