1. Title: “Still I Rise”

You might write me down with twisted lies,
In dirt and dust, where darkness lies.
But like dust, I’ll rise, unbowed, unbent,
My spirit unbroken, my heart unbent.

Does my boldness make you frown?
Like oil wells, I won’t back down.
With the certainty of tides and skies,
In grace and strength, I’ll still arise.

Did you hope to see me fall?
Bowed, broken, with no hope at all?
With laughter and gold mines in my eyes,
In my own backyard, my power lies.

You may shoot me with words of hate,
Try to seal my uncertain fate.
But like air, I’ll rise, free and wise,
Unbroken spirit, reaching the skies.

Still I Rise - Compassion Poems

2. Title: “What Changes”

My father’s dreams walk hand in hand,
Years beyond his farewell, they stand.
We strive for a life devoid of strife,
Dreaming to end violence in our life.

In streets where shops their wares display,
A handkerchief, maroon and white, holds sway,
Like my father’s, kissed by the sun’s warm light,
In his pocket, beneath his smile so bright.

He’d share it with anyone he’d meet,
How do we move forward in a world so sweet?
His hopes still whisper in the breeze,
Guiding us through life’s complexities.

Though the nut shops may shutter and close,
My father’s kindness forever flows.
In memory’s embrace, his legacy stays,
Teaching us to navigate life’s winding maze.

3. Title: “Sometimes”

At times, we crave
new colors and gentle light’s embrace,
To reveal what’s painted
across the starry night’s grace.

Magical moments of not-knowing,
They bridge the gap, a gentle thread,
A midnight’s crescent moon,
Half-seen, half-understood.

In and out of time we flow,
Hope for the morrow, with presence aglow,
A smile, a tender, caring touch,
A star’s silent voice before day’s hush.

God, an invitation, not a command,
No demand, just a twinkling hand,
A holy bard, serendipity’s guide,
On this journey, by our side.

Sometimes - Compassion Poems

4. Title: “Sacred In-Between”

Two buckets, a balance sought to be,
In that space, I came to be.
Where one’s journey ends, mine begins,
Between the extremes, life’s story spins.

Extremes, they beckon with ease,
The middle ground, where mystery flees.
Midsummer’s song, the path we tread,
Shades of gray, choices ahead.

In the note between notes, secrets hide,
In the pause between pauses, worlds collide.
In the breath between breaths, dreams ignite,
In the silent space, hope takes flight.

In the stillness between night and dawn,
In sacred in-between spaces, life’s spawn.
All that can be imagined, it seems,
Lies within those spaces, in between the dreams.

5. Title: “Enduring Hope”

No need for despair, my dear heart,
As nightly stars keep their flame,
While evening spreads its silent art,
And the morning greets with no shame.

No need for despair, let tears flow,
Like a river, they may descend,
But the dearest moments we know,
Will in our hearts eternally blend.

For the stars and the moon up high,
Shine down on us with their light,
As they grace the vast, open sky,
Guiding us through the darkest of night.

The best of times, forever entwined,
Around our hearts, they reside,
In the memories, they’re defined,
With love, they’ll never subside.

6. Title: “What Beckons You?”

Believe in what calls to your heart,
That which gives life a vibrant start,
Pursuit with passion, purpose’s guide,
On this unique journey, we’ll reside.

Desire’s not necessarily God’s trace,
At least not in the customary space,
But your path, your call to the unknown,
The love you yearn for, all on your own.

What you discover, the steps you tread,
Moments of joy, tears that you’ve shed,
The wonder, the beauty, the unknown’s allure,
All unveil paths, new and pure.

What you seek, seeks you as well,
A dance of stories that time will tell,
In the moon’s vague, gentle, guiding light,
Your journey unfolds, shining bright.

7. Title: “Song of Resilience”

I know why the caged bird sings, oh me,
With bruised wings and a heart that’s sore,
It beats the bars, longing to be free,
A song of sorrow, not of joy anymore.

Not a carol of delight or glee,
But a prayer that from its core takes flight,
A plea to the heavens, earnest plea,
Yearning for freedom, for the boundless height.

In its song, a soul’s longing rings,
A voice of hope in a cage of despair,
For the caged bird, its spirit clings,
To dreams of skies, wide and fair.

Its melody, a powerful thing,
A testament of strength and grace,
In the darkest hours, it takes wing,
Singing of a brighter, hopeful place.

Song of Resilience - Compassion Poems

8. Title: “Discovering Hope”

The life I lead and the one I dream,
Seldom do they align, it seems.
But within the unanticipated,
I uncover hope, unabated.

Hidden in corners, amidst the fray,
Cracks in the ceiling, where sunbeams play,
Even in the holes within the floor,
Hope is found, unknown to me before.

It whispers, “Look closely, be keen,
I’m in every space, yet unseen,
In every corner, crevice, and nook,
Hope is where you should always look.

For hope is the ember in the darkest night,
The spark that guides with its gentle light,
It thrives in the shadows, waits patiently,
A beacon of strength in uncertainty.

9. Title: “Echoes of Tomorrow”

Though the sign on the door is stark,
“Instructions for survival,” it marks.
But the sun rises over the sea’s glassy sheen,
Climbing to the sky, a vibrant scene.

In its warm embrace, showers unfurl,
Worlds connect, a dance, a swirl.
Not just to survive, we’re here to thrive,
To rise, to love, and fully arrive.

Into the longing of our heart’s plea,
A world of desires fulfilled, you see.
Hoped for, lived in, and then,
The mystery of tomorrow begins again.

We are echoes of what’s to come,
The future whispers, we are one.
With each sunrise, the message clear,
We’re not just here to survive, but to persevere.

A smile I received one fine day,
From a stranger along my way.
Uncertain of what to do or say,

But the happiness it can bring,
To hearts in need of a comforting wing,
