29 My Will

I will my will to live
In spite of the darkness that surrounds me
I will my will to live
Despite of the desolation that threatens to consume me
I will my will to live
To triumph over the clouds that encompasses me,
Haunt me,
Taunt me,
Degrade me,
Suffocate me,
Irk me,
Debase me,
Berate me,
All mocking me,
Trying to convince me to give up.
I will not!
I dare not!
I will my will to rise up!
I will not surrender
I will my will to live because...
I am stronger than the needle that occasionally punctures my hope,
Drains my happy dragging me into melancholy
I will my will to live...
Through another day,
Another hour,
Another minute,
Another second,
Another breath,
Another moment,
Because my will has convinced me,
I am more than this moment of pain.
I am more than this moment of shame.
I am more than the humiliation of things past.
I am precious in my impotence of weaknesses.
I am prefect in my imperfectness.
And thought I may wallow from time to time
In the juices of my unsureness and fear
I know that the sun will shine again
And my will, will triumph over all things.

  1. Ehem! That took me a while to get it all in perspective …
    A shaking one …
    Wonderfully wrought to make everyone stop and think for a while …

    1. There are times when contemplation and reflection is necessary.

  2. The mental strength and determination is visible all through the well written poem.I had to read twice to get the whole ensemble.

    1. hmmmmmm.....interesting analysis, glad you were able to comprehend.

  3. That is a wonderful poem, such power and strength!

  4. Hi

    Amazing poem. A lot of thought has gone into writing this lovely poem.

    I agree with you WILL POWER is of paramount importance for us to survive in the face of insurmountable obstacles. It is not the falling down but lying down is a crime. All of us know the old saying – WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY.

    At first I thought this post was a riddle. But as I kept on reading till the end, I realized that this post is all about WILL and how it will help to overcome problems and succeed in life.

    This is a highly educative and instructive poem and will be of immense help to all of us.

    I am thrilled to see that you are a multifaceted personality with diverse talents including prose, poetry, cooking, management and photography. I am green with envy

    Before I forget, you have taken so much trouble to visit so many of my posts and write comments. But I am very unhappy to say that I could not read all your comments because I have no way of finding out where they have gone. What a pity! Once again I need your help to locate them. May be I am clumsy but then I have to admit my frailties.

    Let me take leave of you now albeit reluctantly,

    Till we meet again, my best wishes to you:)

    1. Namaste Joseph and thank you for your compliment, great analysis and point of view. It is wonderful to read someone else's understanding on the same subject.

  11. Hi Fab,

    All the best from Branson.


  12. Hello Fabulous One,

  17. WOW!! What and inspiring piece! I really like it….I’m about to read it again

  18. Does worry you some things? this your entry is a bit negative way….
    You know that the sun will shine again. have a positive thinking.
    Have a wonderful week

  19. Jeannette is lucky to have you in her corner. Hopefully you can can will your will into her and encourage her to be strong.

  20. Fab One, there’s too much negativity coming at us from all directions; it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
    That’s the bad news. The good news is that a choice can make the difference between whether the negativity brings you down or not. Sometimes it’s hard to choose to embrace goodness and light, but so worth the effort.
    I wish you and your friend the strength to choose positivity.
    Sometimes it’s all we’ve got.
    I wish you peace.

  21. This that you wrote makes all sense.

    we are all one.
    Love and blessings your way.
