A Poem for Thought

Understanding: Embracing Being Poor

Experiencing something hard can bring understanding
Where your spirit can be truly tested
Being poor, hard to embrace notwithstanding

This condition mentally and physically demanding
Where stress did rise; however, was rested
Experiencing something hard can bring understanding

In struggling, life can leave you standing
Where understanding is then digested
Being poor, hard to embrace notwithstanding

The fact you made it through is outstanding
Where your knowledge was infested
Experiencing something hard can bring understanding

As this condition becomes longstanding
Where experience then is congested
Being poor, hard to embrace notwithstanding

Your life now you embrace expanding
Where your spirit was invested
Experiencing something hard can bring understanding
Being poor, hard to embrace notwithstanding

A Rhyme Form for The Season

This form is Acrostic. It spells out something diagonally on the left side of each line. This form is a bit of a challenge to create in a rhyming poem. More of a challenge is a Double Acrostic, where in addition to left side is the spelling out on the right side in sequence after the left side. Haven't tried this yet. But here an Acrostic Poem for the season. 



Happy Halloween

Horror has become the theme
A night that now is a fright
People dress to the extreme
Putting on a look to excite
Your senses break out in a scream

Humor in fright the theme this night
Aiming towards a treat the scheme
Looking a fright one just might
Locating your flashlight as a beam
Onto the house that's lit bright
Where the decorations reign supreme
Electing to venture out this night
Eerie, thou how Halloween may seem
Now happy with your treats, it's a delight

My Old Published Poem-2005

This poem of mine was published in 2005 in a literary poetry book; which, as of 2018 the organization  no longer exist or mutated into a larger organization/company. Here the poem and the accompanying  profile. Notice: My early poems did not rhyme much or not at all. I learned throughout my years of writing poems, that I love to write rhyming poems. But, content still exist.



Don't Eliminate Me!

Don't look at what I have been,
But what I am!
Don't hold me back because of my mistakes,
But let me excel because of my skills!
Don't look at my failures,
But look at my accomplishments!
Don't look at my past,
But look at my future!
Don't eliminate me because I'm not perfect,
Because neither are you!

Authors Profile: I wrote this poem as a reflection for all of us whom at some point in their lives had made a wrong choice; and that wrong choice changed our lives forever. My poem is a plead to everyone to remember our miscalculations when we see others who deserve a chance to recovery from their oversight.
