I'll walk away from this land,
Where nothing good ever happens.

When the sun shines in pride,
I see anger bloom all around.

When the wind laughs,
It takes away my joy.

Heavy rain of silence,
Left to drown me in remorse.

Chains of burden,
hinder me from leaving this land.

I feel dead and drained from unearthing  escape routes,
Perhaps my afterlife will be more promising.

Drifting off into a day dream,
Appears to be my only escape,
Where I walk away from this land,
Where nothing good ever happens.
No matter what grief or depression you are going through, it's not the end of the world. You will come out of it.
I know in my heart
We're here to grow
Become like stars
Shine with a benevolent glow

Light up a life
Show love to someone
Keep in mind
It's a job never done

The more you shine
The brighter we get
Let happiness reign
Keep your torch lit

I feel like the only person who feels so plain about my stretch marks. I dont hate them or love them they're just there. Doesnt stop me from wearing a bikini. I'm fully aware that my body is just a vessel I'm using to experience life better and it doesnt matter how I look. I love myself inside and out and stretch marks are just there. Doesnt make me any uglier. I had stretch marks on my thighs before I got pregnant, and idk why because i was always super skinny. Got stretch marks from my pregnancy. Because I carried a ******* child, ya know? What does society expect from me? I literally made life, I'm BOUND to be left with some battle scars.

If you think you are going to die of old age with a perfect body with no scars, no stretch marks, absolutely nothing gone weird or wrong along the way, you're wrong. Every mark on your body shows you've actually LIVED LIFE and didnt hide from it. Be proud of every dent, every stitch, every scar, and ******, every stretch mark. Shows you had some fun and experiences in this short time you have here on earth. Don't you dare hate yourself for THAT.
Not really poem but cool

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust) - 71

BismillahIr RahmanIr Raheem

A valuable lesson everyone should eagerly grasp
No pleasant matter how we learn precisely
You undoubtedly have to learn properly.

Wherever you promptly initiate, it will properly end.
And wherever ends it will begins newly.
Its unthinkable just a valuable lesson
That everyone should naturally learn.

In our active life one-time,
We typically teach to others.
During times others uplift us,
A moral lesson to eagerly absorb.
A key lesson about yourself!

Allah Khair..... Khairul Rabul Alameen Yah Arrahmanur Yah Raheem

raise me from the void
stretching for a taste of joy
build where hate destroys

sun kissed cheeks of grace
lift young hearts from darkened space
ascend where love waits

hey pretty girl
you know you're a beauty right?
the world can see it
and that's a fact
but is your own reflection
within your line of sight?

a special girl
you are indeed
this world is so lucky
to have you, please believe..
to yourself you seem less than
to what I would deem as perfection.
I just thought I'd let you know.

people see your skill

   and name it Talent

      in reality,

         Talent walked you to the door

            knocked twice,

               then disappeared

                  and you were left with Grit.

Chase the sun.

Then watch it fall.
Water her ashes, but keep her dry.

Only then can she thrive.
