I wrote this poem as a reminder of the strength and resilience that lies within each and every one of us. The poem titled “Dare to Bear” is a reminder to myself to continue going and to dare to bear, to keep my heart open even if I’m experiencing pain from what life has thrown my way, and to find the courage and strength to keep on going, no matter how hard it gets.

Dare to Bear

With an open heart, we can dare
To face the pain and to bear the glare
Of all the hurt, doubts, and fears
That try to hold us back through years

But in that bearing, in that choice
We gain a strength, a new-found voice
To live and love, to truly be
Connected, whole, and truly free

For when we close our hearts in fear
We lock ourselves away, unclear
Of all the beauty that surrounds
And all the love that can be found

So I let my heart break and shatter
again and again,
moment by moment, I allow it to flutter
For in the breaking, I am truly alive
In pain, I found the will to strive

And though sometimes it’s tough
I know that an open heart is enough
To face the truth and the reality of life
With all its joys and pains,
There’s not much lost but only gained

For in the bearing of the unbearable
I’ve found my strength, my will to live,
my need to strive, accept, move on, and be,
My courage, my ultimate Love, and my will to give.

I wrote this poem as a reminder of the strength and resilience that lies within each and every one of us. It’s a reminder to myself to continue going and to dare to bear, to keep my heart open even if I’m experiencing pain from what life has thrown my way, and to find the courage and strength to keep on going, no matter how hard it gets.

We all have moments of doubt, fear and uncertainty. We all have times when we feel like giving up. But this poem is my reminder that it’s in those very moments I have the opportunity to find my true strength, my true voice, and my true self.

When we close our hearts in fear, we lock ourselves away from the beauty and Love that surrounds us. But when we dare to bear, we open ourselves up to the reality of life and all its joys and pains. And in that bearing, we find the courage and strength to live and Love, to connect deeply, to become whole and truly free.

So now, again, at this very moment, I’m opening my heart, continuing to dare to bear, finding the courage and strength to keep going. Because in the end, that’s what matters. That’s what gives me the will to strive, to accept, to move on, and to be. That’s what gives me the courage to face the truth and the reality of life and to live it to the fullest.

Be Alive🌱,
❤ Love, Julia
