Short Poems

1. “Lost and Found”
I wander long and far
Searching for what I am
Passing through realms of confusion
Determined to find the truth in the end

2. “Discovered”
A light has shone on a path
Leading me towards my soul
A unique self-identity
Finally, I am whole

3. “Breaking Free”
Breaking the chains of the past
Leaving behind what was once true
Fledging wings of independence
Embracing the unknown, my future anew

4. “Graceful Change”
From caterpillar to butterfly
Transformation, evolution
Smoothly and gracefully
I embrace self-revolution.

Journey Within

I’ve spent so long searching for who I am
Looking outside myself, following a plan
But recently, I’ve learned the truth
That searching within is what I must do

It’s not an easy path, I must admit
Facing my fears, my faults, my grit
But as I dig deep, uncovering my soul
I find a strength, a fire, a goal

I’m discovering parts of myself I’d forgotten
Traits I’ve hidden, secrets I’ve not spoken
And though it’s a journey with no end
I’m grateful for the chance to find a friend

The person I am, deep down inside
A force to be reckoned with, a spirit that cannot hide
So I’ll keep searching, day by day
For the person I am, in every way

And though it may be a lonely road to take
I wouldn’t have it any other way


Sometimes life can feel like a maze
A puzzle we can’t seem to solve in a daze
And when we’ve hit rock bottom, feeling lost
We wonder if we’ll ever pay the cost

But there’s hope in the darkest of places
A light that shines on our faces
It’s the chance to start anew
To let go of the old and embrace the true

We can rise like a phoenix from the ashes
A new life, a new path, a whole new passion
It’s not always easy to leave the past behind
But with a little courage, we’ll find what we’ve been trying to find

A purpose, a calling, a reason to be
A new version of ourselves, finally set free
So when life feels like it’s falling apart
Remember, it’s just the start

Of a journey, a story, a brand new chapter
One where we can choose our own adventure
So take a step, then another, and another
And embrace the beautiful rebirth of each new day, like no other.

Long Poems

Discovering Myself

I’ve been wandering through life’s endless maze,
Feeling lost and alone on so many days.
I’ve searched high and low for a glimpse of me,
But it always seems like a distant fantasy.

I’ve tried to fit in, to blend and conform,
To be like others and live by the norm.
But I always felt like a stranger within,
Like I don’t quite belong, like I don’t quite fit in.

I’ve traveled far and wide, seeking a sign,
Something to guide me and help me define
Who I am, and what I want to be,
To find my own path, to finally be free.

I’ve climbed the highest mountains, crossed the deepest seas,
And explored the vastness of my own inner seas.
I’ve looked for myself in the eyes of strangers,
In the pages of books, in the songs of singers.

But it’s only when I stopped and looked inside,
That I found the true me that I’ve been trying to hide.
I realized that I am unique and special in my own way,
And my differences are what make me shine every day.

Now, instead of trying to blend and fit in,
I embrace my quirks and let my true self win.
I no longer fear what others might say,
I am the one in charge of my own way.

So when you feel lost and consumed in the maze,
Just remember- you hold the key to unlock the cage.
The true you is waiting so don’t hesitate,
The journey within is worth the wait.

The Journey to Rediscovery

I wandered through life, lost and unsure,
No direction, no purpose, nothing to endure.
I searched high and low, left and right,
But nothing seemed to bring me light.

I tried to fit in, tried to belong,
But every place I went felt wrong.
I wore different masks, played different roles,
But deep down inside, I felt like a troll.

I felt like an outcast, a misfit, a freak,
And every day felt like a losing streak.
Until one day, I decided to stop,
To take a break and drop the act.

I sat with myself and listened within,
To the voice that had been buried deep within.
And slowly but surely, I began to see,
The person I was meant to be.

I embraced my quirks, my flaws, my scars,
And slowly but surely, I began to open up my heart.
I started to see the beauty in imperfection,
And the power of self-acceptance and reflection.

I stopped chasing the approval of others,
And started to trust myself and discover,
My own unique path, my own true self,
And slowly but surely, I began to find wealth.

Not in material things, but in inner peace,
And the joy that comes from being at ease,
With who I am, with what I stand for,
And the journey that brought me to its door.

So if you too feel lost and unsure,
Remember that within you lies a cure,
A voice that is waiting to be heard,
And a journey that will lead you to self-reward.
