Short Poems

1. “Quiet Reflection”
The world outside is bustling loud,
But in my mind, it’s quiet as a shroud.
I sit and think of days gone by,
And ponder on the reasons why.

2. “Unseen Strength”
The tree stands tall, its branches wide,
With roots so strong, it cannot hide,
The winds may howl and bend its form,
But it withstands the fiercest storm.

3. “Worth the Wait”
The rain falls softly, drop by drop,
It seems as though it’ll never stop.
But soon the clouds will part their way,
And sunshine will come out to play.

4. “New Beginnings”
The sun rises slow, a brand new day,
A chance to start in a different way.
Leave behind yesterday’s regrets and pain,
And embrace the opportunities that remain.

Medium Poems

The Weight of Time

Tick-tock goes the clock,
As I sit here and ponder
On the weight of time that rocks
The very foundation we wander.

Moments fleeting like the wind
Leaves us with memories to cling
To the stories that we spin
Of loves and losses that bring

A sense of joy or despair
Of past regrets we cannot change
Of future hopes that we bear
To live a life that’s not strange.

Tick-tock goes the clock,
As I sit here and wonder
On the weight of time that knocks
On our doors, loud like thunder.

The Last Goodbye

The morning sun shines bright
On the fields of golden wheat
That dance in the gentle light
As I stand there with bated breath and beat.

He walks to me with tears in his eyes
And takes me in his arms
Saying his last goodbye
As I succumb to his charms.

He whispers words of love and hope
As we hold each other tight
That help me to cope
With the loss that I will fight.

The sun sets on the horizon
As I watch him fade away
Leaving me with the last season
Of love that we shared in sway.

Long Poems

Life’s Journey

Life’s journey is long and winding,
Full of twists and turns, never blinding.
We walk through valleys deep and dark,
But we reach mountain peaks with every spark.

Challenges arise with every step,
But we learn to push ourselves and never forget,
That the journey is the destination in itself,
And we must embrace it with strength and stealth.

We make memories along the way,
Of laughter, love, and joy to stay.
With family and friends by our side,
We face each obstacle with courage and pride.

We fall sometimes, but we get back up,
With grace and determination, we never give up.
Our wounds heal, but our scars remain,
A testament to the battles we’ve gained.

As days go by and years fly past,
We grow wiser, with experiences amassed.
Life’s journey may be long, but it’s worth the ride,
For it’s in the journey that we truly thrive.

The Journey of Life

Life is a journey, they say
A windy path, a bumpy way
It starts with a cry, a newborn’s voice
And ends with a breath, the last of our choice

We grow and learn, and make mistakes
We climb mountains and cross lakes
We build relationships and mend broken hearts
We cry over losses and celebrate new starts

As kids we dream of what’s to come
We want the world, we want to have fun
As teens we rebel, we push and pull
We think we’re invincible, we’re sure we’re cool

But life has a way of humbling us down
Making us realize we’re not the only clown
There are struggles and challenges we must face
There are fears and doubts we must embrace

Yet we keep going, we keep moving forward
We search for meaning, for purpose, for reward
We find love, we find friendship, we find joy
We find hope, we find peace, we find a reason to enjoy

And as we age, we look back with pride
At all that we’ve done, at all that we’ve tried
We see the scars, the wrinkles, the gray hair
And we smile, knowing that life’s a dare

So here’s to the journey, the bumpy ride
The ups and downs, the twists and turns we can’t decide
Here’s to the laughter, the tears, the memories we hold
To the moments that shape us, to the stories we’ve told

May our journey be long, may it be rich and full
May we have love, may we have faith, may we have a soul
May we make a difference, may we leave a mark
May we look back at our lives and say: I made it, I did my part.
