Make It Through Each Day

This is a poem I wrote on March 29, 2011, and it's from the point of view of a speaker who leads a busy life and is trying to make it through life one day at a time.


Every day, I try to find a way
To make it through each and every day
I try to find a way to keep moving on
Even after each day is done


I'm so busy, there's just no time to sleep
I have a schedule I need to keep
And I just have no time to take it easy
There is no time left for just me

Luck's Going to Change

This is a poem I wrote on October 20, 2008. It's a poem that tries to offer hope to those who may feel something is wrong in their life.


This one's for the broken-hearted
This one's for the downtrodden
This one's for the confused
And this one's also for the lonely


Relationships never work out
And you're unlucky in love
But don't you give up hope
Because one day your luck's going to change


Life just seems to be going wrong
You've lost your home and your job
But don't you give up hope
Because one day your luck's going to change


Life seems to have no direction
You don't know which path to take
But don't you give up hope
Because one day your luck's going to change


It seems you don't have any friends
To lean on when things go wrong
But don't you give up hope
Because one day your luck's going to change


Don't give up hope -
One day your luck's going to change

Lost My Way

This is a poem I wrote on July 6, 2009. It's a poem about losing one's way, but in the end, finding which way to go.


Once upon a time, but not so long ago
The future seemed so bright
But then darkness came and blinded my sight
And I seemed to lose my way


Then, the darkness cleared and I could see again
But what has happened here?
I wandered far instead of staying near
It's now what I expected


Sometimes, things happen when you least expect them
Now I can see the light
What I thought was wrong was actually right
Now I'm not lost anymore

Lost And Confused

This is a poem I wrote on July 19, 2010, and it's from the point of view of someone who is confused about how their life is going.


Here I am, so lost and confused
And I have no idea what to do
Nothing is what I expect
And everything seems to be suspect


There's a peace that I can't seem to find
Has it turned out that I've lost my mind?
I just don't know where to go
If you have answers, please let me know

Loss Of Time

This is a poem I wrote on April 21, 2011, and it's from the point of view of a speaker who laments how much time they're losing in their life due to stress.


I want to know why time flies
And why it just passes by
Some days, I wish it would just hit the brakes
I think I've taken more than I can take


My life feels like a mess
It's thanks to all of this stress
I have to spend time playing catch up
For all of this time I have to make up

Looking Ahead to the Future

This is a poem I wrote on January 24, 2011, and it's a poem where the speaker has spent their life pondering about what the future holds for them.


I always wondered what it  was like to be old
Back when I was still young and bold
Now I'm getting older, and I'm starting to know
That time is starting to become my foe


Back then, the future seemed to be so far away
But now, the future's here to stay
Yet, I'm still wondering what the future will hold
Even though I know that I'm getting old

Long Overdue Vacation

This is a poem I wrote on July 26, 2010, and it's from the point of view of someone who is really in need of getting away for a vacation.


I've got a vacation that's long overdue
And I know I'm really in need of it, too
I just need a chance to get away
From all the stress and have some time to play


I can't believe how much work there's been lately
It's nearly driven me to insanity
But I know a break will soon be here
I can't wait for the good times to be near
