Relativity of the Strong


Many a challenge they will face,

shoulders broad to bear the weight.

The strong have friends just a few,

as wasting time they never do.

Standing tall come rain or shine,

they never wilt the storms of time.

Senses acutely tuned to the world,

brute force against all wrongs.

A love of life always on their mind,

hearing cries of the weak and poor.

They are those who are the strong,

protecting the lonely and divided.

Facing turmoil and fighting hate,

words pronounced with fists out straight.

Lovingly they surrender all their will,

helping others despite the shrills.

Cherishing another before self-pride,

from injustice unwilling to ever hide.

They are the ones who truly pray,

in the hope for better days.

Hurting deep inside,

they never hide,

facing tragedy head on.

The strong may in numbers

be a few,

but God bless their deeds

for me and

for you.

Invisible Footprint

It is often hard to imagine that our actions have consequences far-reaching than we imagine. Well, this contemporary original poem Invisible Footprint by creative Elle Smith, allows you to pause for a moment to think about the footprints we seemingly leave on the planet in terms of pollution, damage to the ecosystem, loss of endangered species and climate change. Hopefully, if we collectively pause to consider the consequences we will all interact with the planet in a more meaningful way.

A Right Time to Die

We are all familiar with the Benjamin Franklin quote:  “Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Well, we all must eventually succumb to death, and this original poem 'A Right Time To Die' by Elle Smith explores in a humorous piece of poetry a battle to remain alive whilst in the clutches of death.

Monsters in the Room

This a reflective, contemporary poem about the multiple personalities that we all exhibit as human beings. Often reserved for psychology and psychiatry, we mostly perceive the thin line between mental health issues to be much more remote from our lives. However, Elle Smith tackles this inner torture in her original poem 'Monsters in the Room', which delicately shows us that life places many pressures and challenges on individuals. This poetry is thought-provoking in a positive way, as to how we cope with these matters.
