I started writing poetry a few years ago. I thought I would share some my favorites.
This is the oldest poem I have. I’m not sure when it was written. If I were to guess I would say around Sept-Dec 2010. Because the summer before was when I really got into poetry and I brought the notebook with some friends when we went school shopping.
What a true friend friend I’ll be.
I’ll be your friend
In darkness or rain
When the stormy winds blow
or the birds softly sing.
I’ll be your friend
In sickness and pain
When meadows are bright
With summer’s first light
or when trees fall
and when all your world burns.
The inspiration for this came from a friendship that started in 2009. We are still best friends to this day. I had always wanted to have a close friend. I started praying for a close friend I could share everything with. God brought her into my life and by his grace our friendship has made it through.
I wrote this right before I moved away from my closest friends and a good church. I had grown up so much there and I really didn’t want to leave. Spring of 2011
When my ship is sinking low
and all I see is woe
When I feel I can’t go on
and life has passed me on
That’s when He comes walking
on the troubled sea where my ship is sinking down
and he whispers
“My child I am here, don’t let go
If I can walk on water
and created the skies and sea
Then I can help you through this trial
that seems so hard to bear.”
I don’t like good byes and I don’t like uncertainty. Moving across country involves both. My faith was tested and shaken but it did not fail me.
After we moved if felt like everything that could go wrong was going wrong. We ended up living in a motel 6 for a month, with the whole family and our pets. Not very fun even if you don’t mind sharing a space.
Lord I need your help
I have no one I can turn to now
There’s no shoulder to lean on
I have no strength to press through this storm
The waves are high, the sky is dark, I’m sinking
Lord I need your help and love.
On top of living in a hotel, I was having a hard time being the new kid again after having so many friends a few months before.
I wrote this one after we got our new house. My bed was right by the window.
I love it when the morning light falls on my brow
The one who made all things to be
Made the sun that we might see.
I really like the peacefulness of sunrises and sunsets.
I got smart and started dating my poems lol! I wrote this one on Nov, 21, 12.
When your tears
fall like a summer shower, rain
when your fears
over take you, life’s excruciating pain
When no one hears
they over look your fervent cry.
are the stares of all passing by
when heavenly ears
seem so far away
down your shoulders, this burden to stay.
I was feeling very emotionally overwhelmed. I didn’t know how to handle it all, earlier that month I had been to my great grandfathers funeral and I was behind in some classes because of it. I was stressed and a wreck.

I loved you
and you turned away
I gave you my all
Yet you did not stay.
I call for you
and you hear me not
I have forgiven you
yet others have you sought
I stand here waiting
my arms are open
you never come
you keep hiding your face often
My heart weeps for you
My blood was spilled for you
But you live for you
You’ve love only for you
I must judge you
I must call for justice
You no longer have favor in my sight
you rejected my son and my light
I can no longer protect you
from the evil you do
I cannot see the sin covering you
Leave, I never knew you.
I was studying the end day and times. It’s still hard for me to understand the love and patience of God for us humans. It is just to awesome for my understanding and words.

Sick in bed with the flu
what’s a girl to do?
the sky is gray and sad
I can hear a child crying and mad
My nose will not stop flowing like a stream
If I puke once more I will scream!
I was bored, sick and couldn’t sleep. I think by the end of it everyone in our house had it.
I hope you enjoyed walking down memory lane with me. I haven’t wrote any poems this year but I’m sure some will coming soon! I’ve been in a writing mood lately.
