Short Poems

1. “Dear World”

Dear world,
I plead with you to hear,
The longing in my heart,
A desperate, silent tear.

2. “My People”

My people, my strength,
In you, I find my home,
Together we rise,
And never again, do we roam.

3. “The Struggle”

A struggle always present,
Injustice, biting at the core,
But in the midst of all chaos,
My spirit will continue to soar.

4. “The Unseen”

The invisible threads that bind us,
Keep us together in a hidden way,
Unseen and unknown,
Yet, stronger every day.

Medium Poems

The Unseen Ones

We walk among the unseen ones
Those lost in shadows and despair
With heavy hearts and weary souls
They roam this world without a care

We see them every single day
Yet look the other way, afraid
But what harm could a smile bring?
Or a kind word softly said?

So let us be the light they need
A beacon shining bright and true
To guide them from the darkest depths
Into the warmth of life anew

For we are all just human beings
With struggles, hopes, and fears
And every act of kindness shared
Can wipe away a lifetime of tears

A Dandelion’s Dance

A dandelion’s dance, so free and wild
A radiant flower in a world so mild
It sways with the wind, with no destination
Content in its beauty, without hesitation

The world may try to clip its wings
But it refuses to be tamed, it sings
Its yellow petals glowing bright
A symbol of joy, a pure delight

So let us learn from this simple bloom
To be unafraid of the uncertain gloom
To dance with abandon, to follow our heart
And let our light shine, a work of art

Long Poems

For My People

I stand here today, for my people,
The ones who’ve been pushed down and made feeble.
Those who’ve been silenced and forced to stay low,
And those whose voices were muffled by the blow.

For my people who were torn from their homes,
And left to suffer beneath foreign domes.
Those who were stripped of their sacred lands,
And forced to flee from their ancestral stands.

I stand here today, for my people,
Whose struggles were buried under a steeple.
Whose rights were denied for being different,
And whose livelihoods were ruined in an instant.

For my people who were discriminated against,
And punished for being themselves, with no defense.
Those who were forced to assimilate,
And lose the very essence of their culture’s state.

I stand here today, for my people,
And vow to fight for their rights as an equal.
To uplift them from their struggles and pain,
And to give them the chance to rise again.

For my people who’ve been oppressed for far too long,
And whose resilience and strength make them strong.
Those who’ve stood the test of time and history,
And emerged victorious, despite misery.

So let this be a message to my people,
That their voices will be heard and their hardships made visible.
That their struggles and sacrifices won’t be in vain,
And that we stand together, to break the chains.

For my people, I stand here today,
To give them hope and pave the way.
To let them know they’re not alone in their plight,
And that together, we’ll fight for what’s right.

For My People

For my people, I raise my voice
For every woman, man, and child
For those who never had a choice
For the lost, the hurt, the exiled

For my people, I fight for justice
For the oppressed and the marginalized
For those who never got to trust us
For every heart that’s been compromised

For my people, I take a stand
For every time they’ve been silenced
For those judged by race or land
For every soul that’s been coerced and blinded

For my people, I will not falter
For every truth that needs to be told
For those whose lives have been altered
For every story that needs to be unfold

For my people, I demand change
For every soul that’s been wronged
For those who’ve been forced to exchange
For every voice that’s been drowned

For my people, I pledge my life
For every moment of suffering
For those who’ve been living in strife
For every wound that needs buffering

For my people, I will not rest
For every soul that needs to be heard
For those who’ve been put to the test
For every oppressor who must be deterred

For my people, I stand here strong
For every challenge yet to be conquered
For those who’ve been forced to belong
For every mindset that needs to be altered

For my people, I raise my voice
For every woman, man, and child
For those who never had a choice
For the lost, the hurt, the exiled.
