  1. 81. Our Brothers We Shall Defend

    • By Justin Montana Williams
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2011

    I wrote this poem to describe the emotional pains soldiers bring home. I wrote this last year in the eighth grade. These brave men and women serve overseas and see the horrors of war. They will never forget but will never stop defending.

    To those whom I've fought with
    and to those I don't know your name,
    we fought by one another.
    You did not die in vain.

  3. 83. Tribute To Dale Earnhardt Sr.

    I was in the Air Force and deployed to the Middle East the day Dale Earnhardt crashed. We were lucky enough to have a TV to see the race. Later that night, I sat in my bunk and wrote this for him.

    I have built this machine with bleeding hands.
    I have shaped it to slice the wind.
    I have shined it with polish and sweat.
    I have balanced it with feel

  5. 85. Job Loss

    • By Chefkitty
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2011

    This poem is for people who have lost their jobs and are really sad about it. But it tells you that you should always have hope no matter what the situation. Without hope, you wouldn't be there at all!

    Today I am tired,
    Because I got fired,
    And now I have nothing to do.

  6. 86. Be Proud Of Who You Are

    • By S Raine
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2010

    I try to instill in my daughters that we all are unique, so find yourself and be proud of who you are.

    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.

  7. 87. Love Is Better Than Hate

    • By Poppy Cooke
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2009

    This short poem personally tells me that life needs living to the fullest! I wrote this poem because of how I feel so strongly about people wasting their lives away when they have so much more they could be doing with their lives.

    Don't judge a book by its cover.
    Love is better than hate.

    Life's too short to waste opportunities

  9. 89. I Don't Like

    • By Sally.F
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2009

    I'm not a very hateful person, but I had to write an "I don't like" poem for school.

    I don't like poachers and animal harmers,
    Like Japanese whalers and fox shooting farmers.
    I don't like people who waste and litter,
    Bully and hurt or speak very bitter.

  15. 95. A Thorny Rose

    • By Kirston D. Warfield
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A young girl compares life to a rose.

    Our life is like a thorny rose
    Not perfect, but always beautiful
    The thorns represent the hardships in our lives.
    The delicate red petals represent the fun and beautiful things in our lives.
