I wrote this poem a while ago, I think to cheer myself up. Was going through a rough time and was trying to write some self-made chizuk... So here it is... hope you find something chizuk-y in it too.
Kid! (Inspired by “Oh, The Places You’ll Go”, by Dr. Seuss)
Kid, you cry,
Did someone die?
Did someone say goodbye?
Why oh why?
Why do you cry?
Wipe your tears,
I’ll remove your fears,
Sure, life isn’t crystal clear,
But I’m always here,
And He’s everywhere,
He’ll lend you his ear,
You’re His precious child, so dear.
Come near me,
Listen close: you can be,
Everything you want to be,
And everything you see,
Is there for the taking, it’s all free,
Just call out with a plea,
Then go on a spree!
But be careful, watch out,
Some bad things may be about,
You’ll scream, you’ll shout,
Trapped in despair and doubt,
But a chance for hope will sprout,
To pull you from the aching-breaking drought.
Step left, step right,
Push through the darkness and see the light,
You’ll emerge victorious from this night,
Kid, just fight!
You got the power, you got the sight,
To soar to the highest height,
To be free from your plight,
And even though they may scorn and spite,
Kid, you’ll be all right!
You have the power to achieve good!
You know what to do, exactly what you should,
And I knew you could!
Pull down your angry hood,
You make think you’re misunderstood,
But you can still do good!
Do what you want to do,
But do it for you,
No one else has to have a clue,
Cause you’ll always make it through!
Kid, you are scared but true,
So real, it scares me how much you grew,
Kid, you soared! You flew!
You always had the power in you!
Sometimes you may fall,
But hear my call,
“You will once again stand tall!”
“You’ll get through it all!”
You may suffer, you may have to crawl,
You may fight or end up in brawl,
Or walk down a dark, despondent hall,
But my name, my love, you will recall.
So today you are afraid,
But kid! You’ve got it made!
My love for you will never fade,
You will never be betrayed,
For you, I prayed,
And together we played,
Then fell laughing in the shade.
The time spent with you, I would never trade.
Kid, I love you!
Don’t you see it’s true?
I’m crazy about you!
And you know what to do,
Get away from the sadness, you’ll pull through,
And if I'm lying, so sue!
But you and I together, just us two,
Together we will pursue,
And fight and fight, the whole night through,
Kid, you’ll emerge victorious, it’s true!
And I’d do it over… just for you.
Kid. I love you.
