  2. 42. 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.

    We build a snowman
    No one will know
    For the snow will melt away

  6. 46. 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.

    Very insightful. Self-love can be (and maybe should be) the first love we encounter. Even when we're not perfect.

  9. 49. This Is Who I Am

    • By Megan R. Bentz
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2016

    I wrote this poem for my history class, and it expresses who I am in a way but also gives the reader a chance to see who they think they are.

    This is who I am:
    I am a fighter.
    I have a lot of baggage from my past.
    I may have some experience and some wisdom,

  10. 50. Life Isn't Black And White

    You can be unhappy and still be in love.
    You can be in love and still walk away.
    You can walk away and still feel the weight of loss.
    You can feel the weight of loss and still stand tall.

  11. 51. 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.

  12. 52. 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.

  14. 54. Let Love Go

    • By Kerry P. Howland
    •  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.

  18. 58. The Strength In You

    I’ve spent my entire adult life struggling with anxiety, always worrying about the worst case scenario. Even now I don’t know how to love something without being terrified of losing it. If I’m honest, some days I feel like I’m built entirely of glass.
    But I think there may be something profound in suffering; in the realisation that you’re stronger than you thought. I think back to the things I’ve been through, and while those experiences left their mark, I take solace in the fact that I’m still here; still pulling breath into these lungs. Maybe strength is a label that’s only earned from resilience; from enduring.
    The truth is, I had no idea how much I could take until the world showed me. There is strength here, even if I never wanted to find it.

    There is
    a strength in you
    you haven’t even
    begun to find.

  19. 59. 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

  20. 60. 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
