I am not a poet, but I enjoy trying out doing different things. The following two poems I wrote a while back, and deal with attitudes. This is an area where I need a lot of work personally. Perhaps some will feel uplifted by these thoughts. I know it helps me when I write them, so for what they are worth...


The Smiling Face

The smiling face, it says so much
It says, you’re happy, it makes you blush
It makes young hearts go all agush
The spontaneous smiling face

The smiling face, it hides so much
It hides your fears, and your mistrust
It hides your sorrows without fuss
The strained smiling face

The smiling face, is hard to keep
When thoughts and feelings run so deep
When pain and sorrow in your life seep
The tear stained smiling face

The smiling face, it’s up to you
You choose which face to smile through
So choose to smile each day anew
An honest, smiling face


A Great Life

Great lives are not defined by how blue one’s blood may be
For many of the bluest blood a real life never see

Great lives are not defined by the money you can make
For many lives that have great wealth leave problems in their wake

Great lives are not defined by the beauty of your face
For many a beautiful person lives a life that has no grace

Great lives are not defined by the clothing that you wear
For great lives can be found in those without a fashion flair

Great lives are not defined by the places you have been
For many who’ve gone round the world have lived a life of sin

Great lives are not defined by your power or your fame
For at some point in each man’s life these two will not remain

Great lives instead are known by the message that you give
A helping hand, a loving smile, the joyful life you live
Great lives are always known by one’s willingness to forgive

Patricia,

I love both of these; great food for thought. I hope you will write more, if not here, then on the Creative thread over yonder. These are wonderful. You go girl.


Every day is a 'new' day, full of opportunities, adventure and a chance to make your dreams come true ©

Like the quote from the movie Steel Magnolias, "Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion."

beware, though.....writing poetry is addictive!!! Big Grin

Thank you ladies for your nice remarks. I'm just a dabbler in the poetry area but I find it to be therapeutic. I had never tried it before but was inspired to try by some of the poetry in this Creative Forum! Smiler

Very nice work Patricia. I like them very much, as you extend yourself, and release.

We all do it with differences, but as we create, and give of ourselves, it is fulfilling. There is no right way, no wrong way, it is just our way.

Yanni had the hammer put down on him, at one point, and still does by many. How rude of other human beings to do so. If they do not 'get it' then move on to something that will, but do not slam another.

Anyway, I hope to see more from you, and the works are wonderful that you did. You go girl!

Much love,
Dara


Love Reflected In Love. How Simple. It encompasses all.
