"Soldiers": A Poem for Hard Days & When You Need Some Inspiration

Sometimes your days can start off less than positive. And I have been feeling this poem in my soul for the past few weeks and was able to write it down yesterday. This is for you on those less-than-perfect days where you feel like you may have to dig deep to get through. I hope you find some strength in these words.


Hard days can be just that:
And oh so weary.

You can sit, heavy headed
And shed the tears you know are gathering
Surrendering to the despair
Once and for all.

You can close your eyes
And dig deep for the
Reserves of strength
You’ve been saving
For just this moment.

You can do each
Or neither
And realize
That you are both human and warrior.

And while you may be bruised
You are not broken
And even on hard days
You are still a soldier.

This is so beautiful, Jessica L. Williams . You are so right. There are many days you just don't want to do it - whatever that "it" is. And yet, you have to dig deep for your inner warrior and get it done. Thank you for these very inspiring words. You are truly gifted! xoxo

Oh Jessica Williams ! This is beautiful and the timing is perfect. As I sit here in the ER with my husband crying and digging into my inner warrior that everything will be ok with him and if not, I will be strong and handle all that is given to me. Thank you for sharing this. xoxoxo
