'My Life Circles': Poems of Hope: Album One: A Collection About Sad, Brave, Positive, Inspirational Poems and Haiku.

Each Completes a Life Circle.

These Few Poems of Hope.

'My Life Circles' : Poems of Hope: Album One: A Collection About Sad, Brave, Positive,  Inspirational Poems and Haiku, by Pearldiver. A Life Circle will always move forward from its source; we as people who live in hope; are that source. There are many things that are special in our journey of life. Hope; gives every living person an opportunity to achieve a goal, a dream or a sense of well being. One of life’s full circles occurs when those hopes are realized and as a result; the hopes of another are also made tangible.

About Sad, Brave, Positive, Inspirational Poems and Haiku is a small and select collection of poems of hope. They are about the hope that we have in a variety of circumstances and of those times of loss when we feel that hope has deserted us. With Hope; we are truly blessed when our lives can be such; that others find strength in the way we allow that hope to guide us, enrich us and to allow us to pass on that enrichment. Explore Hope. After reading these poems, please take the time to mark the poem that you enjoyed most. Thanks for that.


And a 'Hopeless' Soul Departs.

We are always very quick to judge others and always believe that we know our children; when factually we don't and as such; should never judge them. The parents here missed seeing how brave and insightful their son really was, in giving hope.
We are always very quick to judge others and always believe that we know our children; when factually we don't and as such; should never judge them. The parents here missed seeing how brave and insightful their son really was, in giving hope.
They knew he wouldn't survive when at the scene of the crash: a shape moved away from the wreck and rejoined him to become one again, in the ambulance.
They knew he wouldn't survive when at the scene of the crash: a shape moved away from the wreck and rejoined him to become one again, in the ambulance.

Hope In the Power of Giving:

"Just hope," a mother said; consoling her son

He was broken; in hospital after the crash

His friend; the driver lay hung over and dying

In slow motion hope disappeared; lost in a flash.

=+=

And hope; this powerful, often bottled emotion

Provides a bridge between facts and dreams

The lost and dying drunk didn’t feel their pain

His sad death a selfish, hopeless act; it seems.

=+=

We had hoped that he’d make it through

But all his life we hoped he’d show us more

This distraught family of a hopeless soul

Dying; betrayed by the hopelessness he saw.

=+=

A surgeon came over and said; "Sorry for your loss"

Yes our only son; I don’t know how we will cope

Just a waste; he took our hopes and dreams

"Oh No!" said the surgeon; "Your brave son donated his heart; to give another hope!"

=+=

Sometimes untimely death provides a hope of life

If we care to look beyond our own anger and pain

We may see that life hopes are very precious things

A little hope can help us face our lives; or learn to live again.

It's a long road to find perfect.

Live to Hope Again.

She had hoped to find the perfect man

She told her friends that he’s the one

We haven’t met; just talked on the net

But he’s nice and we have such fun.

=+=

When they met; he charmed her over coffee

She hoped that he’d become her love

In a violent night he broke her heart

And then broke her nose, with that shove.

=+=

What if I had done everything he asked me to?

What if I had laughed at his sick joke yesterday?

Why did he hurt me; she sobbed from within her pain

Be sad; but be brave: Be strong enough; to always walk away.

oo0oo

Always Remember:

That YOU Have the Right to Be Happy! Never give up that right!

Hope warms you through the chill before the sunrise.

Hoping To Catch the Big Fish.

We cast our lines at the evening sunset

Out into the gentle swells of our favorite sea

We hoped to catch more than our breakfast

On a magic night we set a fire, fished and talked

Agreeing that on nights like this; fishing was meant to be.

=+=

Throughout the night we caught a feed

In this great place, was good company and fun

And now with an early morning rising tide

Equal parts of anticipation, hope and burley ruled

Inwardly, each of us now focused on hooking the big one.

=+=

In the change of light just before the sunrise

We cast fresh baits; I just knew they'd hit mine

That's the time when you can taste hope

The hope that warms you through that chill

And tells you "Strike that 20 pounder tugging on your line!"

=+=

There's something about fishing

Maybe it's just relaxing with a beer

Maybe it's quality time spent with mates

But I know on nights and mornings like this

It's just about fishing and just about being here.

So Many People all the Same.

Hope Lost on the Crowd.

People are too busy today: And they just don’t care

Hurriedly they jostle and push; their noses in the air

So many people moving; yet each alone in the crowd

Wise words fall unheard; lost to people far too loud.

=+=

So many people shut their eyes and just refuse to see

So many blind, busy people: Deafened by their apathy

So many apathetic people; they'll never change their ways

But if they don't talk or listen: How will they learn; the hopes of yesterday?

What's the Weather Like There?

But we always try to get it right!

The Cost of Hoping For Sunny Days.

