  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. 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.

    You're bound to be burned.

    • By Jane Kim
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2015

    This poem is about all our memories being there for us when we want to remember.

    Memories in my life fade away
    As I replace them with others.
    They are forgotten and stored away.
    Although the memories are pushed to the side,

  8. 28. 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.

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

  10. 30. 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.

    • 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."

  12. 32. 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.

  15. 35. 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

    •  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.
