House of Haiku

My Strength

Releasing fake pride
I apologize if wrong.
When I am most lost
or I am the most damaged
surrender to brokenness.

Strength comes from deep down.
I have ceased fighting all things.
My spirit is strong.
I request help when needed.
Surrender when I’m weakest.




Haiku is a form of poetry usually inspired by nature, which embraces simplicity. We invite all poetry lovers to have a go at composing Haiku. Be warned. You could become addicted.
