Short Poems

Short and Simple Poems

A short poem may be a stylistic choice or it may be that you have said what you intended to say in a more concise way. Either way, they differ stylistically from a long poem in that there tends to be more care in word choice. Since there are fewer words people tend to spend more time on choosing a word that fits the subject to perfection. Because of this meticulous attitude, writing a short poem is often more tedious than writing a long poem.

  1. Be Proud Of Who You Are

    I Am Unique

    I come with no wrapping or pretty pink bows.
    I am who I am, from my head to my toes.
    I tend to get loud when speaking my mind.
    Even a little crazy some of the time.

  6. Camouflaged

    • By Kim McCrea
    • Published: February 2016
    Poem About The Beautiful Chaos Of Life

    In all chaotic beauty lies a wounded work of art.
    Beautiful but torn, wreaking havoc on my heart.
    Camouflaged by insecurities, blinded by it all.
    I love the way you sit there and barely notice me at all.
