  1. 21. The Butterfly

    I am constantly amazed by the simple beauty of all that is around us. All we need to do is to sit and be aware of the simple gifts of nature.

    The butterfly is a thing to behold,
    with colors more beautiful than gold.

    Flying hour by hour,

    You are so right!! I live in the country, where nature is so obvious around us. We need to take time to smell the roses. It's a beautiful feeling.

  2. 22. 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,

  3. 23. Childhood

    • By Aniket Jangam
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2016

    While going through hectic times for a couple of years, my little mind lingered to the innocent, ecstatic days of my childhood, which provoked me to write up this short poem and many others like it about life, the changing times, the changing people, and the way it all affects us! I would love to be able to live our old days yet again and do the things we missed out in the past!

    Going back to the time, doing all that I want,
    Just living up my life, getting all that I can't!

    Great was the childhood, innocent were the smiles.

  4. 24. The Song Of Wind

    • By Natalia Huja
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2017

    I wrote this poem because spring has gone and summer has arrived.

    Wind is like peace.
    A swaying song it sings.
    Drifting away in the summer wind.
    Dancing grass in the field,

  5. 25. 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.

  6. 26. Allow Me To Dream

    • By Jeff Mynatt
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2017

    I'm retired military who spent 32 years preparing and actively participating in wars. I just have to believe in my heart that there are worlds beyond our own were beings exist in peace. This poem came to me while I was standing alert in Kuwait while gazing at the multitude of stars shinning above me.

    As I look across a field of green,
    I dream.
    I look to the stars and wonder just how far,
    and I dream.

    • By Carley.Ruggles
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2011

    I wrote this remembering that my father and grandfather both sexually abused me, and I realized that I could move on.

    Memories, memories
    I have had.
    Some were good, though most were bad.
    Physical and sexual abuse occurred

  8. 28. 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

  10. 30. 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.

  12. 32. Seeing Ourselves Clearly

    It’s difficult to take in the entirety of something
    when you are standing inside of it.
    Valleys are best seen from peaks.

    • By Marijke Theart
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2016

    I am a South African girl, and I have been writing poems for 5 years now.

    Those who judge are the ones who hurt the most.
    Those who preach are the ones who got preached at the hardest.
    Those who want to know everything are the ones who know the least.
    Those who have anger are the ones who really do care.

    • 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.

    My life really hasn't been easy, and when it gets bad, I love to write my feelings down and transform them into poetry. Hope I can help uplift someone today.

    My life hasn't been great,
    But I've made it through.
    My life hasn't been easy,
    But God said, "I've got you."

  17. 37. 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.

  19. 39. 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
