    A metaphor of a family to a tree, each branch integral to the whole.

    A Broken Family Tree

    Tradition Poem

    in Metaphor Poems

    I am one of many
    Small branches of a broken tree,
    Always looking to the ones above
    For guidance, strength and security.
    One little branch trying
    To keep the others from breaking away.
    Who will fall?
    And who will stay?
    Now I stand alone,
    Looking at the earth through the rain,
    And I see the broken branches I knew
    Scattered about me in pain.
    There are those who have taken an ax
    To the root of our very foundation
    And who have passed this destruction
    Down to every new generation.
    If I could take that ax,
    I would toss it deep into the sea,
    Never to return again
    To harm the generations that follow me.
    I am one of many,
    But alone I will go
    And plant the new seeds
    Where a beautiful tree will grow.

    Never Stop Being You

    Uplifting Poem About Making Life Better

    in Inspirational Poems

    Never stop caring about the little things in life.
    Never stop dreaming, and don't give into strife.
    Never stop wondering are we on our own.
    Never stop thinking has your spirituality grown.

    Never stop building bridges that lead to better tomorrows.
    Never stop trying, and don't give into sorrow.
    Never stop feeling amazed at the beauty that surrounds you.
    Never stop hearing the music, and don't give into the blues.

    Never stop pushing away negative thoughts that make you feel sad.
    Never stop looking at all the miracles we have had.
    Never stop loving the ones you hold dear.
    Never stop giving, and don't give into the fear.

    Never stop smiling, but look forward to each new day.
    Never stop shining in your own special way.
    Never forget that all storms will clear.
    Remember brighter tomorrows are always near.

    I'm Dying On The Inside

    • By Ashley
    • Published: March 2009

    in Depression Poems by Teens

    You see a smile on the outside,
    But that's all you can see.
    What if tears run down my face on the inside?

    You hear a laugh on the outside,
    But that's all you can hear.
    What if I'm crying out for help on the inside?

    You smell the scent I wear every day on the outside,
    But that's all you can smell.
    What if it smells of death on the inside?

    You feel soft, smooth skin on the outside,
    But that's all you feel.
    What if I'm being torn apart on the inside?

    You taste sweet lips kissing you on the outside,
    But that's all you can taste.
    What if my lips taste of blood on the inside?

    You can tell I'm happy on the outside,
    But what if you can't tell I'm dying on the inside?

    Every night I dream of how the world could be a better place. I long for the simplest of changes, simple acts of kindness, love, truth, and simple whispers of hope in the night sky. When I see these dreams each night as I pray, the only words that come to my mind are, "If only..."

    Poem About Hope For The World

    in ABC Poems

    If Only...
    A prayer was held in our nation,
    Beauty was seen in more ways than one,
    Children who are lost could find their salvation,
    Death was slain and torture was done.

    If Only...
    Earth was awakened after years of endurance,
    Forgotten feelings were rekindled anew,
    God was man's only path and assurance,
    Hope was the foundation of the world we knew.

    If Only...
    I knew more stories than those that were told,
    Joy was a plague, and peace a disease,
    Knowledge was worth more than silver and gold,
    Love was sacred and endless as the seas.

    If Only...
    Miracles were seen more than daylight,
    Never was replaced with forever,
    Our eyes could see through the dark of the night,
    Passion lived in us more than ever.

    If Only...
    Questions were answered, and answers were questioned,
    Roses were pure and without thorns,
    Sadness received only love and affection,
    The empty knew why it was they were born.

    If Only...
    Us as a nation would join hands in song,
    Victory was a gift to the humble,
    When tears were shed, the earth felt strong,
    Exalted men would fall and crumble.

    If Only...
    You and I would last forever.

    If Only...

    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was inspired to write this poem in 1863 during the Civil War when his son went off to fight for the Union against his wishes. While this song is about Christmas time, there is an underlying tone of the war (The Wrong shall fail, The Right prevail). This poem is the basis for the Christmas carol "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day."

