6 Empowering Poems about Self-Worth, Struggle & Rebirth

6 Empowering Poems about Self-Worth, Struggle & Rebirth

Life doesn’t feel new and beautiful all the time. These poems about self-worth speak to that journey: it’s yours, after all. You’re here. That’s incredible enough. And that’s all the proof you need to start becoming the person you most want to be.

These poems about self-worth point to what’s possible and what’s true: you’re creative because you’re here to create. You’re worthy because you’re here. You’re allowed to grow into who you want to be without being rescued by someone else.

If you stop waiting to be rescued, you can start freeing your own self. You can be new. And that’s a beautiful thing.

6 Poems about Self-Worth and New Life

I hope one day

Your human body

Is not a jail cell,

Instead it’s a sunny

2pm garden with daisies 

Thriving because of 

Self love.

— Alexa Evangelista, you deserve better

 

I am missing something

I do not want anymore.

I am new now,

Better now than I ever was

Before.

I was bleeding once

From this place of war.

Now, flowers spring forth.

I have been reborn.

— Jennifer Williamson, Growing Through Cracks

 

I have been waiting for my greatest self to rescue me my entire life. Now I realize that I must go to her.

 

be softer with you.

you are a breathing thing.

a memory to someone.

a home to a life.

— Nayyirah Waheed

 

I love the sound of

Vulnerability reminding me that

My heart was right

All along.

— Jennifer Williamson, My Truth

 

“The surest way to lose your self-worth is by trying to find it through the eyes of others.” — Becca Lee

 

I sleep.

Enfolded in peace.

The agony and pain

Disappear:

The burning, the sorrow, the flame

Enfolded in peace.

 

I wake.

Entranced by life.

Remembering fire

Inside;

Death before sleep, and now

Entranced by life.

 

I rise.

Enraptured by flight.

The strength within

Burning.

Spreading my wings, I soar

Enraptured by flight.

— Steve Danielson, From the Ashes (listen to this poem set to music)

 

Without a shattered and

Lost heart,

I may not have discovered the

Courage to build my life

Better than before.

— Jennifer Williamson, Mosaic

 

You're worthy of being new, of living better, because you're here and you're alive. That's all the proof you need.
