I never knew

This is one of my first ever attempts at poetry. It has been hard for me to find creativity - I think it has been because of my inability to connect with my own emotions. As I am healing and progressing, I feel more creative. I want to be more creative.

I never knew how strong I was, until I could stand no longer.
I never knew compassion, until I knew suffering.
I never knew how cold it was, until I felt the warmth.
I never knew how deep it hurt, until it began to heal.
I never knew how alone I was, until I was with you.
I never knew.

Today, I know what love feels like.
Today, I know what hope feels like.
Today, I know how to be courageous.
Today, I know.

One day I will know joy
One day, I will know peace.
One day, I will forgive.
One day, I will be the woman I long to be.

One day, I will!

  1. I like it. I've attempted poetry and never done so well. I have to stick to humorous things because I'm not good at expressing other emotions.
