  1. 21. A Voice Behind

    Hope you like this poem. Never rest without success

    When into sorrow, my poor soul sinks
    When a sound of despair in my heart rings
    I'm strongly pushed to do my best
    By a voice that says, "There is still hope you dare not rest."

  3. 23. Time Goes By

    I wrote this poem as I considered how often it is that we go through life assuming and judging others, while we do not fully understand their actions. At the time I wrote this poem there was a lot of distress in my family, and I realized that so often we become disconnected, angry, and hurt that it impacts our relationships. The poem speaks of forgiveness and understanding that we only have individuals in our lives for a certain amount of time and that it is better to heal rather than to blame.

    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.

  4. 24. Live In The Now

    This is a lesson I learned about not living in the past nor being kept in bondage to regrets about yesterday's mistakes.

    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.

  5. 25. I Am Every Woman

    • By Rakhi Nariani
    • Published: May 2017

    I am a single parent who has brought up her daughter, giving her the love of both a father and a mother. I believe a woman has immense strength and power from within. This poem has come from the deepest core of my heart, which speaks for the hearts of all women worldwide. It is a poem that brings to light a woman's power.

    A woman is beauty innate,
    A symbol of power and strength.
    She puts her life at stake.
    She's real, she's not fake!

  6. 26. If You Believe

    This was inspired by an experience I had in school years ago. A long story, but I emerged with an uplifting lesson I often share with students: Faith in God with diligence - against all odds - works wonders.

    When your mind is set
    On a splendid thing you want to do,
    There are some who will shrug,
    Like you don't have a clue.

  7. 27. Trials

    • By Alexis M. Vogler
    • Published: July 2016

    I chose to write this because I am going through a hard time. Maybe it will help someone else.

    Sometimes you may think you're alone,
    And your feelings make you seem like a clone.
    Deep down you are whole,
    Not an empty bowl.

  9. 29. Never Stop Being You

    This poem I wrote was an inspirational look at life in general and the reason we live as we do because some of us never stop.

    Analysis of Form and Technique

    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.

  11. 31. I Will Prevail

    My name is Phil Harris. I am 24 years of age and I reside in Georgia. This poem is one of the best out of a book I am writing called "Inspirations in Life." I have been inspired many ways in life to never allow anyone to cause me to remember that I have a dream that I can achieve. I hope to have the whole book completed within the next month.

    I have been told that I will never exceed.
    I have been told that I am living in a dream.
    I have been pushed to the side by many of my peers.
    I have heard of the struggles that were present before me.

  13. 33. What Matters Most

    I wrote this poem while I was in jail. I missed a lot of things while I was gone, and the one thing that I missed that really gets to me is my daughter's graduation. I've done a lot of soul searching and looking for answers, and what I've come up with is that there is nothing more precious than time. You can't turn it back and you can't start over. I have a lot of guilt, but life is a learning experience, right? So I'm going to turn this into a positive thing.

    Embrace who you are,
    And love like a fool.
    Try not to judge,
    And never be cruel.

  14. 34. Don't Quit

    Are you depressed or down in the dumps? Do you want to give up on your goals and just quit? If this applies to you, this is exactly what you have been looking for to motivate you to come back even harder and achieve your dreams.

    When times are hard, you might stop for a bit,
    But it's not over until the moment you quit.
    On a river's bridge, failures are the planks;
    Take one step at a time until you reach its banks.

  15. 35. Homage To My Hips

    Lucille Clifton was an American poet who lived from 1936-2010. Her poetry celebrates her African American heritage and usually includes feminist themes, which can be seen in this poem. In "Homage to My Hips," she shows she is proud of who she is. She won’t conform to expectations or be held back. That can even be seen in how she chooses not to capitalize the first letter of a new line.

    these hips are big hips
    they need space to
    move around in.
    they don't fit into little

  20. 40. Circle Of Life

    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 there. 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.

    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.
