Poem About Searching For Yourself
Her eyes glowed with such ambition,
And her mouth spoke words of love and kindness.
She took pride in wandering;
She walked to find the places her heart longed for.
Oh, the places she searched to find her home.
She made her way through crowded paths
And swam through salted waters.
She danced in gardens
And sweetly kissed strangers.
She ran, she searched, but still couldn't seem to find.
She failed to realize the lives she touched,
And the hearts she changed.
She failed to realize the home her heart longed for
Would never be found.
That the light she was chasing was not the world's.
That light, her home,
Had been following her footprints.
She had not realized
She had held it all along.
22. For ManchesterPoem About Uniting Together Against Terrorism
We can't but feel utter shock,
and we're emotionally drained.
Yet deep within our sadness,
some unity is gained.
Wherever we may come from,
and no matter our belief,
we stand tall as a nation.
We are united in our grief.
They were parents with young children.
They were adults and just a teen.
They were an uncle, aunt, and cousin,
and all the family in between.
So in regards to reason,
we can search and take a look...
No religion condones murder.
It's not in any holy book!
Our loved ones may have fallen
due to the extremity of sin.
But our strength will not be broken,
and TERROR will never win!
23. Live In The NowEncouragement To Live In The Moment
Look not back on yesterday
or what you have left behind.
For only today is yours to claim,
and this moment only is your time.
Fret not on what has been
or on what has passed you by.
Yesterday is far behind you.
You can't change it if you try.
New opportunities await you.
They come with each new day,
so look ahead with faith and hope,
and blessings will come your way.
Keep faith alive in your heart.
Live full and live well each day.
Do all the good for all you can
to all those who pass your way.
Yesterday is out of your reach
and tomorrow is not yours to claim.
Only this moment belongs to you.
So use it wisely, in Jesus' name.Latest Shared Story

24. Live LifeUplifting Poem Filled With Advice
Life is crazy
And totally unpredictable...
It's going to push you over,
Kick you while you're down,
And hit you when you try to get back up.
Not everything can beat you.
Things are going to change you,
But you get to choose which ones you let change you.
Listen to your heart,
Follow your dreams,
And let no one tell you what you're capable of.
Push the limits,
Bend the rules,
And enjoy every minute of it.
Laugh at everything.
Live for as long as you can.
But trust none.
Believe in yourself,
And never lose faith in others.
Settle for nothing but only the best,
And give 110% in everything you do.
Live on the edge,
Yet stay safe,
And cherish every moment of it.
Life is a gift.
Appreciate all the rewards,
And jump on every opportunity.
Not everyone's going to love you,
But who needs them anyway?
And fight for what you believe.
Back down to nothing,
But give in to the little things in life,
After all, that is what makes you.
Forget the unnecessary,
But remember everything.
Bring it with you everywhere you go.
Learn something new,
And appreciate criticism.
But dislike what you want.
Never forget where you came from,
And always remember where you are going.
Live life to its fullest,
And have a reason for everything,
Even if it's totally insane.
Find your purpose in life,
And live it!Latest Shared Story

25. Dear AddictionInspiring Change For Addicts
I'm writing this to you,
Telling you we're through.
I can't take you anymore,
Don't know what I liked you for.
All you did was wear me out.
Now I know what you're all about.
You came to me with promise and joy,
Now look at all the things you destroy.
Families, lives, bank accounts, you see.
You ruined it all with one little tease.
Look at the way you make me feel
Then you take it all and want me to steal.
Why can't you just go and hide
Somewhere far away where I'll never find?
Everyone at home doesn't understand
How you rip me apart then lend me a hand.
I keep coming back thinking inside
Maybe this time I'll make you my bride.
Then I sit and wonder why,
Why do you really want me to die?
Thousands and thousands come to you
Hoping and praying you'll help them through.
Then they fall for your lending hand,
Only to realize you're nothing but a scam.
You promised me heaven and sent me to hell.
You ruined my life and then wished me well.
Watch me now as I go on my way.
I'm washing myself of all your pain.
So you and your power can just leave me be.
I'm taking my life and setting it free.Latest Shared Story

