Be the change you want to see
Try not to judge, let others be
The rain will stop, the storm shall pass
Pleasure is pleasing and love can last

Set up for sorrow, it's hard to see
Open your eyes, switch off your tv
Put down the remote and venture outside
Get out in to nature where healing resides

Turn off your phone, log off the net
You'll be surprised with the solace you get
Write a poem, cook a nice meal
Declare your love, see how it feels

Put away the plastic, stop doing your hair
Go back to basics, even though it's rare
Laugh at your troubles, hug it out
Why are you frowning, what's that all about
A sign of the times, the information age
Escape from the trap, break out of your cage

Tell me now, how do you feel
Please keep it up, do we have a deal
Memories last but gadgets do not
Live your life fully, run from the rot

Some short

Some are super long with loads of meaning and words and paradoxes, they may even make you cry or birth new thoughts. Educate you, not even written for you, imaginative, dont even make sense. May even seem like a song but not a book. No rules about structure, do what you feel like. Some about places, people, some about love. Some written for comedy, for the pure joy.

A summary of how I see poems
I could have gone on for longer

So many poems
and stories
have gone unwritten
due to fear of not being good enough

These words are for me,
For I'm the one who's hurting,
I'm just healing myself.
I often wonder why we can't understand other's poems sometimes, but deep down it is the one who writes it knows the value of it.

It’s a rare beauty
to know what you want
and have the courage to chase it.

I don't pay attention to the
World ending.
It has ended for me many times
And began again in the morning.

Self love is loving ones character
Self love is realising how I am treated
Self love is listen to myself
Self love is realising others have their own opinions and experiences
Self love is personal boundaries
Self love is not perfect
Self love is growth and healing
Self love is awareness of negative thoughts
