Since I am "poetically challenged", and I love to read all of your guys poems, Please feel free to write your poems in this forum.
Ive never really been a poem writer either, as they dont come very easily to me, but after reading chassidy and Lone's poems (well, some of them anyway) they really inspired me, so i thought id give it a shot writing my own poem. This is for my best friend...thank u 4 always being there 4 me. One day i was sitting, watching the world pass me by. The next i was waiting, waiting to die. Life didnt seem to have a point anymore. What was the use of trying to fly? When i kept getting my feet flipped out from underneath me, the world, seemingly, not even wanting me to try. But then i met this person, and he changed my life around. He's the best friend i've ever had; he's the best friend i've ever found. I'm sure if you have a special person like this in your life, you'll get where i'm coming from, cos until i met this guy, i didnt feel like i belonged. But now every day, i have something to look forward to, And i just wanna tell u buddy, how much that i adore you! You're the best, you easily beat the rest. So thank you for being you, mate, And finding me before it was too late.
this is a poem i wrote for my family MY FAMILY i can here my mother blowing smoke from her mouth as she in stress from work ican here my dad playing the drums on suday mornings as he's playing with his band ican here my brothers screaming and yelling as they wrestle my mother the earth my father the sun my brothers the lillies as they blow in the wind it doesn't really make sense but it from the bottom of my heart hope you liked it thax :) audrey :)
Vast as the ocean, Unfathamable as the sea, Often i sit and wonder, At this mystery. No one can choose a time or place For this miricle to occur. But if you find urself inlove, I know i for one, just wanted to share! Wanted to tell everyone how great it was, I've never felt anything like it! I'm so lucky to have this special gift, And i'm honestly so excited!
So much of the time, I feel so alone, Yet I'm constantly surrounded. I can't seem to get away from all the fuss, Especially not when I'm grounded! Why did you make life so tough? Why so much to suffer from? Why is there so much conflict and pain? Why can't everyone just get along? I'm not asking for a perfect world, Cos that'd be too boring, But I want something where I can get along, And not constantly feel like I'm falling. There's so much stuff I want to do, So much I have to learn. Yet why does it always seem, That I'm in this battle alone? There's somany people in this world, Who have yet to find life's meaning. I know I'm not on this journey alone, But Lord, please help me to keep on believeing. I know you are always there for us, Ready with a helping hand, Thank you for giuding us on this path, And making our foundations from rock instead of sand.
WoW FreeFall... some very nice writing ..i am impressed..keep writing :) This one i wrote this morning
Depression Have you ever had those days When things , dont go right Or you argu with a friend And it turns to a fight Have you ever had a day When everythigs wrong And you cant even listen To your favourite song Have you ever had a day And it keeps dragging on You feel like your in a chess game And your only a pawn Have you ever given someone bad advice Have you ever not liked somthing But you said it was nice Have you ever just wanted to get away Or have you ever just wanted ..to start a new day Have you ever felt lonely and you've wanted to cry And your sitting there thinking , and just wondering why Well i know these feelings ..and they call it depression It feels like my brain has gone into resession I get lonely and teary ..and all shaky inside I cry and i try to put my fears aside I know there's some out there ..that feel just the same But thats life i guess Its just part of the game but i try my hardest to show people i care And just ask for respect ...thats only fare..
A Thought In My Heart I carry A thought in my heart Its a simple reminder to me Of the fact, that im a Christian No matter, where i may be This Tiny thought, it's not majic Nor is it a good luck charm It isnt meant to protect me From any physicial harm It's part of imagination It's not for the world to see It's simply an understanding Between our lord and me It reminds me to be thankful For the blessings day by day And it helps me to serve him better By all that i do and say Its also a daily reminder Of the peace and confort i share With all who know our master And give themselves to his care So i carry this thought in my heart Reminding no one but me That God all mighty is Lord of my life If i only let him be [img=
Here's one i had written back in 1999.
Love Turns Bad
The love that we had is now breaking, Our hearts that were once happy are now aching. We say things to each other in vain, That only cause us alot of pain. You say you love me, and I say I love you, But at the same time we are tearing our hearts in two. We fight over petty things each day, Why did our love have to go this way? I hope we pass this time of pain fast, So that the love we once had can forever last.
such beautiful words..... ok u lot heres another one .....There was a young girl from Cape Cod, Who thought babies came only from God. T'wasn't the Almighty Who lifted her nightie. T'was Roger the Lodger by god!..........
