New Blog Name

Hello?

Is anyone listening? Er, in this case, reading?

Obviously, this isn’t a poetry post. I’m pretty sure the title says it all. Anyway, I’ve been planning on starting a new blog for some time now. I thought of it but then changed my mind. The plan was to start a new blog after I’ve reached a thousand followers. Yes, I was supposed to stop posting new things here when I reached a thousand. Why? Because that was the goal and I reached it.

See, I started this blog about six years ago to keep my brain partially sane as I felt my job then was making me stagnate and my brain not functioning as it should. I didn’t expect I’d get this far, honestly. I figured I’d just go for it and try.

But, here I am……six years later and still at it. I still want to write poems, however, trying to come up with one on a daily basis can be a task. It is a task that I love doing nonetheless but I want to deliver great poetry. One that would touch people and inspire them.

That is the reason why I wanted to start a new blog. My younger brother, advised me to keep this one instead since my followers have grown. That is why I’ll soon change the name of this blog as I won’t be posting poetry on a daily basis. I will work on sharing better poems in the future and I hope you guys will continue to support me on this.

 

PS. I’m still thinking of a better blog name….this may take a while 🙂

Near Christmas

The lights flicker and glow

The time and the moment pass by slow

I watch the world busy itself

Put myself up on the shelf

I sit with a warm cup of coffee on hand

Looking at this beauty so grand

And then my thoughts drift to you

Wondering if your Christmas would still be blue

It’s near Christmas, I hope you feel the warmth.

Looking, Searching

I hunger for love

I thirst for kindness

I crave for honesty

Over

The world is not as cruel as they made you believe

People are not as selfish as they seem

And it’s never too late to start over

Nameless

You can’t find the words to describe me.

I am known and unknown to you.

I am a familiar face and a stranger at the same time.

You think you know me but you are doubtful.

You look for the slightest touch of familiarity but it’s not there.

You stare and wonder and ask yourself

“Who is she?”

Everybody looks pretty

Seems perfect and flawless

While I…

I am plain

How She Dreamed

She dreamed wide awake

Dipped her toes on the warm sun

And let her hair dance on the night breeze

Moon Rabbit

On a full moon with clear skies,

You’ll see me hopping around the moon.

Silently watching the world from space

Silently bidding people goodnight.

Many call out to the man on the moon

While I am all but forgotten.

Poets

Poets are mostly introverts

Whose emotions they pour over

Art

Music

Poetry

Stories

They do not seek attention but would like the world to know they exist

We exist!

.

They see beauty in the sorrow

Turn ugly into pretty

They cry silently though

Their tears they turn to inspiration to others

.

They are dreamers

They are poets

Harsh

Harsh words keep me from being myself

Although I still try to love myself more

Each day…

Harsh people kill me slowly inside

They devour what little self-esteem I have left in me

Hearts Beat

Some hearts are full

Some have lost almost all

Some hearts ache

Some hearts break

Some hearts want to no longer feel

Other hearts hurt but then learn to heal

Hearts can bend, break and fall

But hearts can also forgive and under the sun, stand tall

A Real Surrealist

Feel My Words

The Midnight Ember

An Ember for Thought

GOD'S POETIC CHILD!!!

Dear Reader, I am here to give you a little taste of poetry with some water on the side. When you come on my blog that's all that you will taste is Poetry.

You might even come to get a taste of this poetry again. Don't be afraid to let your kids read this blog. My poetry is for and to help the youth. Bring them along with you. You both are scrolling down your phone or on the computer anyway. Let's have fun and get a taste of some poetry. I promise this type of poetry tastes delicious.
