POEMS: “Listen” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox





“Whoever you are as you read this,
Whatever your trouble or grief,
I want you to know and to heed this:
The day draweth near with relief.

No sorrow, no woe is unending,
Though heaven seems voiceless and dumb;
So sure as your cry is ascending,
So surely an answer will come.

Whatever temptation is near you,
Whose eyes on this simple verse fall;
Remember good angels will hear you
And help you to stand, if you call.

Though stunned with despair I beseech you,
Whatever your losses, your need,
Believe, when these printed words reach you,
Believe you were born to succeed.

You are stronger, I tell you, this minute,
Than any unfortunate fate!
And the coveted prize – you can win it;
While life lasts ’tis never too late!”

-Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    1. Thank you Jackie for your comment, and I am glad it brought you inspiration today. Sometimes is hard to believe but when we face the darkest times in our lives is when we are closest to dawn, and after the most terrible storms, the sun always shines again. Trust that whatever is going on in your life right now “shall pass”. Sending light and love your way, Amira ❤