    Christmas Bells

    in Famous Holiday Poems

    I heard the bells on Christmas Day
    Their old, familiar carols play,
    And wild and sweet
    The words repeat
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    And thought how, as the day had come,
    The belfries of all Christendom
    Had rolled along
    The unbroken song
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    Till ringing, singing on its way,
    The world revolved from night to day,
    A voice, a chime,
    A chant sublime
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    Then from each black, accursed mouth
    The cannon thundered in the South,
    And with the sound
    The carols drowned
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    It was as if an earthquake rent
    The hearth-stones of a continent,
    And made forlorn
    The households born
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    And in despair I bowed my head;
    "There is no peace on earth," I said;
    For hate is strong,
    And mocks the song
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

    Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
    "God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
    The Wrong shall fail,
    The Right prevail,
    With peace on earth, good-will to men."

    About him never knowing

    He Is There

    • By Yasemin Raymondo

    Poem About Where God Is Found

    in God Poems

    God comes to us in quiet and simple ways.
    He is there when the breeze rustles the palm fronds on a quiet, lazy, sunny afternoon.
    When the raindrops softly patter on the thirsty tin roofs of the poor, he is there.

    Look for him behind the laughing eyes of a child,
    or smell him in blossoming jasmine flowers
    on a clear and starry moonlit night.
    Hold his hand when you take your love by the hand,
    and feel the warmth of his tears
    as you console a grieving friend in your arms.

    He is there in a baby's first cry
    and in the dying man's last sigh.
    When the waves break on the golden sands
    and the seagulls fly into the white clouds,
    when the church bells ring on an Easter Sunday
    inviting you to receive the sacred brad, he is there.

    Taste him when you bite into the yellow ripeness of a mango
    or when you quench your thirst with sweet water of a coconut.
    God comes to us only in quiet and simple ways.
    Never his presence in violence will you find;
    never look for him in words of anger or cowardly actions.

    His love and his peace surround us, above and beyond.
    And only in those simple, everyday things
    when we look with our eyes filled with his love
    can we find him.

    A True Friend

    in True Friend Poems

    Before you became a friend of mine,
    We knew each other for quite some time.
    I hate to say we wasted a year and a half.
    I'm glad we can now look back and laugh.

    It's funny how things turned out.
    I wish I could say I never had a doubt.
    Truth is, I'm proud to say
    You and I have come a long, long way.

    You touch the lives of people you know.
    You walk around with a humble glow.
    You've been a best friend to me,
    One that will last an eternity.

    I know my secrets you will keep.
    On your shoulder I can weep.
    You always listen and never judge me,
    Always understand so objectively.

    You light up a room when you walk in.
    I'm so fortunate that my friend you've been.
    You are the epitome of a best friend, a true ten.
    I wish I had known that way back then.

    Words can't convey what you mean.
    A better friend I have yet seen.
    You confide in me, and I in you.
    You are a friend who's completely true.

    I never thought we'd be friends like this.
    A lifetime of this we almost missed.
    I'm blessed things have turned out this way.
    I thank God for you every day.

    I'm thankful it was not too late.
    My friendship with you was well worth the wait.
    I love you for all that you are.
    There's no better friend by far.

    Storms have fascinated me since I was a child. Although I now understand them a bit better, I can understand how people through history have associated storms to particular mythological gods, and mysterious occurrences of nature with folklore and other stories. I just wanted to set the feeling of a summer storm and give a little credit back to the mythological gods who were so infamous in creating these storms during ancient times. I hope my poem is enjoyed by storm lovers everywhere!

    Mighty Tempest

    Poem About Storms

    in Beauty of Nature Poems

    Sultry sun on fields and bay,
    quiet calm engulfs the day.

    Faint troubled rumblings in the sky
    foretells a mighty storm is nigh.

    Feathered fowl that glide the breeze
    quickly fly to nest in trees.

    A silent sense of darkness fell,
    as clouds began to twirl and swell.

    A yellow haze of green and gray
    replaces sun and heat of day.

    Thunderous cannons roar the sky
    with veins of light that pierce the eye.

    The day has darkened into night
    as Thor and Zeus pursue their might!

