The Survivors

The Survivors

While watching the movie; “Soul Surfer”, I was inspired to write this poem, and begin a series where we learn from the great survivors of our time and times before now. This will lead to us finding hope no matter what we have faced or what we are going through… Someone has been where you are right now…

Title: The Survivors

They are made from storms, pain and hurt

They see life from different perspectives

Having passed through defining experiences

They live to learn not just learn to live


They are life’s music, everyone loves to hear them

They move against all odds

Surfing through the biggest waves

Soaring within the wildest winds, striving in challenges


Their will is tougher than diamond

Their courage, stronger than any known rock

Their dreams remain unmelted but are refined even in the hottest flames

Their hearts are as brave as the king of the jungle


They are Survivors

Born from the deadly claws of fate

Passed through life’s fiercest furnace

The result of earth’s mating with hell


They are life’s heroes

They are life’s victims

They are life’s contenders

And ultimately life’s testimonies


They are Survivors

They stand victorious

They live as conquerors

They defeated life at it’s own game


They are Survivors

Though battered from the contest

They have come out better

Though wounded, they also have wounded the very core of life’s norm


Call them veterans

They have seen it all

They made their home in the very heart of life’s cruelty

And made a living out of life’s hunt for blood


They have lived through times and seasons

Time became their teacher

Seasons became their classes in the school of life

The scars are life’s way of certifying them


They see what others cannot see

They feel what others cannot feel

What counts to them is not just being counted

But that their lives eventually count


Giving up was never am option

Perseverance became part of their daily meal

No retreat, no surrender

This was their battle cry


They challenged life at it’s core

Life’s soldiers fell in their wake

Intimidating structures built by life crumbled before them

They are the survivors.
