  1. 61. What Makes You Better Than Me?

    I wrote this because my beautiful daughter who is nine was getting teased at school from other students. As she told me this one day, she showed me how smart she really was and did not allow these ignorant children to affect her at all. She was bright enough to feel sorry for them instead of herself. Thank you, Emily, my inspiration!

    Who are you to think of me the way you do?
    Who gave you the right to rant about me?
    Tell me who deemed you the man or the judge?
    Why do you hold in so much jealousy?

    I was touched. No, I was delighted. The poem hit home immediately. I was ridiculed as a child and it made me believe what others said. But over those harsh years, I have learned that life is...

  2. 62. Life Isn't Black And White

    You can be unhappy and still be in love.
    You can be in love and still walk away.
    You can walk away and still feel the weight of loss.
    You can feel the weight of loss and still stand tall.

  3. 63. Cool It Down

    Our egos can get the best of us sometimes as human beings. But humility is wisdom, and I constantly ask God for this grace. We all should.

    You're not so important
    That you can't be replaced.
    If you leave today,
    Someone will fill your space;

    • By Kimberly Johnson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2012

    Kimberly Johnson, RN, BSN. I have been a nurse my entire life. My patients have taught me how to live.

    With tears in his eyes,
    he reached for my hand.

  5. 65. Forgiveness

    • By Mary Masillo
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2008

    This poem was written for all the contempt I had for my birth mother never coming forward after finding her and writing to her for 16 years. I realized I did not need her acceptance. I had a wonderful mother and father (Foster) who raised me and my brother as their very own.

    I know forgiveness is good for my soul and my health.
    A smile on my face is definitely my personal wealth.
    I've lived too long holding a grudge
    And found out if I wanted it to end I had to budge,

  6. 66. Holocaust

    • By Skylar
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009

    During the Holocaust, many lives were lost. Women, Men, Boys, and Girls. Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, sons daughters. Not just Jewish people too. They took them all. We must never forget these 6 million people and who killed them.

    6 million people, 12 million hands
    Strapped together like rubber bands.
    6 million people, 12 million eyes,
    Mother and children with last goodbyes.

  7. 67. A Healthy Mind

    Every day, we brush our teeth to keep them clean, and we take a bath to clean our body. We eat nutritious food to keep ourselves healthy and active. Our elders teach us good manners, etiquette, discipline, and whatnot. But we often forget about our mind. Why? Isn't it an equally important part of us? If we cleanse our bodies, why not our minds? What about the thoughts? Why not keep our minds healthy? Won't the rise of positivity in our minds lead to a rise of tranquility in our lives?

    Can a lush green forest grow
    On a barren piece of land?
    Or a building be constructed
    On a giant heap of sand?

  12. 72. To Ashes

    • By Robert Durdle
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2015

    This is a poem I wrote at a very young age when I was "green" and full of imagination.

    Life is like a fire.
    If you can't control your flame,
    You're bound to be burned.

    Boxing with an ego...it takes a lot out of you!

  14. 74. Little Girl

    • By Shannon
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009

    To all the people who think these through life rather than just living. That spend all their time wondering what they are doing wrong instead of just letting things happen.

    Little girl don't be afraid,
    Afraid that you think this way,
    Afraid that you know all these things,
    These things that make the mystery....

  19. 79. Regret

    • By Brooke Hoffer
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2008

    All through out high school I was more focused on making friends and what I looked like rather than actual school work. during my senior year I found out I would not be graduating and sat on the side while the class of '08 graduated without me. That summer my best friend went off to college without me and my world got a wake up call. I decided to finish high school and will be graduating on the 19th of December. Then I will meet my best friend at The University of Arizona.

    How do you go on knowing that you failed
    and all your friends suddenly disappeared and bailed
    Can you see the shame on everyone's face
    and your parents look at you like your the biggest disgrace...
