Afraid To Try For What I Want

Poem By Alison Smith

Cant change what has gone before.
Do I want to change what is coming?
Is life just this constant battle?
When do we rest on our laurels?

Day by day I feel eroded
Nothing left to enjoy
Afraid to try for what I want
Not sure I can live for them

Head spins
Stomach upset
Joints ache
Hands shake
Feet swell
I cry

Maybe I should just die! ! !

I find getting what I want is through giving. The more I give the more I get. Your beautiful writing will solve your constant battle eventually.

Hear the thunder echoing about
A sky with a green hue
The sign of hail on the way
Lighting giving a great show

A Gift From Heaven

They were created with perfection
But arrived before well baked
Sent to show the way
Searchers of another day

Hello my darlings
Its time we sat for a chat
Its been such a long time
Since I looked at you

A Passionate Man

Met a man who interested me
He wrote great poetry you see
Said we'd meet and share some time
Maybe even have our bodies rhyme

Do You Know Who I Am?

Do you know who I am?
I am the dream you have not fulfilled
I am the nightmare you cant face
I am the speech you cant complete

Am I Jealous

I have feelings for you its true
Though we both agree
They will never be love
