empowered!!


love lost...
deceit gained...
assurances false...
defeat encountered...
and today she stands empowered!

ridicule thrown...
taunts hurled...
reactions cynical...
pain immense...
and today she stands empowered!

broken hearts...
tears shed...
dreams shattered...
self-respect kicked...
and today she stands empowered!

desires unfulfilled...
stories incomplete...
webs entangled...
issues unsorted...
and today she stands empowered!

with a strong heart and mind...
head held high once more...
resurrected from the ashes,
the phoenix soars again...
as life moves on,
she tries too...
cos 'yesterday',amidst all the suffering,
has taught her to face 'today'
as she stands empowered!!

PROMPT: taken from 'writers island' ,the word being empowered

"cos 'yesterday',amidst all the suffering,
has taught her to face 'today'"

Such true words! Nicely done poem!

Vandita said...

awesome lines of inspiration!!

rebecca said...

it is through the pains and trials that we go through life and the lessons learned along the way that, yes, infuses us with the courage and strength we need and gain and ultimately gives us those feelings of empowerment.

well, well done.

I think it was Ernest Hemingway who said, "That which does not kill us makes us stronger."

Unfortunately, depression and booze killed him.

UL said...

Until the last stanza, the words sound like bullets firing and firing from a gun. Then the last stanza takes charge, a little slower and softer, affirming spiritual strength.

Lovely write!

Smiles and Light
