Free Verse Poem Take a Flower in Your Hand

“Free Verse Poem Take a Flower in Your Hand,” courage comes in being strong when everything else falls.

In, “Free Verse Poem Take a Flower in Your Hand,” we find the holidays and everyday life can bring challenges and struggles that can tear at the very core of one’s spirit. I have been in this place too. But the support of wonderful friends and family, and searching deep, deep within myself and grasping for hope changes my whole perspective.

Yesterday, I wrote about being blue through the holidays. It was my boyfriend who noticed my silence and reached out extending a flower of hope and tenderness. And his sweet smile along with a hug. It made my day! Do you sometimes get in that place?

Free Verse Poem Take a Flower in Your Hand

Oh so, your tears they show.
I know you have never felt so much pain.
But smile darling, be strong,

Hang on, hang on to the colors of life.
They’re there.

Take a flower in your small hand,
inhale the fragrance, let it linger on.

Let the rain fall; it will be Ok
What may seem so big, is yet so small.

Look long, see the beauty in the pain
Look long; colors are in the rain.

Just take the flowers you hold
Hang on, hang on to the magic of hope and life
and paint the sky with your smile.

Soul Survival Quotes Evolve

In, Soul Survival Quotes Evolve,” Growth comes when a heart wants more than just to exist.

I’m starting a series of quotes, I’ve named #SoulSurvival. These Soul Survival Quotes Evolve to soothe the soul. During the holidays I’ve been hit with the blues.  May of 2014, I lost my father to prostate cancer, then in 2015, a year later my husband, and eight other family members and friends throughout 2016 and 2017.

The holidays this year have been extremely tough in my heart. So as you all know my feelings and emotions spill here through my words. I reveal myself on paper and here on this site. And I’m hurting!


What is Soul?the principle of life, feeling, thought, and action in humans, regarded as a distinct entity separate from the body, and commonly held to be separable in existence from the body; the spiritual part of humans as distinct from the physical part.”

What is Survival – “the state or fact of continuing to live or exist, typically in spite of an accident, ordeal, or difficult circumstances.”

Soul Survival Quotes Evolve

I find myself like this green sapling fighting to survive somedays; it’s hard to smile, especially today. But I see when I pour my soul on paper, I am like the “green sapling,” emerging from all the pain, struggles of yesterday. Breaking walls down, appearing fresh and rejuvenated.

Just as new foliage break through the cracks of concrete, we also should “Evolve Beyond Walls.”
