 Dare To Live 

By T. Pina 

 

 

 

 

When life’s troubles got you down,

 And the waters of your daily strife

Makes you feel like you’re going to drown,

 

Try and reach down inside of your soul

And pull out whatever you got left,

And just dare to live.

 

Life is so uncertain and tomorrow is not promised at all.

Some days you might find yourself on top of the highest mountain of life or in the depths of a barren valley with nothing left inside you at all.

 

Believe me, I’ve been both places in my lifetime and it doesn’t take much in life to cause a person to fall.

Life is completely fragile and can be broken by its seams in no time at all 

 

Yet, if it’s one thing I’ve

 Learned in all of life’s mess,

 Is that blessed is a person,

Who can raise themselves,

from all of their destructive strife.

 

Also Blessed are those who dare to live

 And overcome their hellish struggles in life!

 

Dare to live,

Despite the destroying 

Fires of despair burning in your life.

 

Dare to live,

And you will overcome it all.

 

Believe me, if you do you’ll never be the same,

But then after, pass it on as help to others or it all would have been in vain!

 

 So what ever it takes,

What ever the cost,

Just, dare to live!

PENS FOR PEACE /TJ CALIFORNIA
Actually this is the first poem I ever wrote years ago when I was in one of my to be or not to be moods! To my amazement I just found it in my archives this morning. Now I am no poet , but this is what the voice of truth told me inside my head after a very tough day!
May it help to light the roads of those in despair!

I had to smile as I read all of the comments about it being a 'cliched piece'...funny...there is nothing new under the sun, and yet we still go on about cliche....
From you heart, that is what it was, and if I appreciated nothing else of it (which is not the case, but 'IF' it were), that alone recommends your write.

I've been daring to but life seems to be daring right back. Good message anyway though. Kudos.

Poetry is whatever is in your soul that needs to be let out and expressed. It is one's beliefs, strengths, weakness, best of times and when we are at our worst. I read your bio and this is truly your belief in life itself. It is who your are. I enjoyed reading it. Keep sharing your aura with others. You can't go wrong doing that.

This made me smile :) hehehe
I needed a pick me up and this was perfect!
I will agree with Jaclyn, in that it is a cliched piece- but who cares? Poetry will never be good no matter how different or experimental it is, unless there's heart...and you showed heart! :D

Enjoyed the read and defintely agree with the sentiments. Not my kind of poetry Im an old fashioned formalist but you get your message acroos in well written poetic prose.Most folks just exist and sadly do not realise it

I love the strong and vibrant tone to this awesome poetry!
Fine piece of work with so much wisdom that one can savor

Blessed are those who dare to live

You shared some wonderful words of sage
that will surely go down smoothly as one takes that step
into that live of courage, the will to overcome by daring to live!
Excellent write my friend, to keep us all in tact!!!

Okay, I'm gonna get real here:

While I felt very inspired by the words here, I also felt that it was a very cliched piece. Of course, I am a master of cliched poetry, so please don't take this to heart. Like I said before, it's not that I wasn't uplifted because I truly was, but I think that we've heard these words said in different forms a thousand times over. I do like the message though and am still smiling over it. :)
