Poem By Emily Angel

Welcome, my friend, to the world
Of sorrow
Strife is your way and life
Your school.
You’ll find two teachers
Both pain and love.
Pain will teach you forbearance
And love, selflessness
With the sweat of your face,
Must you live.
With sorrow must you
Pass your life
You will find no eternal life
Nor will your short life
Death is a bitter necessity
Dust thou art and to dust
Will thou return?
Strife is short and will last
Only as long as you live
But another life
You will have
The choice to live that in pain
Or eternal happiness
Is yours to make.
A sincere well-wisher

P.S. Towards the end, my friend,
You will realize that
The spelling of life is “S-T-R-I-F-E”
A combination of struggle
And life

Forgetting My Dream

A beautiful dream you are,
Yet I know not what to do.
My heart is in a tumult.
I die for an answer.

Never have I told myself
Life is but milk and roses.
I daren't dream

An Advice

Look into your hearts, O men,
And count the good things
You ever thought for your fellow beings.

I Love Him

How could this be?
What a sweet sensation can
All of this be?

Let Me Love You

You keep my light burning bright
Even in my darkest night.

You have me safe in your arms,


I'm drenched by the rain,
Yet I'm not cold.
For I'm freezing inside
Of my heart.
