“Love My Life” – A Poem of Overcoming Struggles and Self-Actualization by Susan Dahr

I’m starting to love my life, starting to recognize my flaws, releasing those negative vibes, now believing I was not the cause. Constant obstacles in my way, blocking all my valuable visions, what I know for sure; it was always about competition. Pretending to be supportive, always watching with that critical eye, smiling and applauding...

“A Cold World” – A Poem of Life and Loneliness by Jevonte Lockhart

If I had the choice, I’d pause the moment, rewind the good times, fast forward the bad times, record the times I was at my prime, delete the moments where the spotlight wasn’t mine, then get a stopwatch to freeze time, then set a reminder to not lose her, get the timer and set it...

“Going Through Changes” – A Poem of Life by Jevonte Lockhart

Going through the same stuff, different day, oh well, what can I say?I guess it’s supposed to be this way, telling myself everything will be OK.It’s like I’m on instant replay, the world in my eyes seem black and gray.Just because I’m tough, doesn’t mean I can’t be broken, but life has spoken.In my mind...

“A True Friend” – A Poem of Friends, Loss and Love by Jevonte Lockhart

I wish I had a friend; not friends, but a true friend that’d be by my side until the end of time ends, someone I could pour my heart out and vent to, get my feelings hurt but then they say they didn’t mean to, then tell me my heart can’t be possibly split in...

“Soldier in Iraq” – A Poem of Life and Loss by Jevonte Lockhart

No need for applause, I just want you to pause, because this one is going towards a good cause, I sometimes sit here and think about how you put your life on the line, spine is scrunched up like a twine, emotions twisted like a vine, having to tell yourself “I’m fine”… you have to...
