Family Friend Poems would not exist without our wonderful poets. We’ve had the honor of publishing poems from thousands of poets, and we are thankful for each of them for sharing their hearts with our poetry community. We are incredibly grateful for the poets who have been faithful contributors over the years. They consistently submit high-quality poems that we publish, and they engage with our community by leaving comments on other poets’ work.

We are excited to say “thank you” by showcasing favorite poems by our top poets. These poems have been hand-selected by the poets themselves. We had the opportunity to interview each poet to learn more about why a particular poem means so much to them. We also found out where they get their writing inspiration, why they love poetry, and their favorite experience from being published on Family Friend Poems. The interviews can be found on each poem page in this collection. 

Thanks again to everyone who makes Family Friend Poems a community that shares the highs and lows of life. Let’s take a moment to celebrate some of the poets who vulnerably share their hearts with the world.

Poems About Remembering September 11th

September 11th Poems

September 11th Poems

On September 11, 2001, the unthinkable happened as terrorists attacked the United States. Nearly 3,000 people died as a result. Terrorists flew two planes into the World Trade Center in New York City and one into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. A fourth plane did not reach its intended destination. The courageous passengers aboard United Airlines Flight 93 fought to regain control of the aircraft, and it crashed in Western Pennsylvania. 

May we remember all the people who lost their lives that fateful Tuesday morning and those who've had to live with the lingering effects. May we also remember how we came together as a country to support one another. We thank all the brave men and women who were first responders that day and the military personnel who fought to keep us safe. We will not forget!

Poems Raising Awareness About Suicide
  • Published: August 30, 2021

Suicide Prevention Month

Suicide Prevention Month

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. It's a month dedicated to raising awareness about suicide and sharing hope for those affected by it. It's a month to help destigmatize this widespread and heartbreaking topic.

Often, people don't want their lives to end; they just wish the pain they're experiencing in life would end. Life can become overwhelming for people of all ages. Unfortunately, according to the National Alliance on Mental Health, suicide is the second leading cause of death of people ages 10-34. 

Suicide has a far-reaching effect. When someone chooses to end his or her life, the people connected to that person are left to grieve. Many times, they also live with guilt and have questions that will never be answered. 

We hope that by shedding light on this topic through poetry, people can see that they're not alone. May we come together and help those who are hurting -- both the people experiencing suicidal thoughts and those who have lost loved ones to suicide. 

Many people have felt hopeless at some point. You are not alone. This is not a battle you have to fight by yourself. Let’s encourage one another.

If you are hurting, please reach out to someone. If you feel like you are drowning with everything happening around you and you wonder how you will go on, there are people who want to help. If you have been thinking about ending your life, we urge you to reach out. In the United States, you can contact the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. There is hope!

Poems About Pregnancy And Infant Loss
  • Published: October 15, 2020

Pregnancy And Infant Loss Awareness Month

Pregnancy And Infant Loss Awareness Month

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. This awareness month was first declared on October 15, 1988, by President Ronald Reagan. It's a month to remember the babies we never got to hold in our arms or the babies that left this earth too soon. The pain can be unbearable for parents who experience this void in their lives.

Loss due to miscarriages, stillbirths, SIDS, and other infant deaths are not always talked about. Many people who suffer miscarriages don't share the news openly, causing them to wrestle with the pain without others knowing. Share your story. The darkness you walked through can shine a light for someone else going through the same thing.

We hope that you will see that you are not alone by reading these poems on pregnancy and infant loss. We encourage you to do something to keep the memory of your baby alive. Even if you never held your baby in your arms, their short life had meaning, and they will always be a part of your family.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic violence is more prevalent than many realize. People on the outside might not always see it, but far too many people live a nightmare with an abusive spouse or significant other. People are living in fear of the person who is supposed to love them. They are living through situations that bring harm to them physically, mentally, emotionally, and sexually.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and it’s a chance to educate the public about this terrible reality. If you are in an abusive relationship, there is hope for you. You are strong, and you are worth so much more than your current situation. There are people who long to help you. We encourage you to reach out to someone you trust or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233). Someone is waiting to talk to you and help you take the next step to break free from an abusive relationship. We hope that by reading the stories of these poets, you see that you are not alone.

Childhood Memories

Childhood Memories

Growing up is inevitable. No matter how much we want to hold onto our childhood, life is going to move forward. At some point, our childhood becomes something we look back on instead of something we’re currently experiencing. Each generation’s childhood is marked with different characteristics. No matter how old you are, it seems that every generation believes life was slower and sometimes better than daily life today. This is a collection of poems about those simpler times. The poems are filled with sentimental longing for the days gone by. What fond memories do you have from your childhood? For a moment, take a stroll down memory lane and reminisce about the good old days. They might be just a memory now, but what a beautiful memory they are. They are a reminder of glorious days, the days that made you who you are today.

Poems About Having An Eating Disorder

Eating Disorders Poems

Eating Disorders Poems

We are all bombarded with messages about how we should look and how much we should weigh. Many people struggle with eating disorder tendencies. For some people, they binge and purge. Others significantly restrict their consumption of food and over-exercise. It’s all in pursuit of the “perfect” body. What can begin as a desire to be healthier can quickly turn into a paralyzing obsession. It feels as though the number on the scale is never good enough. The figure seen in the mirror is severely distorted in the mind of someone with an eating disorder. As with any other mental illness, it’s important to seek help from professionals who are trained to bring healing and restoration.

Every year, National Eating Disorders Awareness Week is held during the last week in February. It's a time to raise awareness about these disorders and offer resources and support to those who are facing these struggles. If you would like to know more about eating disorders, use a screening tool for yourself or a loved one, or find out how to get the necessary help, check out National Eating Disorders Association.
