  1. 41. Don't Neglect Your Love

    Sometimes we take love for granted, whether that be your partner or your family. This poem is to remind us to take care of the ones we love.

    Love is like a bicycle
    Left out in the storm
    If it's not protected
    Rust begins to form

  2. 42. Advice To A Son

    Ernest Hemingway was an American author and poet who lived from 1899-1961. He loved adventure and used his various experiences to inspire his writing. This poem was his chance to impart wisdom on his sons. He was married four times and had three sons.

    Never trust a white man,
    Never kill a Jew,
    Never sign a contract,
    Never rent a pew.

  3. 43. Moving Toward Temporary

    • By Sadwick
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 31, 2021

    Moving forward is hard. I've lost a meaningful relationship, careers, and even hope. Yet although the struggle of life can try to push me down, I think it's important to remember life is like the seasons. Although there may be a rough winter, spring is always right behind it. Life moves on. You keep moving forward.

    Sometimes your best isn't enough
    And happiness comes after sorrow
    Life isn't always going to be rough
    Yet, I can't speak for tomorrow

  4. 44. Life Lines

    The best use of a list poem may be to pass along a lifetime of lessons, learned from experience and through the examples of others who have inspired me. Enjoy these and perhaps use them to make your own.

    Walk where you have never been
    and wonder at the beauty of this world.

    Wish for the best, but work,

  6. 46. You Don't Have To Be A Doormat

    I wrote this about myself when I realized that since I've grown older, I'm less uncomfortable defending myself.

    When I was young and insecure,
    And desperate to be liked.
    I tended to withdraw in pain
    And flee instead of fight.

  7. 47. We Are All Human

    This poem talks about how similar we are. In the end, we are all only human and doing the best we can.

    I've lived quite a while and learned quite a bit
    About life and this world where we live.
    I've found that it's filled with both good and the bad.
    Some who take, while some others will give.

  8. 48. Time Keeps Marching On

    The poem is about how time passes and what's really important is how we've used that time.

    Time passes all so quickly,
    Moments melting into years.
    It's true, time waits for no one,
    And the end is always near.

  9. 49. Pebbles

    • By Derek T
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2015

    Too often in life, people don't appreciate the things they have - the simple things that money cannot buy. They get too caught up looking to tomorrow, the future, that they don't stop to appreciate today, the memories they are currently making. I wrote this to open the eyes of those who go through this life too fast. Those who only concern themselves with material possessions and forget the value of a simple smile....cheers.

    Time has grown frantic
    Moves by us so swiftly
    Too often overwhelmed
    Losing sight of life's gift

    A sad truth that takes many of us far too long to realize. Just because we want something or even think we deserve it, doesn't mean we will get it or even need it.

  12. 52. Tightrope

    A person's strong suit sometimes can morph into a flaw. It's often better to be careful to avoid extremes.

    It's sometimes hard to see
    How close a virtue and vice can be,
    Yet the borderline of the two
    Should we respect in all we do.

  13. 53. The Wisdom Of Children

    I truly believe if we all let the child within us come out, the world would be a better place.

    Wonder what it's like to be scared every day,
    Knowing war and destruction are on the way?
    Not able to run and play in the park,
    Never camp out in the yard after dark.

  14. 54. The Time Of My Life

    At 97, I can look back on many things, regret the things I never finished and determine what I still can do, which is walk, talk, eat and sleep, plus creating crossword puzzles..That I can still see to do and takes no physical effort. I feel it keeps that one brain cell alive, and, having formed a partnership with Jonah Phillips (The Crossword Hobbyist) know that my puzzles will be a pastime for many older people in years to come.

    I realize I've reached the time
    When it's very plain to see
    That I now must be selective
    In what my preferences will be.

  15. 55. The Curse Of Social Media

    I wrote this to express how Social Media can be a destructive force in someone's life

    I'll post all those pictures of me having fun,
    Wearing my happiest grin.
    Add a few comments to enhance the effect,
    And impress all my great Facebook friends.

  16. 56. The Best Day Of My Life

    How do you decide if your day was good? When good things happened to you, is it? But what will happen and what will not is not in our control. So, does that mean the good days are not in our hands. I feel that we have formed an incorrect perspective of what is meant a good day. It is my life, my day, my actions, then why should it be dependent on the materialistic or short-lived things. Here is what I think a best day is and how we should live to make each day the best.

    The best day of my life,
    When will it be?
    When I score top grades,
    Or get a meal free?

  17. 57. The Jealous Heart

    I've known jealous people and have found that they're sometimes their own worst enemy. In jealousy's extreme state, a person can become unreasonable, obsessive, possessive, suspicious and even abusive. What a jealous person fails to realize is that their relentless behavior is denying them the very person and feelings of love they desire.

    Jealousy is such an ugly beast,
    Consuming in a ruthless feast,
    Every thought of rational notions
    Or capacity for gentler emotions,

  18. 58. Lessons From Dad

    This was a Christmas gift to my children. So much of what I learned from my Dad seemed to soak in by osmosis, simply by a lifetime of observing a quiet, thoughtful and reverent man. He is in his 90s now and keeps a framed copy of this poem in his office.

    Love someone as best you can,
    but love.

    And have a dog,

  19. 59. Lessons

    • By Jeremiah E. Fanjul
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2017

    I'm 22 years old. I recently lost my job, my girlfriend, and lately my will to keep going. I write to reflect and just give myself hope. My poem isn't long, but it has meaning.

    There's beauty in struggle,
    There's feeling in pain.
    For every painstaking mistake,
    There are lessons you can name.

  20. 60. Delight In

    Each second is another chance to do the extraordinary, to take up a new challenge, to live an amazing experience, to make your life special. Life is precious but short. Whatever you do, wherever you go, in the end what finally matters is nothing but how happy you felt and if you enjoyed the journey. The clock is ticking every second. It stops for none. If time has no brake, why should our happiness have one?

    If you're tired of doing nothing
    Rubbing your eyes until they're red
    Getting bored and feeling blank
    With no thoughts in your head
