I no longer need
To think what to write
You, just you
Is all I need
The core of my poems
The song that endlessly plays
Your voice
Sweeter than nectar
Your eyes
Brighter than the stars
Your laugh
Like the sun
Breaking through a rainy day
Your smile
Fills me
With inner happiness
Your hand
So soft
Yet reassuring
Your very being
Is the greatest mystery
You being yourself
Makes me want to be with you
To the end of my days
Your very presence
Makes my heart skip a beat
With you by my side
I feel
Strong
Capable
Confident
Most importantly,
Happy
No poem
No song
Will ever be able
To show how much you mean to me
For you alone are all I need
I no longer need
To think what to write
You, just you
Is all I need
The core of my poems
The song that endlessly plays
Your voice
Sweeter than nectar
Your eyes
Brighter than the stars
Your laugh
Like the sun
Breaking through a rainy day
Your smile
Fills me
With inner happiness
Your hand
So soft
Yet reassuring
Your very being
Is the greatest mystery
You being yourself
Makes me want to be with you
To the end of my days
Your very presence
Makes my heart skip a beat
With you by my side
I feel
Strong
Capable
Confident
Most importantly,
Happy
No poem
No song
Will ever be able
To show how much you mean to me
For you alone are all I need
This is my first free verse poem, I really hope you like it

They try to knock me down
Shatter me into a million pieces
As many times as there are stars
In the vast universe
I am strong.

You are wrong, they say
I am Copernicus.
The sun is the center of the universe,
No matter how powerful I may be
I am Wegener.
The earth has always been
drifting apart
Much like your narrow minded logic
I am Semmelweis.
Wash your hands
But the blood on your hands
Will remain until the end of time
I am strong.

They underestimate me,
You are nothing but a speck of dust
No, no
I am capable.
I am an achiever.
I am strong.

I am strong
I am confident
I am capable

but it would be nice
if I didn't
Always
have to be...
I look up
to the cliff above
sigh

I turned around
and shook my head

I can't
there's no way
even if I climb it
I couldn't get down
the water isn't deep enough
the sides are too steep

So in silence we sat
watching the waves roll in
letting the silence
consume the space between us

Until he said
yeah you really couldn't
I mean maybe I could
but not you

I was taken aback
how dare he say I can't
I could do anything
if I want to

I looked back up
at the perilous slopes
back down
at the waves crashing into sea boulders

And I stood up
grabbed by bags
and started my journey
to the top

Because no fear
would stand in the way
and absolutely no one
could tell me I was incapable

Our inability in life doesn't limit God's capability in our lives.

What you may think is a problem can actually be your victory!

Someone is suffering, what're you going to do?
If I have the capability to relieve them of their suffering then that is what I'm going to do
Regardless of who they are or what they're worth
It just doesn't get anymore complicated than that
When we started this, it seemed so simple
We were going to help people.
But what if those ideals can die?
What if those hopes can fade into the failure of the system?
You have to ask yourself "How do I protect the ideals I came here for?"

Everything I have - Is because of me
Everything I've done - Is because of me
I am independence
I am standing alone
I am observing the world around me, learning from it, giving to it and being apart of it
I am improving my self worth every day and searching further into myself for what I am capable of being
I am amazing
I control my life and those who get to be in it
Nobody tells me what to do
I am strong because my spirit, body and mind are connected
I don't need shiny things
I need me.
