Be strong

Written by: Felicia Spencer

AN: Here's a poem dedicated to everyone going through hardships and tough times. Personally I loved the way this poem came out, and I hope that it's as uplifting to you as it was to me. Consider this my little personal thereapy. Anyways read and enjoy the poem. Heh could some of ya's do me a favor....if you have't read some of my older work....check it out. Especially the one's with only one or two reviews on them. (Shameless self promotion) Also I forgot to spellcheck...so ignore my ignorance. Anyway enjoy this poem as well. TTFN.

I've had my shares

Of up's and down's

My trials and tribulations

Were always around

My head was hanging low

I had tears in my eyes

And all I could do

Was ask the question why

Why do I go through such pain

Tell me what did I do wrong

You looked me straight in the eye

And told me to be strong

And that I had to be strong...

(Chorus)

I have cried the tears

Surpassed all my fears

And I lived through the pain

I promise never again

And yes I will survive

I have the strenght to carry on

So all you ladies if ya hear me

Ya got to be strong

The nights were long

And I felt I wouldn't last

I tried to forget

About the heartache in my past

I tried to smie

But I was dying inside

My heart may be weak

But what's strong is my pride

And if you keep your head up

And you perservere

You too will realize

That there's nothing to fear

Are you listening here...

(Chorous)

I have cried the tears

Surpassed all my fears

And I lived through the pain

I promise never again

And yes I will survive

I have the strenght to carry on

So all you fellas if ya hear me

Ya got to be strong

(Bridge)

Don't let your problems weigh you down

If you need a friend, I'll be around

We can help each other make it through

If you're there for me, I'll be there for you

Take your joy in yesterday

For tomorrow is another day

Together we belong

Together we are strong

(Chorus)

I have cried the tears

Surpassed all my fears

And I lived through the pain

I promise never again

And yes I will survive

I have the strenght to carry on

So if ya really hear me

Ya got to be strong

Ya got be strong....

Ya got to hold on

We should all belong

Ya just got to be strong.
