The Walk


As I walk through the fire once more

Flames, coming at me from every angle
I know I'm a survivor 
I can walk through anything 
I've done it many times
Sometimes even with naked feet 
I'm no longer afraid
I'm not giving up the battle 
Because if I do 
Then my soul will have lost all hope 
And that just isn't my style.

    Great writing teddy … sometimes we walk through so many difficult things in life and yet we keep walking despite it being difficult .. that’s someone who doesn’t want to give up ! I know I’ve been through so much in life ..

    We all need hope and to know there is more good on the other side of struggle .

    • Teddy.15

      Yes dear Rose, today I needed a bit more courage than usual. I found it. So glad you relate to this. πŸ’– Thank you dear friend.

        That's the spirit, onwards and upwards. Life is an obstacle course.
        Sometimes it's easy, other times you think you'll never make it, but you do, and strength becomes you. If you're breathing, your fighting.

        • Teddy.15

          Paul those are such beautiful words, you could get your own poem from them. πŸ’– So much appreciation.

                As soon as I read "naked feet" I remembered a camping trip I went on in my youth through the the boys and girls club of Canada. I walked barefooted on hot coals. Great words of strength and determination here TeddyπŸ’ŽπŸ˜˜

                • Teddy.15

                  That must be a lovely memory. Thank you dearest Joseph. πŸ’–

                  Keep walking without fear 🐻 as when we give in to fear we fall and often we can't get back up. Beautiful message piece. πŸ’•

                  • Teddy.15

                    Thank you dear Woundedheart, I so appreciate your words dear friend. πŸ’–

                  • Rozina

                    A wonderful message of staying positive, not giving up. Truly resonates. I am reminded of these quotations "A woman is like a teabag - you never know how strong she is until she's put in hot water" or "you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice". Thank you.

                    • Teddy.15

                      Thank you dear Rozina it's true for all, as when we need to find the strength and the positive vibes we manage to find them from deep within sometimes we even have to dig. πŸ’–

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Very strong words Teddy and may it always be that your strength will always be with you.
