Bright Tomorrow

The pain that comes,
will somehow pass,
a cure for some,
happens so ​fast.
Slowly inhale,
take one last breath,
another fail,
led to hopes death.

Dark bloody stains,
dirty both hands,
life full of strain,
and tough demands.
So hard to show,
what is not there,
a forced fake smile
glows pure despair.

Rebuild your heart,
stitch with silk thread,
create a start,
release the dread.
Find happiness,
in the small things
watch as sadness
becomes extinct.

Take each day slow,
use baby steps,
each new reached goal,
leads to the next.
The fakest smile,
will become real,
as good times pile,
life gains appeal.

  1. Omg, Grace, I really needed to read this now. “Rebuild your heart,
    stitch with silk thread,” Beautiful piece, love itπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’–πŸ’–

  2. “Rebuild your heart,
    stitch with silk thread…”

    I like to think poetry like yours is the silk thread needed to stitch our hearts back together. Your words make a difference, Grace. Just wanted to let you know. πŸ™‚

  3. This was really empowering, Grace!
    “stitch with silk thread..” Just love how your words sound so magical and inspiring. Loved it ❀❀

  4. “So hard to show,
    what is not there,
    a forced fake smile
    glows pure despair.”

    This poem was really heartfelt! Mesmerising and eloquent!! Loved it as always!❀❀

  5. Gesh Grace, there are so many brilliant and relatable lines in this piece. I was going to comment on certain lines that stood out to me, but (I’m being honest here) in every stanza you have managed to weave truth… it’s hard to pick one. The lift and solution you offer the reader at the end is also based in reality… baby steps. Outstanding craftsmanship!

  6. Problems evolving into solutions
    Hardships into pleasantness
    So beautifully in your pieces I really love the metamorphosis❀️❀️

  7. Truly a motivational poem! Extremely beautiful! May I offer a suggestion? Just as how the slowest that one can ride a bicycle or drive a car is a testimony of skill and technique; having perfectly mastered the beautiful expression of pain, sorrow and upliftment, I believe you will absolutely excel writing on more joyful and light themes and topics. Try to consider my suggestionπŸ˜ƒ. Awaiting a new form of writing and a new form of self expression from you (at least onceπŸ™‚)!

    1. Thank you so much for your suggestion , Garima. If you look into my writing ,you will notice that 95% of them start out in a not so happy state with some type of resolution by the end. Most of the comments that I receive are based off of the inspirational sense that this brings to others. I also have several pieces that are all positive and pride myself on living and following a positive path. Again, I appreciate your view but would urge you to take a second look at my pieces. Much love to you.πŸ’•

  8. oh I love the honesty of his poem of pain and sorrow and your beautiful expression and hope. ?All of your poems are inspirational and uplifting! I wrote a dark piece yesterday with no redeeming qualities 🀣 .. I might just post it anyway.. lol.. I was like “what, I’ll ruin my rep and where the hell did that come from”.. hahah πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ™πŸŒ·πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ˜˜

    1. Thanks so much, Cindy.Glad you liked it.πŸ’• Sometimes The dark needs to come out too, my friend.It’s all about balancing and allowing your present emotions to run free, after all, writing is about expressing. Would love to read your dark pieces just as much as the bright ones. I’m sure it would be great.πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•

      1. You’re soooo welcome. It’s so true but I usually put a bow on it at the end like you do.. but this just leaves you there.. hmmmm we’ll see what I o.. I think I may just post 2 on the same day.. thanks dear… Happy day πŸ’–
