Nadezhda Aleksandrovna Montik, USA



There is a reason for every
ounce of pain and sorrow,
if only to make us stronger
for what's to come tomorrow.

We learned to fly
with broken wings,
into a sunrise without
knowing what it brings.

We discovered how to dream new
dreams when everything disappears,
and we perfected the smile
that shines through precious tears.

Somehow we figured out how to
love with a breaking heart,
and how to laugh inside a world
that keeps falling apart.

But above staying strong and
holding on to our pride,
we discovered that who we are
is what we are on the inside.

No matter what they say and
no matter what they do,
God's brilliant undying love
will always keep shining through.

He made us strong and beautiful and
gave us hearts that reflect His grace,
so no matter what we go through,
we are always in God's embrace.

Jacqueline Applewhite This is the most meaningful piece of poetry I have read in a long, long time. It's understood that the artist who crafted these encouraging words has been through every human tragedy, but come out smelling like a rose instead of the ashes of destruction. The Poetess has properly interpreted God's abundance mercy and grace upon those who trust in his mighty hand to deliver. Bravo,Nadezhda Aleksandrovna Montik, USA! I love this!
