  2. 42. 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

  3. 43. My Life

    • By Kimberly L. Mixon
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2016

    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."

  4. 44. Winter Lullabies

    Winter speaks
    in blusters
    and lullabies fall
    with the snow.

  5. 45. 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.

  6. 46. 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,

  7. 47. Drowning

    This poem comes from Amy O Connor's poetry book, A Beautiful Complexity.

    They come in waves,
    my feelings for you.
    And not pretty whitecaps
    dancing at my feet.

  8. 48. 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.

  9. 49. 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.

  10. 50. 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.

  11. 51. 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.

  12. 52. 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,

  13. 53. Those Who...

    • 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.

  14. 54. 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.

    Love is like a bicycle
    Left out in the storm
    If it's not protected

  15. 55. 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.

  17. 57. In Heaven

    • By Jo
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2007

    A very close friend of mine has recently taken his life. This poem is something I wrote for his mother who I have grown up with, or should I say, watched me grow up.

    Up in heaven,
    They have someone new

    At those gates,

  19. 59. 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.
