A Collection of Poetry

my-america

America is a interesting place. It is the country I call home.

The United States has its good and bad times. I think we will eventually get through the corona pandemic. It may take some time and a lot of research to find a cure but we will one day get there.

I wanted to write a poem about America. There is no place quite as unique as the United States. I was born and raised in America. The poem below is a tribute to where I live and how I view my country.

America

A dynamic place rich in culture

The prosperous darling on

a hill

Naysayers, pot bangers, protesters

The politically driven minds of

change,

sometimes right and sometimes wrong

America

A nation of many faces

both white and black,

Asian and Hispanic

The multitude of races working hard to

climb the ladder of

success

My America

built on values and principles

A country of laws and customs

and

The music fierce and addictive

like crack to its user

America both

dark and bright

Yes, that's my America


Here is another poem I wrote about five years ago. It is about the bible. A book, I strongly value and believe in. It is my ode to the holy scriptures.

A Bible Verse

Sacred parables of wisdom

hidden in time and wonder

Here are few more of my poems that I wrote in my spare time. It ranges in tone and expression. I hope to inspire with my poetry.

Love Note

The pages of our lives turn like a

book newly read

Overtones mark its transition

even school boys can't write its ending

Untitled

Autumn sun battles

Grey nimbus clouds

As we drift into

tomorrow's battle cry

Happiness

A feeling that never lasts

leading to a road closed

as we count the past

as seconds gone by

too soon

Happiness

The Ocean

The waves indulated like exhausted lungs

Its darting movements primordial in nature

Rattling like warring drums

Jubilation fades like tans

above the rainy sky

Opportunity

When opportunity knocks

I will be standing at the door

waiting for an invitation to come in

and grab my chance at success

It will by my calling

when opportunity knocks

This is a great selection of your poetry. You are skilled at selecting the appropriate words to write economically, yet still convey a strong message.
