I Can Go On

I can go on,

In spite of shattered dreams,

And broken promises,

I can go on.

I can go on,

When all seems lost,

And sorrow seems to,

Fragment my heart,

I can go on.

I can go on,

When pain seems to be

My best friend,

And joy threatens to subside,

I can go on.

I can forget,

The hurt of yesterday,

And embrace tomorrow,

Knowing that,

If I have love in my heart,

No matter what,

May come my way,

I can and will go on.

I Am Not Afraid

I walk with my head held high,

And I am not afraid to pursue my dreams,

Overcome my challenges,

Remove my obstacles,

I am not afraid of change.

For the past I have no regrets,

What’s done is done,

It was how it was meant to be.

To the future I look without fear,

For I know God will see me through.

He directs my path,

He shows me the way to go.

I can count on Him to lead and guide me,

In the pursuit of my dreams and final destiny.

I planted a seed of faith,
I molded it up with hope,
I showered it with love,
Then waited for it to grow,
It grew for a while,
But then it got scorched up by the sun,
I watered it with my tears,
Refusing to let it die,
I held on to my faith’,
I continued to hope,
It struggled for awhile,
Then slowly began to grow,
And then one morning,
I looked outside my bedroom window,
To find that it had bloomed,
And I felt a burst of joy,
As my eyes behold,
The most beautiful of flowers,
That I had ever seen.


I saw the line, I saw the hook,
But somehow I didn’t think,
I’d ever fall for it,
To me it seemed like just a game,
I could always swim away,
But somehow I got too close,
And got caught upon the hook,
I struggled to get away from it,
But the more I tried,
The deeper the hook did seem,
To dig into my flesh,
The line was long and the more I swam,
Into deeper waters I did get,
But still there was no escape,
From the hook that had slipped into my flesh,
It’s slowly getting darker now,
The sun has lost its shine,
I hope the hand that holds the line,
Will be kind enough to me,
To draw in the line, remove the hook,
And somehow set me free.

  1. Scary. I wonder what experience inspired this?

    • marvaseaton says:

      Actually this poem is a reflection of situations people sometimes get themselves in unintentionally. They feel they can handle it but then find that they can’t control what happens.

  2. From a fish’s point of view – intelligent and with a touch of dark humor.
