Pushing Through – A Poem

She was not forced into life decisions

She was given choices

Choices that confused her

So she ended up with what was chosen for her

Now she’s left alone with her thoughts

The innocence of her soul now rots

Making her scream as she connects the dots

But admit defeat she won’t do 

Ignoring the bile that they spew

In stubborn form she pushes right through

Hey, Our brains are extremely sensitive to rhyme and rhythm in poetry. They can provide comfort and lift one’s spirits during times of stress, trauma, or grief. Its potent combination of words, metaphor, and metre allows us to express ourselves more effectively and make sense of the world and our place in it. With this in mind, I present a collection of coming-of-age poems that may inspire you to overcome life’s challenges and uncertainties. If you like my poems, do leave a review on Amazon.

    The character in the poem seems imprisoned in a world of causality.

  2. This speaks to a modern day phenomenon of being overwhelmed with choice. It’s paralyzing, it can cause anxiety. We’re made to feel like choice is the best thing for us, but that’s not always true.

      I agree. It’s what I felt like growing up
