  1. 21. A Teacher

    A teacher is like a candle that burns itself to light the world of others, the one who builds the pillars of a nation, so we should respect teachers.

    A teacher introduces us to a new vision of life,
    to make us as sharp as a knife.

    Someone who gives us a new sight,

  2. 22. What Are Heavy?

    Christina Rossetti reflects on things that are heavy, brief, frail, and deep. She shares both concrete items and metaphorical ones, whether it’s a state of mind or moment in time. It’s a poem that makes the reader reflect on the meaning of life.

    What are heavy? Sea-sand and sorrow;
    What are brief? Today and tomorrow;
    What are frail? Spring blossoms and youth;
    What are deep? The ocean and truth.

  3. 23. Smile, Rainbow, A Helping Hand

    • By Michelle Ebel
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2016

    Everyone has their days when they just need to be themselves.

    At times we need a little smile
    or a rainbow big and bright.
    At times we need a helping hand
    to help us make things right.

  4. 24. 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.

  6. 26. Wishes

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

    The orange glow of the fireplace
    fills the room with Christmas cheer.
    To my family I raise my glass,
    full of wishes for the year.

  12. 32. 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

  13. 33. What Healing Is Meant To Look Like

    I’ve been holding on to little fragments of you for a long time, because I could never bring myself to let you go all at once.

    But deep down, I know I need to let go of these pieces. I can’t move on when I’m living next to these reminders of the people we were - the way we wrapped ourselves in each other. I don’t know what healing is meant to look like, but this feels like a good place to start.

    I don’t know
    what healing
    is meant
    to look like,

  15. 35. Forever

    • By Terri Nicole Tharrington
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2012

    My name is Terri Nicole Tharrington. I am in the US NAVY and I have been writing poems since I was 14 years old. I want to get out of the military and major in writing but I am not sure how far it is going to get me. My poems started off depressing because of all of the complications and hurdles I faced growing up as a kid, but being around positive attitudes and finally believing in myself has gotten me a long way. Thanks for reading! Feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Forever we remain oblivious to the future,
    lost to the past and enduring our torture.
    Forever we take chances to settle our scores,
    losing some battles and winning some wars.

  16. 36. A Place To Be

    We all love being free. Still, how many really are? In the competitive, acquisitive world of today, I sometimes wonder how often we live free.

    Ever gotten there?
    To that place where
    You have nothing to prove
    and can just be.

  17. 37. The Comfort Of Pain

    As a poet, I’ve grown used to embracing pain; to treating it as the fuel I need to create. These days I hold sadness to my chest like it’s another organ, something I’m terrified to be without. This doesn’t mean I’m always depressed or continually sad, but it does mean that I’ve learned to rely on pain I’ve already experienced. Sometimes, I wonder if I’ve begun to seek it out, to find new ways to shatter this thing behind my ribs.

    Live this way long enough and, eventually, the heartbreak begins to feel comforting; like an old friend. If I’m honest, i can’t help thinking it’s the only thing I can rely on not to leave. It’s the closest thing I have to home.

    Live with it
    long enough
    and pain begins
    to feel familiar,

  18. 38. 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.