=+=

Yes I have recovered from most of the pain

You know it’s been over a year since that storm

Today I try not to think about the weather anymore

But it just seems to always hurt on rainy days.

=+=

I have learned that if I keep my head down; it helps me

To see those puddles that precede the flash floods

And I don’t see those black clouds that carry bad luck

Oh yes, I’m also happy to say that; my wind has gone.

=+=

People always tell me; there is light at the end of the tunnel

But I don’t know what they mean; if they pat me as well

There’s a rainbow coming tomorrow; maybe hail; I can’t tell

I wonder why it seems to always hurt more on rainy days.

=+=

Yes I feel that I have recovered; from most of the pain

Since I planted cabbages the UV rays only go next door

And it doesn’t snow anymore since my prayers came true

I must tell you the good news; I found my remote on the floor.

=+=

Will it be an avalanche, an eruption, a dust storm or fire

That will determine the final future of this cruel world

If I open my door; the sun shines up my back passage

I suppose you’ve guessed; that I don’t chase; tornadoes anymore.

=+=

Well I must say that it’s been nice to catch up with you

And to hear all the news without a weather report

Time flies now that we are counting down to the end

Now it seems everyone is an expert today; yep that’s the trend.

=+=

Give my love to everyone at the met office;

I hope that I’ll be back on deck again when it’s finally warm

But all the pressure, those critic complaints take their toll

Try as we may; it seems we can’t always bring the sun out Norm

So I guess that’s why forecasters seem to hurt on rainy days

For us: With critics and no sun; there’s no shelter from the storm.

Hope: A reason to be your best.

Inspire Me; Give Me Hope.

There can never be too much hope

Nor too much love in a better world

A world in which dreams come true

A place that I have dreamed of sharing with you.

--oo0oo--

I hope these words find you well and happy knowing that your uniqueness provides special with an equal.

--oo0oo--

Believe in yourself and never give up

Though you may feel or see danger close by

They can never bully a brave mouse that knows;

Small spaces, patience, Judo and can really fly.

--oo0oo--

There is a state of art that men often miss

That every girl and woman will know

A subtle power that can turn every head

This deep state of love that makes her glow.

--oo0oo--

As a teenager, they tortured me until I could not spell my name

They tried to break me; take away my music; spirit and my belief

They beat me with electric shocks and sticks to make me lame

They took away the things I loved and laughed at my grief, my pain.

=+=

Today I have mastered far more than the power of the word

I have stood defiantly before those who left me bruised with bloody cuts

I have seen their pain in having to deal with words now no longer unheard

And watched their grief at knowing that; an empowered lame one; kicked their butts!

Never Give Up.... Kia Kaha.

--oo0oo--

Your perfection keeps growing.

My Hope Was Born With You.

{To:JasandNix}

==+==

When you were born, I was so proud

I held you so that you could hear my heart

And then you would always know who I was; as your father

=+=

When you were born, I was so proud

You held my little finger in your whole hand

And then you yawned and drifted off to sleep; safely

=+=

When you were born, I was so proud

I felt like all my dreams had come true

And when you smiled; new dreams formed with such hope

=+=

When you were born, I was so proud

I was marveled by the perfection that I saw before me

And as you grew up; your perfection also grew; flawless unlike me

=+=

Years have passed since the first day, that I held you

So long since you were born and yet I am still so very proud

I had always hoped that you would know and understand your father's heart

How special it was just to hold you and how hard it has been, being apart.

Hi zzron, thank you for reading this work, glad that you liked it. Btw if you are inspired by the fishing poem, the photos were taken only 10 minutes from my home and the fish weight was 21lb. Come over and cast a line one day, you are most welcome.. but we might not be able to speak as our accents (mine is Kiwi) clash big time.... you bring the bait. Thanks for taking the time Tex.

I laughed till I cried reading your profile; then I cried till I smiled reading your wonderful poetry and seeing the most incredible photoart I've seen in awhile. Somehow, I feel such a kinship. I had a similar youth, not on an island with a lighthouse and passing ships and a gollywog as a friend but on a very remote west Texas ranch with a black sambo doll as a friend and lots of sheep and goats as population.

Anyway, I felt your spirit reading you and was so happy to discover you here, thanks to your visit to my hub!

Thank you!

Hi... you are most welcome Nellieanna, thank you for taking the time to read my newest collection of shuffled words. Well, I guess if I made you laugh then I'm responsible for improving your day and for that I'm pleased.

It's funny that you had goats surrounding you.. so did I and I found them a complete waste of time for trying to have an intelligent conversation with. Once again thanks for your kind words.. Be Well and Take Care.

