It’s been a while since I last participated in Silver Threading and Ronovan Writes‘s Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge, so I’m jumping back in with a new piece today! With everything that’s been going on in my life lately, I really needed some creative inspiration this month. I hope you’ll enjoy my post for this challenge!


The theme for this week was strength. I know I usually pick author quotes for these challenges, so just for fun, today I went with a quote from a popular fictional character instead:


We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. – Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (J.K. Rowling, 2000)

Harry Potter has been one of my favorite book series since I was a child, and I remember always admiring Albus Dumbledore for his wisdom. Though the context of this quote is the foreshadowing of a war against Dark magic, Dumbledore’s words are just as relevant to the real world trials of good versus evil. So on that note, here’s a short poem I wrote inspired by these wise words. Enjoy!

Stronger United
How strong can we be
When we stand on our own,
When we pull our own weight,
Face our problems alone?
We may each try to be
The strongest at heart,
But with more foes than friends,
We will all fall apart.

How much stronger are we
When we all stand together,
Like brothers in arms
And birds of a feather?
When we fight the same battles
And chase the same dreams,
In the end we will prove
That true strength is in teams.

We are only as strong
As we are united,
And only as weak
As we are divided.
Victory comes
When no one gives in,
For divided we fall,
But united we win.

I hope you enjoyed my poem! Be sure to join the Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge and share your quote-inspired works! Thanks for reading!
