Favorite Poems From Instagram

There are many different types of poetry forms. Some poems are long and have multiple rhyming stanzas. Others are short and succinct with no rhyme scheme. Each type creates a different reading experience and evokes different emotions.

This collection is filled with poems from some of our favorite Instagram poets. These poets are talented in their art and write directly from the heart. The raw emotions in their poetry can clearly be seen.

They have given us permission to share their poems with our readers. Many of these poets have published their own books of poetry. Although these poems are short, they are powerful.

Sharing poetry with others is a very personal experience. It means baring your soul for the world to see, but poetry brings hope and healing. For the reader, it’s always comforting to read a piece that makes you realize you’re not alone. It’s comforting to know someone else understands.

We hope you find poems that speak directly to you. May you be encouraged by these short pieces!

  7. Fixing A Broken Heart

    • By Blake Auden
    • Published by Family Friend Poems January 2021 with permission of the Author.

    I can't tell you about healing. But I can tell you about moving forward; about not standing still and hoping the fires behind you don't reach you. Some days there is bravery in just moving your feet, especially when you have no idea where it is you're meant to be going.

    • By Blake Auden
    • Published by Family Friend Poems October 2020 with permission of the Author.

    I’ve been holding on to little fragments of you for a long time, because I could never bring myself to let you go all at once.

    But deep down, I know I need to let go of these pieces. I can’t move on when I’m living next to these reminders of the people we were - the way we wrapped ourselves in each other. I don’t know what healing is meant to look like, but this feels like a good place to start.

    No matter our situation or circumstance. Whether we are walking atop hope, full of peace, wrestling with fear, or overwhelmed with life in general...God is always present. In our victory and turmoil His concern and love for us never waivers. And through all my weeping, these roads paved with tears and joy, God has never failed me. Or forgotten me.

    for the night, but
