Inspirational Poem

I am a student, a learner, a righteous person. I am a poet. I am someone who will sit down on my free time with my own free will, and write a poem. When I write, I feel like my whole body, is in balance. I am not a person who when disagrees on something, will stand up and speak my mind right then and now. What I would do is go home take out a sheet of paper, and write what I am thinking. Poetry is my refuge, my sacred thing, something no one can take away from me. I am a poet and proud to be one.

Circle Of Life

© Carly Nasch
Life is a carousel. Always going forward, never going back.
Existence is a hard thing to keep when you stop trying.
To live a life, you must want to live.
To want to live you must find a way.
When all hope is lost you must stand tall.
When all others retreat you must prevail.
You are the conscious inside your head.
You create your own destiny.
Life is a very hard thing to keep
when your life does not always go the way you plan.
Fight for your life and the right to keep dreaming.
If you feel you were gifted, share your gift.
If you feel you were cursed, fix it.
As you get older, your life becomes a challenge.
Who are you?
What do you want in life?
What will you be?
What is your purpose in life?
If you worry, these things will turn into burdens.
But if you hold on to them in the back of your mind,
all of the answers will come in time.
Life is a carousel, always going forward never going back.
Look to the future not to the past.
