Silent Soldier (New Poem, New Style)

Posted: December 18, 2013 in Poetry

So everyone, this poem is the result of a little experimentation I thought I’d do with a different style. I’m just putting this out to get some friendly criticism. No harsh words please, I just want to know whether it’s bad so I can scrap it, or if it’s good so I can keep it.
You there, please look here
I need you to see me now
Search the dark, cloudy skies
If you look hard enough
You’ll find my signal flare
When you see me, don’t pass me by
Please, please don’t pass by
For I am wounded, deeply wounded
Though you may not notice at first
Who am I, you wonder?
I am one with a broken heart
A tortured soul left for dead
By the world closing in around me
Please help me heal
Will you heed my cries?
These words are my SOS
Please act before it’s too late
Before my fire dies out
Who am I, you ask?
I am but a silent soldier
Fighting the war of emotions
From deep within the soul
I fight to keep the flame alive
The flame flickering within my heart
A flame that’s so close to burning out
Though the war will never truly end
Comfort me, please, my friend
This battle has raged for far too long
Can you set me free?

Rain Shadow (New Poem by Me!)

Posted: October 3, 2013 in Poetry

[rain shadow- a region having little rainfall because it is sheltered from prevailing rain- bearing winds by a range of hills.]

I recall a time every face I saw was warm

Then, so suddenly, I got caught in a storm

I became a drifter, always an empty look on my face

I did nothing but let the wind carry me from place to place

It seemed it would stay like this the rest of my life

Trapped inside a raging whirlwind of strife

Then out of the darkness, there came a light

One of many great things, for it shined so bright

So then I was set free, finally let out

I’ve found my true purpose, without a doubt

I could finally see, after feeling so blind

All the friends I’ve made are so caring and kind

Though they do tend to get a little crazy at times

We have lots of fun, so I don’t really mind

I’m now surrounded with all these feelings I can’t hide

No, I couldn’t tuck these away if I tried

I can’t deny all these feelings of happiness and love

That make me stare deep into the blue sky above

I see now with these friends, I’m never truly alone

As long I always have them as my rain shadow

Why My Heart Beats

Posted: May 15, 2013 in Poetry

Alright, I’ve come up with a new, special type of poem that I just wrote, and I hope you guys like it.

My Heart Beats For…

My heart beats for me; My heart beats for you

My heart beats for good; My heart beats for truth

My heart beats for life; My heart beats for love

My heart beats for health; My heart beats for the sky above

My heart beats for laughter; My heart beats for my friends

My heart beats for family; My heart beats ’til the very end

In the end I will not die alone.

What Matters Most (My Contest Poem)

Posted: April 5, 2013 in Poetry

OK, I know I said in a few hours, but I didn’t think it would be 24. Sorry about that. Anyway, here it is.

For the longest time I had been searching

For answers as to why I’d been hurting

I never thought I’d find my way

For I was so long lost in the fray

I needed to find somewhere to belong

Something to hold onto to make me strong

Now I’ve finally found what I’ve been searching for

I’m feeling happier than ever before

This thing I found was not a material object

It’s something so much more, that I’d do anything to protect

It’s something from the heart, to hold close on through the hardships

One of the strongest forces in the world, something called friendship

I became apart of something, I am no longer on my own

I’ve changed a lot from how I was, and over time, it’s shown

I’ve become a better person from my experiences long ago

I often wondered the meaning of life, but now I know

In the end, it matters not how long a life we live

What matters is the things we do, how much we are willing to give

So until the day comes where I draw my last breath

I’ll live my days to the fullest, having no fear of death

The Archer’s Bow (My poem!!!)

Posted: February 16, 2013 in Archery, Poetry

The archer and his bow
Are always two of a kind
Like the bow is alive
They share a synced mind

The archer and his bow
Cannot be torn apart
For shot after shot
They share the same heart

The archer and his bow
Never cease to amaze
They are together
Throughout all days

The archer and his bow
Without each other, are nothing
But when brought together
They are quite something

The archer and his bow
Take aim and let the arrow fly
It hits, fast as lightning
Perfect bulls-eye

The archer and his bow
Celebrate victory
The greatest of all
The archers in history

The archer and his bow
Always achieve glory
Though this is the end
Of their epic story
