Who does a man turn to when in despair?
Who to go to when you’re not there?
Who defines themselves by action?
Who would join that twisted faction?
What does a man do in life?
What do we plunge through? strife?
What does a man do when he gives in?
What does he do but repent his sin?
My instructor assigned us a poem in which we had to write in the writer's point of view, in more of a metaphorical and mysterious sense, not so much literal. So before I turn it in, I'm looking for a little more feedback. As always, it would be much appreciated and it will help me a lot. Thanks! ^^...
A poem i've found hidden as it was abandoned previously but i resurrected it from oblivion. It called out to me and i said "Soul! i hear you calling. Oh please give a little respect to me."
What good is it to feel, for our emotions vary
From Happiness to sorrow, from hope to despair
A poem I wrote that is dedicated to SigmaSD. I hope everyone likes it ^^
Every time you smile
It makes my day
You make me go that extra mile
And you take my pain away
From the heavens above flew a pretty dove;
White and pure. That i might see it right
In my sight on a moonlit night; Such rarity
I much agree to myself. Of all the things i love
And hold dear, is of God's creation from here
To foreverwhere; And full of cheer i be,
Rid with fear of death as...
It captivates our senses
And purify's our spirit
It cover's the fences
We walk, stand.. dance in it
It falls slowly and graceful
Tiny cold beams of flakes
Falling innocence yet tasteful
Our warmth it takes
This is a tribute to all brave men and women who fought in war not just soldiers but journalist who risk their lives for the truth. In every war, there are casualties; and glory shall be given to those heroic deaths by the scribes. However, the honor in death will never be worth a life long lived...
A Lover's Sodem Cry.
You can do no wrong....
For the shadows of my love forever enlightens you..
For I am yours to bend
Trying to put you on the path to mend..
In my arms;
Will you spend, an eternity with me?
Hated by those who know me not.
A faintly herd scream of despair
Shatters not even the strongest of the hearing
Timidly offering no justice to a lost orpahn.
Awakening to a desperate attempt at life
Showering in reget and angish...
To answer your question, "No."
Something you know nothing about…
I thought you loved me…
I herd you say it…
Did you mean it?!
Because you squashed it…
Killed it, like it meant nothing.
I was inspired to write this after reading Homer and Shakespeare.
Two poets that survive the ages of time who enriched us with their brilliance and magic. HAHA as if. No really yes.... This is the first time i've done a poem without rhymes.
Behold the sea of sand, the dry wastelands,
A poem I have my own reasons of posting ^^ It's dedicated to my sisters .Elmer, *Tsuki*, and Genki Dama. I hope you like it.
You Are My Other Half
You are my guiding star
You are my shining light
You are my everything
The day light breaks again
Another day has begun.
But still no sleep has come.
My body is weary
My mind overworked.
I lie awake thinking
But what I am unsure.
I need to break free from the cycle I endure.
So it all comes down to this then?
Not the beginning, not the end
Just the now
Thought it would be more than this
Was sure I couldn't miss
Through it all
To shy to kiss
this one actually i made in season of autumn as it is described by shakespear autumn season is the poetic season
Poetic Autumn Season
In autumn, when the trees are brown,
Little leaves come tumbling down.
Without making the slightest sound,
They lie so quietly on the ground.
I put a lot of thought, emotion, time and effort into this. Luckily I've never gone through something this devastating. However, I tried my best to see it through a girls eyes that has lost someone she has always loved even though he was always so closed off and never let her in. If you need me to...
It's these feelings that trap me
Locking me up inside a heart that's already died
Tormenting me with the memories
Of when I use to be so happy
I want to break down and cry
Just like I did this last time
But I don't want to shed a tear over him
Wrote this a while ago, but didn't post it.
But I hope ya like it, and thanks for reading.
This world has gone one with out us,
This poem made me cry when I wrote it and I personally thought this poem was one of the best I have ever written. Not bragging, just self confidence.
We were all born for a reason,
Either positive or not,
Some of us Sparkle,
Some of us do not.
Even though we ain't all perfect,
This will be my last poem here on af as this title say the poem you have been reading all this time was written by a stranger within me a ghost you can say that is retiring from writing poems sound stupid but true
He'd drink by himself
And raise a weathered thumb,
Towards the high shelf,...
I shot for a longer type of poem here and well when I made this one I thought it was a bit silly <_< I hope you guys and gals enjoy.
Crossing That Road
- We all know that chicken,
- The one that crossed the road,
- Right? Wrong? Who knows.
- It is a simple joke,
- But much much more,
My mind wanders into infinity
Anarchy and chaos it unknowingly meets
Silent and serene though my countenance may be
Assumptions are the tools for the mind to play tricks
Lost in the depths of fear and desire
Oblivious to the happenings in the realm of reality
What thoughts have come...
my will to live
when one thing
ends the other
thought i was finished
thought i was through
A poem I wrote in school today ^^ one I think needs a lot of work because I think I could have made it better. Any comments would be greatly appreciated :)
Time awaits from the beginning
Time awaits from the end
Eternity is measured upon
The lives that come and went
Love I know . . . is hidden treasure
Even answers are unknown for sure
Love I know . . . is a mysterious word
The reason, God created the world
Love I know . . . is a mystifying maze
Searching and searching for that lovely face
Love I know . . . is like a pouring rain
Giving and giving...
A time of knowing
Distance in between
The empty space filled, by us growing
You kept my heart warm
As you held me in your arms
With your wonderful charm
I tend to wonder
If you are a star
There is a time for happiness..
There is a time for sadness...
There is a time for everything...
This is my time for sadness...
It's torturing me much...
It breaking up my hope...
But you came to me...
You strengthen me...
You give me hope...
One boy standing
On the edge of destiny
With instinct and bravery
Guts as his testimony
"I will survive!
Push you to the limits!
I'll never give up!
I'm in it, to win it!"
An excluded thorn bush
Maybe the sand has a partner in the ocean?
Perhaps they hold hands
Once again I have decided to write a poem and get closer to what I want in life. I hope you guys and gals like this poem, I made it actually within twenty seconds, because I'm just that good!
- Where the Boogeyman creeps
- Where the young boy leaps
- Its the zone where monster's lie
