Gears is a poem written by Jemica Colasito and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Finding Your Voice for the month of September
Within us all, unique gears we hold, Shielding from harm, as stories unfold. Our strengths cleverly, we employ, Outsmarting troubles that might annoy.
Nature’s armor, strong and true, Rising above, in challenges we grew. Through trials we face, with unwavering stride, Inner gears as guides, by our side.
In life’s storms, gears of courage stay, Never bending, come what may. Turning together, the resilience they share, Hope and strength, a steadfast pair.
Gears of empathy, connections they make, Building bridges, no barriers to break. With compassion’s touch, hearts align, Love’s unifying, endless sign.
When shadows cast, and skies turn gray, Gears of determination light our way. Driving us forward, unyielding and bright, In their steady rhythm, we take flight.
Remember this truth, forever known, Strength within us, like seeds sown. With wit, compassion, united we set sail, Our unique gears weave a tale, never frail.
