Poem- Lover!

Hey! Any one here loves writing a poem?

Here is one of my poem.

 

The Reason to Write

 

Dear you,

I suppose this happen to everyone
Stumble and fall,
Desperation,
Loneliness.

People always try to be stronger,
To move on or to stay
They tend to do anything to
ease the pain.

What should I do?
I’m not a painter.
I can’t draw anything but a mess.

I’m not a musician.
I can’t sing nor play any instruments.

I’m just a poet.

So I just write.
I write because I want to.
I write because that’s the thing I can do.

And I write for a cause
not for applause.

I really like your poem Elisa, well done :)

 

I wrote this 4 months ago and they told me it's a poem O_o!! So I'll share it here:

 

If Only You Knew


If only you knew,

That life after you has changed a lot,

World economic crisis, smart phones and Arab spring...

A lot had happened,
Yet trust your daughter when she says:
You didn't miss a thing...

Why didn't you explain or mention, not even once,
That every day passed is better than any day that is yet to come...

Watching the news and wondering, what you would say,
If you knew that war, invasion, famine & killing are usual things these days...

You were wise and smart since the very beginning,
Dying peacefully has saved your heart from breaking...

If only you knew that you are safer now than any time when you were here,
I wonder if you would still choose to come back again and check on me...

If only you knew...

 

PS: I wrote it for my father.

Thank you. Ahh, I see. I want to read it, but I only learn Arabic to read Qur'an.

Your poem is beautiful. I wrote poems but in Arabic but I don't push myself. I just let it be natural and easy.

Elisa, your poem is really nice. I also write poems but on Serbian.

Comandante, good luck with writing on Arabic!

Mumtaz, you write really good. :)

Yeah Mumtaz, I asked you. I still did not read it because I have a lot of books to read for school, but I will read it in future. :)

Elisa, you know about my language, do you know about my country?
