17 Poems On Love, Loss And Survival That You Should Read If You Feel Broken

There are moments in life that leave you feeling completely and utterly broken. You know, moments when you feel like you’re walking on broken glass, like every step is fragile and painful. And then there are moments where you feel lighter than a feather, wrapped up in love and happiness. The brokenness you live through to get to the happiness – that, my friend, is survival. And I never quite understood that until I came across Caroline White’s poetry. See, Caroline lived through depression and went on to turn it into art; into words that speak to people across countries. And if you ever feel like life isn’t going to get better – let her words serve as a gentle reminder that sooner or later, you will be more than just okay.

The courage it takes for this…

Don’t let the future cloud your past.

And in the end, we’re all equal.

To people worth falling for.

Life is what happens when we’re busy making other plans.

To the people who make the past beautiful.

To the beautiful things that happen when you stop seeking validation.

Scars, so full of stories.

Armours aren’t always made of metal.

Some people make it all better.

It all has a purpose.

Do not change who you are for anyone.

Hope that haunts and heals.

Not everyone is good for you. Remember that.

Love isn’t always romantic.

Love is a miracle, so do not try to understand it.

And there are some things you cannot change.
