    I mostly write in freeverse, follow no set rules for poetry. It expresses who I really am. So, here's a few of my poems, and maybe I'll keep this thread updated..

    Untitled

    The feelings
    and thoughts
    of a person
    are mixed
    are confused
    are complicated

    The words
    and structure
    of a book
    of a poem
    are simple
    yet difficult

    The weather
    and elements
    of everything
    are different
    are muddled
    yet clear

    The workings
    and processes
    of a mind
    are many
    are few
    are unique

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Me

    I am lost
    perhaps never discovered
    never to be found

    My life has
    been one struggle
    following the next

    I dream of
    a new start
    to fully understand

    I am just
    one small person
    grasping a concept

    Somehow I know
    that soon things
    will change forever

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Dreams

    I dream
    to change the world
    for everlasting peace
    for poverty to become myth
    for global warming to halt

    I dream
    of a safer world
    for war no longer
    for bullying to be banished
    for cruelty to cease and violence to vanish

    I dream
    of a brighter world
    for joy and happiness
    for fluffy chickens and fuzzy pompoms
    for the morning to be definate

    I dream
    of a cleaner world
    for pollution to stop
    for trees to remain erect
    for recycling to reign

    But my dreams
    for the world
    will never ever
    could never ever
    become a reality

    Eggs

    Eggs
    round
    smooth
    perfect

    Eggs
    fragile
    cold
    warm

    Eggs
    palm-fitting
    comforting
    light

    Eggs
    mental
    unassuming
    understanding

    Eggs
    psychic
    intellectual
    alienated

    Eggs
    round
    smooth
    perfect

    I Sit

    I sit
    and I wait
    I wonder
    about everything
    and nothing

    I walk
    and I run
    I think
    about tomorrow
    and eternity

    I lie
    and I sleep
    I dream
    about people
    and places

    I laugh
    and I cry
    I hope
    about things
    and events

    I sit
    and I wait
    I wonder
    about everything
    and nothing

    Questions

    When you have written about everything,
    What do you write?

    When your world has been severely shaken,
    Do you continue?

    When you don't know the answer,
    Should you guess?

    When you wake from sleep,
    Can you remember your dream?

    When everything has gone wrong,
    Is there still hope?

    When everything you believe in is fake,
    Would you still believe?

    When everyone you know has disappeared,
    Will you give up?

    When you live for the moment,
    Must you enjoy all of it?

    When you are pleased,
    Remember to smile

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    last one, promise :) For now, anyway

    Love

    Is it love if
    you get hurt so deep that
    it feels like time
    won't heal this wound?

    Is it love when
    no matter what you do
    they just won't listen
    and hurt you more?

    Is it love if
    you're unrespected and
    used and the whole
    relationship was a lie?

    Is it love when
    no matter how much they
    hurt you, you'd give anything
    to see or talk to them once more?

    Is it love if
    your heart hurts because
    of what they did to you
    that will haunt you forever?

    Is it love when
    they say they love you,
    but only want the one
    thing that you don't?

    What is love?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Thankyou for reading :) Any feedback would be much appreciated
