And one day, the girl with the books became the woman writing them.


Somehow we’ll make it,

We always do.

Although it gets hard,

We just need to push through.

Because somehow the light

Will shine though in the dark,

And melt every cold lonely heart.


We try and we try,

And we get broken down.

The water’s so high,

That it feels like we’ll drown.

We tread through the rain,

The sleet, and the snow.

But somehow we’ll make it,

This I know.


Somehow we’ll see it,

We do every time,

Although it’s unclear,

In this rough, endless climb.

But somehow the answers

Were there from the start,

To soothe every questioning heart.


We try and we try,

And we get broken down.

The water’s so high

That it feels like we’ll drown

We tread through the rain

The sleet and the snow.

But somehow we’ll make it,

This I know.


Oh, 

Why can’t we just walk through the fire?

Why can’t we just sing through the rain?

Why can’t we just hope for the answers,

And dance through the hurricanes?


Why can’t we just walk with each other?

Why can’t we just sing through the pain?

Why can’t we just hope for a promise

That everything will be okay?

 

‘Cause We try and we try,

And we get broken down.

The water’s so high,

That it feels like we’ll drown.

We tread through the rain,

The sleet, and the snow.

But somehow we’ll make it,

This I know.


Somehow, Somehow.

Oh, Somehow we’ll make it,

This I know.


The author's comments:

I wanted to write a poem that would give some hope to people who are going through tough things, to tell them that they can get through it. I'm going through some hard things at school right now, and writing a hopeful poem just helped me a little bit. So, to everyone out there who's going through something bad, you can do this! you can get through it.

Thank you so much Afra, I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m sure that must have been a really difficult time for you.

Somehow, I made it through the sudden grief and sorrow of my grandma passing away on the day before my exam(which is the foundation of a change in my entire life)...This amazing poem reminded me of it...Thank you for sharing it with us here...👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
