~My Poem~

Have you really ever looked at a butterfly?
The way it gracefully floats in the sky.

The joy it brings to any girl of any age.
Able to calm most any rage.

A butterfly is mostly known for its colorful wings.
Gold and black, red and grey, colors of kings.

So the next time you see a butterfly,
Make sure to watch it with and open mind.


My poetry is not that great hehe...

Cold as Winter flows,
the ice drain through my clothes,
as I search for heat,
I trip over concrete,
Opening my eyes to swarms of light,
Something white,something bright it is the moonlight,
As people walked pass with pity, i realised I was in a city!
Sorry I'm terrible at writing poems but i just wanted to give it a go!!!! =D

well, I'll give it a shot, but concider that I don't practice poetry, and also I am not very confident on my english vocabulary

there are times you give me life,
by my side standing by,
but there are other times
that nobody suffers your turture as I

when my goals I try to conquer
you come and make me suffer
and when I ask something in return,
your head don't even bother to turn


when my bones are cracked
and I had lost my track
by pitty you come back
and help me stand back

you give me heaven and hell,
and even now I stop to think
but your motives I can't tell

it's pretty long....well..i'm not that good either...

Wind…
Please heal my wound
Land…
Let me free
On the wide place you gifted with
Give me the sense of freedom
From the mind of hatred
The soul of evilness
And the cruelest heart

Me??
Just the place of one night stay
Before the day of night eye’s closed
Forever and there’s no return
Step by step
You walk on me
Feel by feel
You give to me
Show me you’re joyous
Hide from me your sadness

Why???
My sight holds me down
I kept thinking
The answer isn’t there
I pray so hard
Give me the sense of peacefulness
Let me run
My wound needs to heal
My heart need kindness
Let’s join our sense of secure
And we will be free
On this wide place we gifted with

Great job. Thanks for participating. =D

here is mine!^^

The very first time I saw you,
Was special how we met.
You took me by complete surprise.
I knew my heart was set.

As days flew by, we talked again,
But you never seemed to care.
I tried my best to help you out,
By a favor here, or a favor there.

Although I made a fast approach,
Our friendship grew and grew.
I realized how deep I cared,
But the feeling I felt was new.

In time I became attached to you.
From a hug, I wouldn't let go.
I soon saw how close we were,
And the feeling was good to know.

For you, I wrote sweet letters and songs.
You were on my mind all day.
The thought of sleeping was nowhere near,
Unless I knew you were okay.

It hit me then, what I was in -
A unique and precious love.
For the person I said was only mine,
Was an angel sent from above.

The minutes without you turned into days,
And the seconds with you flew fast.
I could only wish to see you more,
And make each moment last.

The times I spent with you,
Were what made my heart complete.
I knew one thing for sure,
Without you, my future was obsolete.

And now, we love just the same,
As it doubles day by day.
I stare deep into your precious eyes,
Yet I'm still speechless to what I should say.

With you, I'm in a whole new world.
You bring out the best in me.
It's hard to picture you not there,
When you taught me who to be.

Yes, the road ahead gets hard,
When things may only seem rough.
But because you and I try so much,
We'll stay strong and get by tough.

Though problems may lie ahead someday,
And either of us could be right;
I promise to always be by your side,
And I promise my heart, so hold it tight.

And so, each night, beside my bed,
When there's only bright stars to see;
I pray that we may never give up,
And will always remain you and me.
