Fear/Break Loose/

Inspiring and encouraging others to break free from what’s holding them back from a great and fulfilling life

SMILE (Poem)

What is life?

Is it a precious gem that we admire

Is it valuable enough to desire?

Is it a wilted flower that blows away with the wind

And its significance is non-existent and despised by men

What do we do with this life that we have?

What is the truth behind my existence on this Earth?

Am I assigned a responsibility to carry out because of my birth

Should I pursue my dreams and fulfill my every desire

If my life was all about that, then I will just be a liar…..

Let me find a wall to write on so I can tell the true story of my life

From a cheerful child to a depressed soul, I lost my happiness

Picked out to be the target of bullying and cruel words

I kept my silence and refuse to speak up

As years pass by, only anger and depression built up inside

Breathe flows through my body to show signs that I am alive

But it does not matter to me because inside I already died

If it satisfies people, to deem me as a joke and a misfit

Then they will cheer at the news of my death……….

……..But must I give up my life because of people’s words

Leaving behind hopes and dreams unfulfilled for a lie

Abandoned my smile over what someone thinks about me

Is my life made valuable by people’s validation

Because they never gave it to me……..

Neither did my circumstances create me

Harsh words crush a spirit and a frown builds a sad demeanor

Kind words give healing and a smile brightens a whole day

Everyone has a choice to either live in the truth God speaks

Or die from harsh judgments, Satan’s lies, daunting regrets

After you spend this one life, there is no refund or exchange

So what does life mean……Take the chance given to live…..

In writing this poem for my book, I wanted to share a personal moment in my teens when I considered committed suicide. At that time, I was being talked about a lot and soon reached my breaking point. I felt I could not confine in anyway about what was going on with me but felt that my life was of no value. Since I am writing this today, you can confirm that I did not go through with it. My smile is a lesson for others to not give up on your life. You are meant to thrive. You are meant to be love and accepted. You are definitely cherished! I hope you enjoyed this poetic piece and feel free to share it with someone that needs it…

About Me

Hi..My name is ShuCora Walker. No, I am not the woman in the picture, but my words represent people like her. People who love good conversations. People who enjoy sharing their life stories. People who tell the truth to not only inspire but to heal, learn, and grow. I have been writing since my preteen years and found peace in letting my heart bleed out on the paper through my words. The focus of my writing has always been to share stories of triumph, struggles, and faith because God is the reason why I write. I remember at one point that I wanted to take my life, but God deemed it not to be because He still had a purpose for my life. Now, I am using my words to share my life journey so others can learn from it. Yes, one day I plan to open up this platform to other writers so we can continue to learn from different experiences of life. So, this is a space for anyone seeking to live a life of real freedom and enjoy some good moments along the way…