Sorry to say Jingle_Balls but my poems dont come from any books .. they come from my heart . .. Try to find this one in any book i finished this poem a half hour ago.. The Devil and Me
The devil was searching for souls one night And he happened to come across mine I told him right there.to just give it up but if he wanted to try ..thats just fine He told me out right, that he would have it tonight Because my soul belonged to him And then i replied ..the lord is my god And he has forgiven my sin Well the devil roared out, with a might clap He said, your soul.. it belongs to me You've been sinning young lady, all your life and its time to come to me. I kneeled down and i cried..and i told him ive lied Then i said ..dont come round here no more. And ive been talking to God, and he told me last night He was waiting, and has unlocked the door. Then i told that devil ,with a trembling voice Get out of my life forever. You can play games, and try to make me decieve But you really not all that clever You see ..my God is here watching He takes care of me.,and theres nowhere for you to hide You can try your best, at what ever you do .. but the Lord my God's on my side You can try to distract me ..you can try to attract me You can do what ever you want But the Lord Gods my sheppard .. and to me your a leppard And i will not allow you to taunt. Then the lightning bolts flashed..and the thunder crashed And right then my saviour appeared. Then that devil backed away .and said till another day For now you have found the one i feared
This is a poem i wrote..when that tragedy occured in New York with the Twin Towers..which was sent to the Washington Post I lit a little candle for you all last night And I prayed to god to put things right Words cannot describe the way that i feel But I hope in time that things will heal The pain and suffering caused by these fears Will never be forgotten for many years I send you all my love on this very sad day My prayers with you all in every way StreamLine
I remember you sending this to me a while back Streambabe... I'm glad you decided to include it here... it's a true original...and it belongs here.... as a New Yorker myself it holds a very special meaning to me (as you know) I would like to post a photo here to go along with it... thank you again.. (hugs) GHOST [img=
Whispering words, from silent souls But i cant hear, what the future holds I hear there voices, in my head and then i realised ..that i am dead I feel the cold, inside my bones I hear angel voices, of different tones And as i lay here, down to rest I remmanise life, i tried my best But i left this world, not knowing why I left family and friends, sitting to cry I wasnt ready, to leave this life I left three children , and my wife And now its too late, to show all my love For the angels are coming, from up above And now they will take me, from this place To a new world of theres, ..that is full of grace The angels described, this place to me And assured me now , that i was free They said not to worry.. and not to be sad Cause i was reuniting, with my mom and dad But i still do miss, my family so .. the angels took me, but i cant let go. I cant understand ,why this has happened to me I just want to go back ... to my family Now i sit here, in limbo. and i asked, the Lord why I said why did you take me... i wasnt ready to die The lord smiled at me, and said my dear son You are here with me now, a new journy's begun You forefilled your achievments, you did very well Now rejoice, your in heaven... this isnt helll I placed you on earth, thats were you were needed You achieved all your goals ..and three children were seeded So ive brought you back home, to be on my front line And dont worry my child ..your family is fine
My love My love, From heaven above, god gave you to me, To love, hold, cuddle & comfort which is in need the most , Now,seems as if we were meant to be. Without a clue, one day we meet, You and I found out after that, We were more than friends,way more than dat. It was like god sent an someone just for me, Which turned out to be you with those eyes of blue, To someone like me for a dream to come true, So glad for the chance to have found you, my love.
chassy.....Jingle_Balls ,Jingle_Balls Jingle all the way It took one hour , to do that poem How long have you been G@Y ?.......now your not much of a poet are u?.....must have took u ages to think of that one
"Eyes In The Sky" Imagine you where sitting there all calm on a plane, There was not even a problem, no wind or no rain. Your on your way, to go see some friends, Have not the slightest idea, that your life's about to end. You think to yourself how lovely life is, And in a couple of years how you might want some kids. Your 21 years old and got plenty to go, Plenty to go? At least you think so. A sound grabs your ears but from where you don't know, You peek down the isle to see what's the show. A man yells sit down, shut up and don't move, Then 4 others stand up and add to the group. Your scared out of your mind, and your inner most fears, Have just showed themselves and from your eyes come some tears. You look out the window and see down below, A city with cars and buildings that glow. You think to yourself there's no way it can be, This can't be New York down there that you see. You get closer and closer with every second gone by, You know now for sure that you are going to die. Down and down the big jet goes, Where it's headed only God knows. All of the sudden you see a huge flash, Your body is burned into a pile of ash. As your soul floats away you see the building below, Another plane crashes, and now the sky glows. You see all this terror from your eyes in the sky, As you float up to heaven; The final goodbye.