Poem Of Overcoming
I am not a victim of breast cancer. I am experiencing breast cancer.
I am not dying. I am living.
I am not curing. I am healing and restoring.
I am not fearing. I am loving and trusting.
I am not fighting. I am ceasing all hostility and conflict.
I am not weak or diminished. I am strong and whole and complete.
I am not coping or hoping. I am giving and receiving, creating and conceiving.
I am not crying. I am laughing until the tears run down my leg.
My body is not my enemy. My body is my loving friend, my gentle guide.
My life story is not history. My life story is legendary.
I am not powerless. I am powerful beyond measure.
I am not a drop in the ocean. I am the ocean in a drop.
I am not scattered. I am aligned.
I am not being destroyed. I am building my sacred stature.
I am not trapped or caged. I am as free as a feathery fledgling.
My body is not a muddy puddle of despair. My body is a hallowed temple of spirit.
I am not filled with shadows. I am filled with illuminating light.
I am not a passive puppet. I am an active advocate and enthusiastic participant.
I am not tired and bested. I am tied and invested.
I am not without a voice or meaning or purpose. I am an angelic messenger.
I am not discarded. I am needed.
I am not descending, dragging or faltering. I am consistently inspiring and uplifting.
I am not dwelling in the reflections of the past or the projections of the future. I am joyfully dancing naked in the unfolding mystery of the present moment.
I am not alone or abandoned. I am infinitely connected by the soft, silky vibrational threads of love.
I will not forget. I will remember.
I will not burn out. I will sparkle forever.Latest Shared Story

27. Time Goes ByLiving With Strength And Love
Time goes by and slips away
Just as the sky turns from blue to grey.
We are here but only for a short stay.
Don't let life pass with words you never say.
Don't live in anger, with fear and regrets.
Seek forgiveness and lay your pain to rest.
Don't judge too quickly, as you may be wrong.
Instead, choose to live life as an uplifting song.
When tears fall, wipe them away
As they will only last but for a day.
Sometimes we hurt because we care.
Sometimes life seems unfair.
We make mistakes we wish we could change
And wonder how our life could be rearranged.
Second chances last only for so long, reach out to others
As we are all sisters and brothers.
There are angels in heaven that watch us every day.
They look over us as we laugh and play.
Live with joy, and when you lie down at night,
Thank the Lord and release any strife.Latest Shared Story

29. SuccessWhat It Takes To Succeed
The road to success is not straight.
There is a curve called Failure,
A loop called Confusion,
Speed bumps called Friends,
Red lights called Enemies, and
Caution lights called Family.
But if you have a spare called Determination,
An engine called Perseverance,
Insurance called Faith, and
A driver called Jesus,
You will make it to a place called Success!!Latest Shared Story

30. Start FreshForgetting The Past And Starting Over
I wanna start fresh...
and forget this place, the wicked world I live in,
but not forget how glorious and essential it was to me.
Forget the memories that make me weak and sad,
but not forget the memories that are an anchor to my strength.
Forget the people who caused me pain,
but not forget those who were with me in heavy rain.
Forget my past, mistakes, and regrets,
but not forget the lessons I learned from them.
Forget the days when I cried silently, not aloud,
but not forget the same days that make me strong.
Forget the old me, find myself and explore,
and emerge and shine as never before.
This is why
I wanna start fresh.Latest Shared Story

Make The Most Of Time With Loved Ones
Treat me with love, dignity, respect and compassion
Now as I am healthy, vibrant and alive.
Don't wait to hear that I am sick and dying
To love me the way I was meant to be loved.
Bring me flowers and candy on any day just because.
Don't wait for a holiday, love and cherish me every day.
Tell me I am beautiful.
See my beauty in my body and soul.
Don't wait to see that I am disfigured
And then tell me that I am beautiful
Because you think that is what I want to hear.
Talk to me lovingly now so I can hear your beautiful voice
And listen to the ringing of your laughter.
Don't try to talk to me that way now
That I am deaf and can no longer hear your sweet voice.
Speak words of love and compassion
So I can remember those conversations
Even though I may not be able to hear them again.
Come one day and you will be sad, you will be sorry!
Treat me like a human being with a life
That needs to be lived my way...not yours!
Remember that our Creator gave you your own life
To live the way you please.
Leave me to live mine!!
I do not tell you what you should or should not do...
I just listen and give you support.
Why can't you do the same?
I am this way and you are that way.
That's because we are different...
We are unique...can't we compromise?
Bury the hatchet and move along.
Free your body, free your soul.
Let's just take the precious time
We have now to live and to love...
Everything else will slowly fall into place.
Now I am sick and dying.
You are now trying to love me, to bring me flowers,
To stroke my hair and to speak loving words.
Why did we waste all those years, all that time...
Just to be where we are now,
Now when I am too weak, too sick to enjoy your gifts?
Love me now...
As your sister, your brother,
Your husband, your wife,
Your niece, your nephew,
Your daughter, your son...
Don't wait until it is too late!
Don't wait until I am gone...Latest Shared Story

32. Pain EndsEncouraging Poem To Let Go Of What Hurts You
Breathe in the fresh air,
Put your mind at ease.
Let down your hair,
Let it flow in the breeze.
Let your eyes wander
To all the beauty to be seen.
If those toxic thoughts you still do ponder,
Then let out a scream.
Scream until the pain is gone,
Until you no longer feel afraid.
Open your eyes to a new dawn,
Let the darkness fade.
No longer compare yourself
Or your flaws to others' perfections.
Take the negativity off the shelf.
Focus on your direction.
Pick the sadness up off the floor,
Sweep it into the wind.
Close the door on self-hatred.
Never let it back in.
For the lies it would often tell you,
You will no longer agree.
Happiness and love are what you should hold onto.
They are whom you should give the key.
Pay no attention to the toxic thoughts,
Listen to those who adore everything you are.
Overthinking was what you once were taught,
But now those thoughts you put in a jar.
Focus on your goals,
Never lose your fight.
It's time to open new scrolls.
Everything will be all right.Latest Shared Story

