  1. 41. The Healing Power Of Mother Nature

    The weight of life is much too heavy for us all at times. I’ve found nature to be one of the best healers for anxiety.

    maybe the answer is simple,
    and all along
    there's been relief--
    if the strands of your soul

  4. 44. Finding Hope

    I am learning to find hope
    in the smallest and most unexpected places
    like the whispers through the forest
    and the velvet evening sky

    This poem speaks to me. I really like it. We spend so much of our time focusing on things that really don't make life better and we miss out on many of the things that do.

  5. 45. And The World Carries On

    The plates will still shift
    and the clouds will still spew.
    The sun will slowly rise
    and the moon will follow too.

  6. 46. Choose How You Spend Your Time

    I spend an inordinate amount of time in front of an empty page, or a computer screen. In part, because I’m terrified of being forgotten, of living a life that isn’t worth remembering. So I’m constantly trying to leave something behind, be it poetry, fiction, art or music. While this makes me feel better about dying, there is a part of me that wonders how much I’m missing out on. That wonders about how I’m choosing to spend my time in the light. This poem is featured in my debut book Tell The Birds She’s Gone.

    You cannot
    slow the setting
    of the sun.
    You can only choose

  7. 47. A Day Away

    I've struggled with depression most of my life. I tend to see the worst in things and often need to be reminded of things most people do naturally. This short poem is one of those reminders. A great tragedy occurs when the bad days numb us to the good ones. Try to enjoy the good days, because they don't last that long. Try not to fear the bad days, because they won't last that long. Whether time is currently your friend or foe, however it can help you today, remember today won't last that long.

    Some feelings are shallow, some feelings are deep.
    Some make us smile, some make us weep.

    Some we love, some we don't.

  8. 48. Road To Nowhere

    Sometimes it's great to just take off and go exploring. I love the beautiful scenery that you can find off the beaten path.

    I like to blaze new trails
    on the road to nowhere.
    On a journey through time,
    there are new vistas to behold

  9. 49. My Love Is Gone

    The hardest thing is losing the love you have.

    Lord, hear my prayer oh so dear.
    My heart is aching; my mind isn't clear.
    My love has left me; it hurts my soul.
    Without that love, I don't feel whole.

    Wishing my family the best for the Christmas and giving Christmas wishes.

    full of wishes for the year.

  11. 51. 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.

    If it's not protected
    Rust begins to form

  12. 52. Nothing Gold Can Stay

    Robert Frost is one of the most famous poets from the 1900s. He never earned a formal college degree, but he did receive honorary degrees from more than 40 colleges and universities. This famous poem shows that everything in life is cyclical and that the beauty in nature only lasts for a short period of time. Even though life ends, there is new life waiting to come forth.

    Nature's first green is gold,
    Her hardest hue to hold.
    Her early leaf's a flower;
    But only so an hour.

  13. 53. A Fallen Leaf

    When we are new to love, sometimes we fall too quickly and allow ourselves to be put in situations we end up regretting. Everything changes after that. Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850-1919) was an American author and poet who became known as a poet even before graduating high school.

    A trusting little leaf of green,
    A bold audacious frost;
    A rendezvous, a kiss or two,
    And youth for ever lost.

  14. 54. Underface

    Children, teenagers, and adults as well, can all identify with the message of this poem for children from Shel Silverstein published in his book, "Every Thing On It." Sometimes we all feel like no one really truly knows us, as if we are wearing a mask and our true self is hidden from all underneath our face.

    Underneath my outside face
    There's a face that none can see.
    A little less smiley,
    A little less sure,

  15. 55. The Opposite Is Also True

    • By Coral
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2018

    My mother died 3 years ago from suicide (it's longer than I thought). I was just 11 years old. Since then, I have been writing poems. Some are just random scribbles. Others have a lot of thought. This poem is one I have written recently. My poems have been veering more toward "getting over it" recently. But I still miss her every single day, and I will never stop using my birthday wishes or shooting stars on wishing for her back.

    They say it's sweet that we laugh
    because our bodies literally
    can't contain the
    joy.

  17. 57. Let Love Go

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2017

    I wrote this poem with the intention of letting go of someone I love deeply who no longer claims to love me.

    His love for you,
    he cannot show.
    For this alone,
    just let him go.

  19. 59. A Simple Plan

    In today's life, everything is so complicated and complex that we forget what's really important. Life doesn't really need to be as complicated as we make it. Life is basically simple, live each day to the fullest and make a stand for your beliefs.

    Simple Sam was a simple man.
    He lived each day by a simple plan.
    Enjoy your life and live while you can.
    Make each day count and take a stand.

  20. 60. A Winter Eve

    I've never found a time so peaceful as the evening of a fresh fallen snow.

    The crunching snow beneath my feet
    Breaks the silence of the winter eve.
    I hear the patter of beginning sleep
    On my evening stroll, as others sleep.