    Raging winds that bend and sway,
    tearing limbs along the way.

    Bursting clouds of icy hail;
    Nature's sting is quite surreal!

    The faded rumblings start to slow,
    and sultry sun peaks out to glow,

    Mighty Tempest, come and gone.
    Ancient storm gods carry on,
    leaving rainbows in the dawn!

    Until Forever Dies

    in Love Forever Poems

    This is us,
    Never alone.
    We have each other.
    Whether in the same room
    Or by phone,
    You will always be there.
    I know you'll never leave,
    And there's one thing I know.
    This is the truth.
    We will be together
    Until forever dies.

    Because I'm yours,
    And you're mine.
    Listening to your heart,
    A rhythm so fine.
    So much comfort,
    So much love.
    With only you I feel this,
    Not any other boy
    Can I love so much.
    We will be together
    Until forever dies.

    Because we're in love,
    As everyone can see.
    Never a broken heart,
    Never a tear cried.
    You can hold me in your arms,
    And I'll hold you in mine.
    We will never let go,
    Until the end of time,
    'Cause I will never leave you,
    And you won't leave me.
    We will be together
    Until forever dies.

    Life Without You

    • By Nikki Wilfong
    • Published: February 2008

    in Boyfriend Poems

    Me without you
    is like a leafless fall,
    a snowless winter,
    and a flowerless spring.

    Me without you
    is like a colorless rainbow,
    a sunless day,
    and a starless night.

    Me without you
    is like the ocean without a wave,
    the beach without sand,
    and a flameless fire.

    Me without you
    is like a book without words,
    a man without a face,
    and a child with no name.

    Friends are far, friends are near.
    Friends will be there to lend an ear.
    They listen, laugh, and care,
    But most of all, they're always there.

    Through thick and thin, up and down,
    Your true friends are always around.
    For treats, hugs, and real big smiles,
    They'll travel to you from several miles.

    They'll always be there to hold you tight.
    Anytime, no matter if it's day or night.
    You really know when your friends are sincere
    When they always show up to lend their ear.

    in Girlfriend Poems

    When I am without her,
    the sun doesn't shine as brightly.
    When I am without her,
    the clouds are dark and foreboding.
    When I am without her,
    the birds don't sing as sweetly.
    When I am without her,
    the walls close in on me.
    When I am without her,
    in the depths of my hell, whispering her name sustains me.
    But when I am with her,
    she lifts me up.
    When I am with her,
    I have the strength to move mountains.
    When I am with her,
    I can withstand anything.
    When I am with her,
    her smile warms my very soul.
    When I am with her,
    the angels sing her name.
    When I am with her,
    I fall in love all over again.

    Poem About Enjoying Spring

    in Spring Poems

    Upon a nice mid-spring day,
    Let's take a look at Nature's way.
    Breathe the scent of nice fresh air,
    Feel the breeze within your hair.

    The grass will poke between your toes,
    Smell the flowers with your nose.
    Clouds form shapes within the skies,
    And light will glisten from your eyes.

    Hear the buzzing of the bees,
    Climb the tallest willow trees.
    Look across the meadow way,
    And you shall see a young deer play.

    Pick the daisies as they grow,
    Watch a gentle cold stream flow.
    Know the sounds of water splash,
    Catch its glimmer in a flash.

    When altogether all seems sound,
    Lay yourself upon the ground.
    Take a moment to inhale,
    And listen to Nature tell her tale...

    This poem by William Blake (1757-1827 London) depicts the value of not holding bad feelings inside. In the poem, he suggests that sharing your bad feelings with the one you are angry about will cause the ill will to disappear. On the other hand, holding a grudge inside will only make it grow more powerful. The poem ends with a murder in a garden.

    A Poison Tree

    in Famous Friendship Poems

    I was angry with my friend:
    I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
    I was angry with my foe:
    I told it not, my wrath did grow.

    And I waterd it in fears
    Night & morning with my tears;
    And I sunned it with smiles,
    And with soft deceitful wiles.