Words To Live By
I can't wait to hold you in my arms
And kiss your tiny nose.
Cherish every moment,
Knowing just how fast you'll grow.
In the blink of an eye, time will pass by
And you'll be a little girl
Trying to find your place
Without a map in this big world.
Every road is unfamiliar,
Every experience brand new.
So many paths that lie before you,
Not knowing which to choose.
I don't have all the answers,
But there are tips that I can give.
If you want a life with no regrets,
I'll tell you how to live.
Wake up grateful every day,
And know that you are loved.
Be certain that you matter
And will always be enough.
Stay a kid for as long as you can;
Don't try to grow up too fast.
It's such a short stint in the span of your life,
So enjoy it while it lasts.
Always be sincere and honest;
Consistently stick to your word.
Stand up for what is fair and right.
Use your voice and make sure you are heard.
Believe in yourself and what you can do.
Be assertive and show that you're strong.
When you make a mistake, as we all do,
Be the first to admit that you're wrong.
Attitude is everything,
So make yours positive.
When the hard times fall upon you,
It's the best way you can live.
So don't worry about the small things,
Or cry when milk gets spilled.
The hard times aren't as hard
When your glass is halfway filled.
Be aware of your own beauty,
Without being vain.
Your looks will one day fade;
It's what inside you that remains.
Dare to be different, your own unique style.
Live only the story you wrote,
Be true to yourself and don't let your likes
Be based on the popular vote.
Forgive and forget,
Without keeping track.
When you hold on to the past,
The past holds you back.
Be brave, try new things;
It's ok if you fall.
The only way you fail
Is to not try at all.
Aspire to greatness,
Find a passion to pursue.
If you're willing to work,
There's nothing you can't do.
Ignore all the people
Who tell you you can't.
And if you have any questions, just ask.
Love, your Aunt
Conquering Negativity In Life
I live with depravity,
Pressure like gravity.
Why can't they just see
I want to live happily?
Surrounded by poverty,
The cravings of obesity,
Those dreams of reality.
Why can't they just see
I want to be all I can be?
I try to live with simplicity,
But I get hit with hostility.
People keep telling me
You won't live happily.
Forget all this negativity.
I'm going against normality,
Living a life of morality
In a world full of brutality.
Spitting out blasphemy,
Why not be in harmony?
Treat strangers like family.
Going to love unconditionally,
I know my personality.
Don't need this scrutiny.
I know who I will be,
Just watch and see.
35. Your WoundsYou Are Stronger Than Your Scars
Time doesn’t heal wounds
to make you forget.
It doesn’t heal wounds to
erase the memories.
Time leaves you with a scar
to remind you of how you fought through it.
Time leaves you with a scar
to remind you of how you bled
and how you survived.

Keeping Your Identity
Pick up your broken pieces.
Don't leave them on the ground.
They're screaming, crying, wailing.
What a sad and terrible sound.
Darling, leave behind your worries,
And leave behind you pain.
But darling, whatever you do,
Don't leave behind your name.
Your heart is an inferno,
One that water cannot quench.
Get up and dust yourself off,
And get out of this muddy trench.
Darling, leave behind your worries,
And leave behind your pain.
Leave behind the places you've been,
But remember to bring your name.
Your spirit cannot be broken,
No matter how hard they try.
The warrior inside has spoken,
And it's a rolling battle cry.
Forget about your worries,
And forget about your pain.
But darling, remember to never,
Never forget your name.
They'll never force you into chains,
For you are destined to be free.
Don't feel the need to fit the mold.
Be who you were born to be.
Let go of all your worries,
Let go of all your pain,
Let go of all that trouble,
But don't let go of your name.
Inside you are a lion,
Fierce, untamed, and proud.
On eagle's wings you're flying
To touch the stars above the clouds.
Forever leave your worries,
And forever leave your pain.
Go walk among the galaxies,
And forever keep your name.
38. Slow Down
slow down when your world
is spinning too fast
when day and night are stuck in dusk
make sure to enjoy life
soak in the sunshine
admire the moonlight
witness how the clouds gather
how the wind chases the leaves
across the street
treasure the little moments
that world will still spin
but you won’t fall off for taking
a well-deserved break
39. Keep GoingIt's Never Too Late
Strong people can
feel weak and
brave people can
feel afraid and
light people can
Lost people can
be found and
hopeless people can
find faith and
helpless people can
It is never too late
to turn things around
