Life Poems, Poetry
The richness and value of worth
cannot be replaced with things on earth.
Most judge people by what they possess.
How much power they gain or how they dress.
Things are temporal and can be quickly lost.
You can’t put your trust in them at any cost.
It is good to have comforts in life, don’t hug them too tight.
They might slip through your fingers, fleeing in the night.

The world is in need of good,
So throw away the bad,
It’s no use to you,
I’ve seen people regret the fact,
That threw their good away,
So instead of regretting the life you’ve had,
Do something good,
And live in happiness,
Till the end of your life,
There is a fact of life,
That there will always be evil,
Evil makes us see what is good in the world,
To see beyond,
And act to our fullest,
Without the night,
We wouldn’t see the stars,
Without the hatred,
We wouldn’t see the love,
So now you know the reason,
Of the good existence,
That puts the bad away,
So nothing is good,
Without the bad,
However in the end,
After seeing it all,
What would you choose?
Or the bad?
What did you choose in life?
Good? Or bad?
We must try to understand,
That day doesn’t happen,
Without seeing the night,
Did you choose love?
Or did you choose hatred?
It’s all in the heart,
And of course,
So we need to understand,
Good is nothing,
Without the …….BAD!

A glimpse, a glimpse is all you get
If you make but one mistake
So wisely choose the path you take
For one wrong foot, one miss step
A glimpse is all you get
A mere look, a glance
Of a place so rare
Is not something for much care
For as you look you must reap
And a faint glance cannot keep
So wisely choose your path
And if you make it straight
You will get to that place so great
But if you make but one mistake
A glimpse, a glimpse is all you take

Love….. a term constantly over used.
Her heart is a power system hope her boyfriend doesn’t blow a fuse.
These people leave me all amused.
They say they’re all that, but have nothing to lose.
The sky isn’t my limit cause I could touch the moon.
Love is bitter sweet so I put sweet n low inside my spoon.
Excuse my premature maturity.
Her heart is temporarily broken, and she sees the much awaited cure in me.
I’m 14 feeling as if I’m 45.
Cause I notice people go through with life, but never seem to fully come alive.
I could turn a word into a master piece.
Life is a long story so you better take a comfortable seat.
Her heart is my favorite retreat.
Love is bitter sweet like a rotten peach.

There are millions of people out there with ugly hearts.
They think using and hurting others is play. Other people are only here for their amusement.
But when it ends won’t they be surprised.
There are thousands of good hearted people out there.
Who think loving and caring is the way to go.
Everyone else is the same they think, here to care about others.
But when it ends won’t they be surprised too.
But for now the world keeps on spinning.
Around and around like a bowling ball.
Headed for that last big strike.

There was a time when everything was right,
each moment was blissful and bright.
Carefree, evergreen smile flashing on the face
but now life seems to loose its pace.
Everywhere is dark, no ray of hope,
no chances are left to recoup.
The evil void seared my happy soul
tears are flowing, which I can’t control.
Finding way out of it, I wasn’t sure
just wondering if I can find any cure.
But time heals all the pain,
after drought there always comes rain.
Even though life seems to be full of jerks
but letting yourself down will never work.
Parents’ love cannot be described in brief
and true friends are always beside us in our grief
There are many people who make life worth living
so cheer up and start dreaming.
Just believe in yourself and your dreams,
though impossible things may seem
Someday, somehow you’ll get through
to the goal you have in view

Life is a ride
it goes up and down
and sometimes you have to run
or turn around
so many things happen
a lot of drama to take
but we live through it
leaving behind each mistake
you bought yourself a ticket
and now you’re on the ride
so make the best of it
don’t jump off the side
so put on a smile
you’ll survive a bump on the way
and then you’ll be shooting up again
because that’s the price you have to pay
