The Other Side

On the other side of hurt is healing

On the other side of darkness is discovery

On the other side of trial is triumph

On the other side of grief is growth

On the other side of pain is possibility

On the other side of loss are lessons

On the other side of wounds is wisdom

On the other side of failure is fortitude

On the other side of crying is courage

On the other side of mistakes is maturity

Never give up and you will never be denied

No matter what the challenges forge ahead to the other side.Cory Booker

Written by Cory Booker, former Mayor of Newark, current U.S. Senator, and POET. I love this man’s poetry and decided to share one of my favorites.

    Really enjoyed that. Common theme, but so much more meaning to me personally through those particular words.

      I agree. And the alliteration wasn’t necessary but it didn’t interfere at all with the quality of the poem, somehow, amazingly.
