Pick Yourself Up – A Poem to Give You Strength To Carry On

Pick yourself up imageArticle by Ntathu Allen

Blessings and welcome dear friends and,  a hearty hug to new readers. We are glad you are here, taking time to tune in and rest your soul. Today’s post, Pick Yourself Up, is a poem written for you if you are going through a hard time and need a calm caring voice to cheer you up and remind you  how marvellous you are and you’re not alone.

At FabafterFifty we want every woman over to experience inner happiness and calm so you feel fabulous and gorgeous every minute of your day. However, we know some day’s life is tough and no matter what you do, you struggle to shine and sparkle.

If this sounds like you or you know someone who is going through a hard time, this poem is just for you to help you pick yourself up and feel bright and happy again.

Pick Yourself Up

I have the strength, the faith and courage to see you through your pain

To hold you through the tempest and the cold, dark moments of dread

I have the patience, the fortitude and love to be with you.

To travel alongside your sorrow, your grief, hurt and confusion.

To nurture and protect you from unnecessary harm.

All this and more, I have to give and see you through, from

Troubled seas to peaceful shores.

C. Ntathu

Closing Words
