Jennifer Garner shared a message of hope on Thursday, posting an uplifting poem by Cleo Wade about overcoming adversity and reports her ex Ben Affleck is having marital issues with wife Jennifer Lopez.

The 54-year-old actress posted the poem, titled "It Gets Better," which assures readers that tough times are temporary.

"You will not have the blues forever," the poem begins. "Forever/Is the only thing that lasts forever. 

“When the night sky falls upon you/Look up at her/see the darkness and the vastness of her blues/hold your eyes steady on her/watch the sun sneak in/see how even she, the great big sky/changes with/the new day." The poem concludes with a comforting reminder: "This too shall pass."

Jennifer shared the poem on her Instagram Stories, tagging Cleo Wade and adding a heart emoji, but refrained from adding any personal commentary. 

This message of resilience comes amidst swirling rumors about marital troubles faced by her ex-husband Ben Affleck and his current wife, Jennifer Lopez.
