My Poetry

This is a display of my poetry. You can leave comments or your own poems. I agree not to use anyone elses poetry without permission and would require others to do the same.

I put my age on here 4 years ago. Instead of updating it every year, I shall just say that I was born in 1980 and you can work out how old I am. :) I am Mum to 2 children(both boys)who have been inspiration for much of my poetry. I have had several poems published in different books but I thought it would be nice to keep it all in one place. Unfortunately I don't have all of my older poetry so this will be mostly recent.

Why are things so complicated?
You try so hard just to be berated.
You start to feel a part of things
But then people show their true feelings.

Why do we work so hard towards a goal
Only to realise we're getting too old?
You think you've achieved and you raise a toast
Just as someone moves the goal post.

But keep on trying, that's what I say
Surely your time will come one day
Do your best and think out loud
Of yourself you must be proud.

We might get down, think we're aiming too high
There will be times to heave a sigh
But believe in yourself and in everything you do
And others will believe it too.

"and others will believe it too" :)
Love that line.. I always think the last line of a poem is the most important. If the poem ends on a good note, it leaves you feeling good.