The strength, humour and beauty in these poems came shining through so loud and clear it may have changed the weather here. The photography just enhanced the mood even more - thank you. I should be used to it here on Hubpages, but finding talent like this as I'm cruising around on a Sunday morning, drinking coffee, always leaves me feeling like I've found treasure. And indeed I have :)

I especially liked "Hope in the Power of Giving." Sad and beautiful. A tough subject to explore and you did it without being overly sentimental. I'm new to hub pages, just getting my feet wet, and I was wondering about something I've noticed: why do so many hubbers, yourself included, put more than one poem in a hub, when there's a chance they might become lost in the pile? It seems to me that publishing them separately would get readers to give each individual poem more careful consideration. That being said, you are obviously keeping their attention! Thanks for the beautiful hub.


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 6 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi Steele Fields, welcome to HP and to my collection of randomly shuffled words; Thank you for readng them and for your compliments. The reason that I put more than one poem in my hubs, has to do with my preferred word count and hubbing style. The other thing is that my works generally score well as opposed to individual pages that tend to score lower.

I've looked at some of your work... you write well, nice to meet you; I spent some good time in Penn State (not in B&W striped PJs) Still follow the Phillies even though I'm a kiwi. Take Care and be well.

maven101 6 years ago from Northern Arizona

Rob...Thank you for these sage and compelling observations so poetically presented...Lots of wisdom and inspiration there...

I have never viewed Hope as a positive attribute to find success in life...Hope to me has been a weakness to face reality with determination...Hoping for the best does not trump doing your best, or accepting life on its terms...Saying I hope the world will come together in peace and cooperation is a pale shadow to doing something to make that happen...

I guess I have a Sisyphean view of the world in that I have forsaken all hope and replaced it with an inner strength that is untouchable, a sure confidence that I will prevail...low expectations provide a safe haven for dashed dreams...As always, your haiku inspires and delights...I have always read haiku out loud, sometimes to myself, and sometimes to my woman...your haiku is the sort that needs to be shared, discussed, and applauded...Thank you my friend for another poetic journey punctuated with wonderful pictures accentuating each poem's theme or message...Larry


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 6 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi Larry, Thanks for reading this collection and as always your objective and positive comments. I have also always viewed hope in the same regard as you, but then I considered the many aspects of Hope in their standalone form; positively. I found that hope is not, when used positively, a negative in any respect; in fact in some forms, Hope in itself is the motivation to succeed. I believe that many, as you state; don't drive it or use it as the base for making that event materialise. I believe that I have described this point within one of my poems of hope.

I have worked with people who have only had two things in their lives that they were able to rely on (beyond family) and found that what has driven them to succeed has always been that inner strength that is untouchable and the hope that using it positively and objectively; will equate to achieving the dream. Take Care and Be Well my friend.

It's quite something how much time, effort and care you put into your hubs. For a newbie like me, it's inspiring. Also love the subtle injection of humor: e.g. when the television remote is found on the floor. That had me laughing abruptly. You now have an apple in your fanpile (I'm not sure what fruit represents N. Americans).

Pearldiver 6 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi DTjnr, thanks for reading this collection of poems and for your awesome comment. Glad you like that poem about the weather man who no longer chases tornadoes.. that is one of the funniest poems that I have written.... as I was laughing throughout, thinking how can I take them on a journey in which they think I'm crazy, but in reality I'm describing something that they see everyday, yet don't realize? Had to to be either the news or the weather. Oh yeah... people from NZ are called Kiwis... It wasn't a reference to the fruit.. If you've left an apple in my fanpile.. an aussi is likely to munch it! Let me know if you suffer any sharp pain on ya.. you know! Take Care.

I'm glad you enjoyed this collection, I was testing different writing styles here and it seems I may have got some of them right... this is a very popular collection and has been read very extensively! Maybe I should have published it in hardcopy or charged a dollar? You take care and be well Karanda.. I hope you guys are over the problems from the flooding.

This collection of "hope" poems seems so melancholy; as if there really is no hope. Sadly. Blessings, Debby

Wow.. Debby.. I'm sorry you interpreted them that way, as clearly you must have missed the message that is carried within the poems. It seems others don't share your view either... they are Very Deep. However, you may well be right.. perhaps there is no Hope and the world will end in the Google Wars that we, who write must defend ourselves against. :) I always try to remember in poetry Debby, it is in itself an artform, when one is able to create a piece that is viewed in many different and significant ways.. Take care, thanks for reading my work.

Dear PearlDiver ~ So true. I believe there are two sides to every coin. Two faces to each poem. The desire and need for hope when there is so little. Thus, we give ourselves messages and talk about our needs. Reaching deeply inside for that little bit of hope to survive and keep alive. After you meditate upon the possibilities, tell whether there are times of hopelessness in-between those times of hope. Blessings, Debby

Hi Phoebe Pike, thank you for taking the time to read and comment on this poetry. Glad you enjoyed it and I certainly couldn't fault your work. I guess as a poet it is worthwhile working on the basis that if it moves..write it, until it makes you move. Thank you for such a lovely compliment.. you take care.