    And it grew both day and night,
    Till it bore an apple bright.
    And my foe beheld it shine,
    And he knew that it was mine,

    And into my garden stole,
    When the night had veiled the pole;
    In the morning glad I see
    My foe outstretchd beneath the tree.

    Storm At Sea

    Poem About The Power Of Storms

    in Ocean Poems

    CRASHING waves... SMASHING seas...
    Bringing sailors to their knees.
    As they struggle to save their lives,
    Hoping and praying help arrives.

    The stormy seas as dark as coal,
    Preventing the sailors from reaching their goal.
    Battered and bruised, but still they fight...
    Staring ahead into the dead of night.
    Rocking and rolling as they try to stand...
    Hoping against hope that they soon reach land.

    Bleary eyed from lack of sleep.
    Down in their cabins, huddled like sheep.
    As they're rocking and rolling down beneath,
    Weary sailors above resist with gritted teeth.

    Hours later, as the storm starts to dissipate,
    It leaves a calm tranquil sea in it wake.
    The veteran sailors know the battle is over and they have won...
    As they contemplate other storms yet to come...

    The reason I wrote this poem was because I absolutely hate winter and love spring time. This is mostly because everything is dead in the winter- there's no life. And I'm a very sensitive person, so just the atmosphere of winter makes me sad. Another reason is because I had been through a bad experience- relationship wise- over the winter, and I feel that spring time is a clean new start. No more depressing poems and songs! :)

    Spring

    Poem About Change Of Seasons

    in Spring Poems

    When the cold, harsh winter has given its last breath,
    When the sky above shows life instead of death,
    When the claws reaching to the frozen sky become decorated with leaves,
    When the animals -long in hiding- scurry from trees,
    We know winter has ended.

    When the frost on grass is replaced with sweet dew,
    When the fields become dotted with flowers, reminding me of you,
    When the lonely silence becomes filled with melodies,
    When you feel warm air, erasing bad memories
    We know winter has ended.

    When the hard, bare ground becomes painted with green,
    When the frost-bitten air becomes fresh and clean,
    When the coats and boots are all stored away,
    When the playgrounds become occupied again with child's play,
    We know winter has ended.

    When you hear the pleasant sound of children's laughter,
    When the air is filled with joy- long sought after,
    When the world is filled with sunlight, brighter and longer,
    When the song of Mother Nature becomes stronger,
    Spring has begun.

    This poem is all about using similes. The poet compares her situation to various objects. Our experiences in life can be compared to objects. For example, if someone is bright and cheery, we might compare her to a ray of sunshine. If someone is mean, we might compare those words to the hiss of a snake.

    you light up my life
    Just like a rose
    that blooms it's beauty
    Just like the rain
    that never stops crying
    Just like another human being
    you let go of me
    Just like others
    you broke my heart
    Just like clouds
    you are soft
    Just like bullets
    that you shot into my heart

    I know how it feels to be lost at sea, to feel unloved, unwanted, and drowning in misery. There's no one to blame; it was my own anxiety and despair until I realised there was help out there. That help came from the Lord, my shepherd. I'm completely certain I heard Him speak to me, and suddenly everything fell into place.

    The Shepherd Slept

    Needing The Lord

    in Inspiring Poems for Kids

    There was a shepherd who fell fast asleep
    So there was no one to see to his sheep.
    The sheep were delighted, freedom at last
    Followed the leader and ran away fast.

    All was hunky dory; they had a ball,
    Walking for miles over fields, hills, moors.
    Then came the sunset and the night grew dim.
    They began to feel that freedom was grim.

    They grew hungry and went in search of food -
    Couldn't find forage and became subdued.
    It was hard to lie down and get their sleep,
    As they were pursued by some ghastly beasts.

    So tired and weary they wished to be
    Back in the flock and the hand of safety.
    They realised they needed their shepherd's care,
    For love, food and shelter that's always there.

    When the sheep had almost lost every hope,
    A familiar face came over the slopes.
    It was their shepherd and all ran with glee
    To show they were glad to see him, truly.

    They vowed they'd never run away again
    And prayed in thanks for the shepherd God sent.

    Amen!
