Stress

This is a poem I wrote on May 16, 2011, and it's from the point of view of someone who's going through a bit of stress in their life.


It's another day of growing pains
And another day to complain
Of having to deal with so much stress
I really could do with a lot less


Sometimes, it just makes me want to shout
Of what the stress is all about
I keep hoping better days are ahead
I hope it's before I go to bed

Stress And Frustration

This is a poem I wrote on October 11, 2010, and it's a poem where the speaker is trying to encourage someone who is stressed out to slow down and take it easy.


Stress and frustration seem to rule your life
And all you see in front of you is strife
Just slow down and take a deep breath
You don't need to worry yourself to death


Just be patient, and you will make it through
Because I have every faith in you
If you make it up to the bend
You will find that there is light at the end

Sorting Things Out

This is a poem I wrote on October 25, 2010, and it's from the point of view of a speaker who is trying to sort out fact from fiction after someone is filling their head with doubts.


Here I am, I'm all worn out
And you're filling my head with doubt
I'm trying hard not to listen to you this time
And to keep you from filling my mind


Right now, I just need some rest
But you're putting me to the test
And I just need to spend some time away from you
As I try to sort out what is true

Solitude

This is a poem I wrote on December 8, 2008, and it's about being alone and feeling like you're in solitude.


Here I stand, all alone
Encased in this sense of solitude
But it's not just empty where I stand
It's also empty in my soul
Feel the loneliness and emptiness closing in
And the dark, too
I must find a way out of this solitude
Before it swallows me up completely

Social Networking

This is a poem I wrote on May 24, 2010. It's a poem about trying to reconnect with people from your past through social media networking sites, and it was inspired by finding a high school classmate of mine who I never thought I'd ever see on social media.


We haven't had a chance to talk in years
So it was strange when I found you here
I could see on the screen how much your life had changed
I hope my sending you a friend request doesn't seem strange


Amazing what technology can do
To find those who meant something to you
You can try to rekindle friendships that were lost
And you just have to take the chance, no matter what the cost

So Tired

This is a poem I wrote on February 8, 2010. As you can probably guess from the title, I was feeling tired at the time I wrote it.


I wish that I could go to sleep
But I have hours I have to keep
In order to get my work done
I can't say that this is fun


How I long to lay in my bed
But I'm stuck having to work instead
I need to keep my eyes open
And work instead of mopin'

So Alone

This is a poem I wrote on October 5, 2009, and it's from the point of view of a speaker who feels alone while going through a rough time in their life.


Here I sit, so alone
Lost in my ruminations
And I may even have some hallucinations
As I think of a time long gone


Here I am, so alone
And I'm lost in my worries
I think I live my life in such a hurry
In order to block out the pain


Here I lay, so alone
I find that I start to weep
As I toss and turn, trying to get to sleep
The confusion keeps me awake


In the end, I'm alone
And I'm working hard to find
An end to this madness and some peace of mind
I want to find happier days
