Part 2 of Poems Shouldn't Gather Dust

A few short poems I found of mine, although I couldn't tell you when I wrote them all. "A Poet's View" is likely the oldest of these three poems probably dating back to 2003 or before.

-A Poet's View-

Let my soul bleed from its wound
So I may appreciate the Healing
Let my heart be torn apart
So I may Appreciate the mending
Let me feel the sorrow
So I may Appreciate the Joy
Let me feel the pain
So I know I am Alive
Let me Make Mistakes...
So I know that I am Human


How many times can a heart be broken
Before it's beyond repair?
How many blows must a person take
Before they no longer care?
How many times must my world shatter
Before I no longer rebuild
And how many times must it all go wrong
Before you break my will?

-Moving On-

I end one journey now
And thus begin another
One I thought for a while
I would share with you
But here I am alone
Ready to say good-bye
Ready at last, to let go
Finally ready to face the world…
Without you.

A great message in there. There are sites where they accept poems. You can surf the Net and post your poems there.

I wonder if you feel the same way after 10 years. Sometimes our views change, and the sentiment is no longer the same.
