Other Poems

The Reason Is You-

The Reason Is You is a poem about a struggle of love. Pulling through a hard time with love. A reason to change the old ways, into a better way. Becoming a better person in the process of heartbreak.

Beauty Within-

A poem about beauty not just being an outside thing. Real beauty comes within. And the people willing to look past the outside beauty to the inner beauty are amazing people.

Trials Of Life-

A poem about how life is sometimes very hard. People should learn to love life and this poem explains that. Life can be a great thing to be apart of. God has our plan, all we have to do is submit to his will.

Seeking True Love

I think deep down we all seek love. A connection with someone on the deepest level is what we all truly want. Even the biggest player still wishes to feel the love that a couple of 50 years has. Sometimes it seems so hard because we rush through life without taking the time to look around at the beauty God has given us to view. As humans we always are wanting more, more money, more freedom, more love, and the list goes on. Take the time to notice the small things that can lead to something even bigger than you ever expected. Don't walk away on opportunities that arise in your life. Don't be afraid of talking to that guy/girl that caught your eye, because that girl/guy could be the love of a lifetime.

Appreciate what you have right now, and it will better open your heart for what's in store. If you have someone in your life now that treats you great and you know it, don't take that for granted. If you don't appreciate it now then you'll wish you would've when it's gone. We all have taken someones kindness for granted, eventually that person goes away and then we miss what we had. I bet reading this right now, a guy or girl, comes to your mind about how good that person treats you. Don't listen to your friends opinion about that person, listen to your heart and what it tells you.

Give out love and you will be loved, give out hate and you will be hated. It's so easy to forget that an act of kindness can spark someone's heart. Kindness is a love for mankind, because kindness shows you are humble and forgiving. In turn this will attract people to you that want that love. Don't give your love out to those who won't respect you for it. I'd rather spend 5 years waiting for love than 5 years giving love to someone that doesn't respect it. And lastly this is some advice for the girls reading, don't give out everything unless he's willing to give you everything.

Diamond In The Rough

You're a diamond in the rough

Full of beauty yet so tough


We came from two totally different places

We've both shed tears and went through many faces


Though we are from worlds apart

I believe you have stole my heart


You are so different from all the rest

You put my courage to the test


You've made me try things I never would've before

It makes me dream of what's in store


For you I can be anything you want me to be

If you stick with me you will see


For I am unlike any other guy

I will never cheat, I will never lie


You took your heart and tried to hide it

hide it away so no one could find it


But I am still unlike any guy and this you will learn

So show me where to go, show me where to turn

      You are wise beyond your years! Such beauty and depth is not often felt until years have made their imprint on our hearts.

      Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

      Love is such a powerful experience to take and to give. I like your article before the poem; the latter of which is beautifully penned. This has a big thumbs up from me!

      Great hub, beautiful poem. Would that everyone felt that way. People are so busy keeping up with the "Jones" that they forget they didn't even want what the Jone's have. I think it is wise to take your time and not to rush into anything permanent and I will add a drop of unsolocited advice. Don't restrict yourself to too many "rules" Sometimes you just have to let life happen. It can be pretty amazing! Thank you, up and awesome!

      Thanks for the comment Faith :) And thanks for sharing it with others as well, life is very short so there isn't a reason for being afraid. I'd have to date someone for at least 4 years before I'd think about marriage, and I'm sure I will find that special girl someday :) Again thanks for the comment, you always put a smile on my face with your comments :)

      Dearest Robert,

      Your writing just touches one's heart to the core. It is so full of His truths dear one. So very beautiful. You are so very wise for one so young, and I know I have said that before, but it is so true. You are right, "Don't be afraid," to tell that one how you really feel, as he/she may never know until the actual words are spoken from one's heart and mouth!!! When you know you have found the love of your life, due to the "connection," as this life here is oh so short, you better go ahead and "don't be afraid" to let that person know of your love before another comes along and he or she is gone forever.

      I am going to share this with my daughter, and with everyone else here too and all over!!!

      Your poetry just fills one's heart to the overflow. If you are not married yet, you soon will be if you are being true to your own words.

      God bless you and keep writing these gems. Voted Way Up to the Heavens.

      In His Love, Faith Reaper
