Strength:

(Only in English language)

Poem poemauthor prosaistforfatter norwegian blogger strength childhood mental health

My strength didn’t come

from lifting weights.

My strength came from

lifting my self up every time

I was knocked down…

Everytime I was knocked down

I take my fragile wings and flutter with

them so that I am lifted up and every

time I get a little stronger and colorful.

I, a fragile butterfly with a color spell

like a flower of the Orchid familiy

can fight to be a strong

tiger within myself …

…still I rise…

-Orkidedatter-

    1. Good morning, at least in Norway it is morning.
      You want an explanation and it’s just the truth that applies to me as well. Truths and falsehoods and lies are the worst I know, perhaps because I have experienced a lot of it.
      An explanation here will take too much time and there will be a long answer. But if I say «dandelion child», if it makes any sense to you, then there is an explanation in one word.
      I think it had been more than nice to have met you with a good cup of coffee and I’m sure we could have a good conversation too.
      Thank you so much for reading my poems and taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it.🦋
      I’m gonna miss your items, I think it is sad, but I respect your decision.
      It was my pleasure to read your post🦋
      I hope you enjoy your day.

      1. I understand the Orchid and dandelion as defined for children. However, I truly see you as an Orchid, one who needs the structure and sameness each day. I was raised like a dandelion child, but always felt like an Orchid. I still dont get the not wanting to meet. Surely you are allowed to have friends.. and visit with them.

      2. Thank you for your understanding🦋 and I use the butterfly to explain my self too. A butterfly means something special to me🦋
        I hope you find something beautiful in your day today and make it great🦋

  3. Very beautiful and powerful words, Orkidèdatter! 👏 Your poem reminds me of my butterfly poem Afloat. You just need to correct a few misspellings: the title. Strength (always write it like this). On line 3 this word is again misspelled. Another misspelling is on line 12. It is orchid familiy, not Orcide. Finally, there is a little grammar mistake on line 12. «can fight for to be a strong» should be: can fight to be a strong (remove the word «for»).

    1. Thank you so much, I am very glad that you like it🦋
      Thank you for your correct on my misspellings. It’s a bit embarrassing, I should know that familiy was written like that …but, I really appreciate your help and support❤️
      Have I read your poem Afloat, I check it out🦋
      I hope you have a great day🦋
