To the cheers I hold


To the lonely souls 

to the fallen self 

to the holding backs 

to the confined rooms 

to the closed windows 

to the closed doors of opportunities 

to the orthodox world 

to the uncertainties of life 

to the stares 

And to the questioning glares 

to the looking down 

to the smirks of satire 

to the irony of fate 

to the gilded dreams 

a cheer of my dare 

a cheer of my favourite song 

a cheer of my courage 

a cheer I won’t go down 

cause the greater the thrust 

the greater the buoyancy I hold 

maybe Archimedes principle working through 

maybe the elasticity of stubbornness 

to revive and get what One deserve 

seems greater than your pushing down 


no, I am not a fighter 

no, I am not a wrestler 

but a survivor 

a warrior’s blood raging 

No, I am not a winner 

I am a struggler 

wishing to thrive and strive 

to only merely survive 


lucky to survive 

but daring to fly high 


  • Paul Bell

    No survival, no life.
    That doesn't mean life can't get better, it can. What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger?

      Loved these lines
      “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger?”
      Yes, life shall surely get better
      And more better
      Thanks dear Paul for the encouragement.

          Thank you so much dear Vamsi for encouraging me
          Maybe the positivity didn’t die

            • Neville

              this is not only epic & awesome .. it should also be adopted as the anthem for the underdog, the undervalued, the misunderstood, the unloved, the underprivileged and all those who face adversity like warriors despite everything and hold their heads up with pride ... Fly high spiller & always ................ x

              • spilleronsheet

                Thank you so much dear Neville
                The comments from your pen made it so special
                Moving from some toxicity to positivity
                Thanks to all beautiful poets around
                They who make me stronger by their words
                Thanks to your encouragement
                The days seems more sunny

                Flames, flames, flames! - It speaks so much to so many of us. Defiance is not even the word... - We shall overcome, gifted one. We shall overcome!
