Before I Die (Poem)


Before I die I want someone to love me back

Before I die I want to fix my heart’s crack

Before I die I want to make the world a better place

Before I die I want to share God’s grace

Before I die I want to be in love

Before I die I want to meet the one I dream of

Before I die I want to lose weight

Before I die I want to not hate myself for what I ate

Before I die I want to eat without guilt until I’m full

Before I die I want to feel beautiful

Before I die I want to grow tall

Before I die I want someone to catch me when I fall

Before I die I want to dance in the sand

Before I die I want to be in a band

Before I die I want to party with my friends in the rain

Before I die I want to get rid of my pain

Before I die I want to cuddle with my man

Before I die I want to have a road trip in a van

Before I die I want to overcome my fears

Before I die I want someone to wipe away all of my tears

Before I die I want to learn how to shoot a gun

Before I die I want to let loose and have fun

Before I die I want to have fun catching a ball

Before I die I want to stop feeling so small

Before I die I want to give a kiss

Before I die I want to experience bliss

Before I die I want to proudly wear a hat

Before I die I want to be loved by a cat

Before I die I want to run a mile

Before I die I want to make people smile

Before I die I want to play guitar

Before I die I want to travel afar

Before I die I want to go on a cruise

Before I die I want to sing the blues

Before I die I want to live with my friends

Before I die I want to make amends

Before I die I want to love how I look

Before I die I want to write my own book

Before I die I want to own a dog

Before I die I want to have romance in the fog

Before I die I want to name every cloud

Before I die I want to sing really loud

Before I die I want to be a size zero

Before I die I want to someone’s hero

Before I die I want to move out on my own

Before I die I want to stop feeling so alone

Before I die I want to learn how to say no

Before I die I want to play in the snow

Before I die I want to stand up for myself

Before I die I want to read every book on every shelf

Before I die I want to go somewhere

Before I die I want to fly in the air

Before I die I want to make someone feel better

Before I die I want to look cute in an oversized sweater

Before I die want to do a backflip

Before I die I want to dance and not trip

Before I die I want to stand on my hands

Before I die I want to actually have plans

Before I die I want to care for someone sick

Before I die I want to be someone’s first pick

Before I die I want to feel confident in shorts

Before I die I want to lay lots of sports

Before I die I want to run super fast

Before I die I want to have a friendship that will last

Before I die I want to grow my hair long

Before I die I want to right what I’ve done wrong

Before I die I want to sing in church every week

Before I die I want to stop feeling weak

Before I die I want to help those with needs

Before I die I want to do a thousand good deeds

Before I die I want to be free

Before I die I want to be happy just being me

Before I die I want to forgive

Before I die I want to live

 

 

Mirror


Looking in the mirror

Hating what I see

I don’t recognize my own face

Surely that’s not me

 

So I paint my face with lies

Covering up what’s inside

Hiding my face from the world

Pushing my feelings aside

 

Trying to make it one more day

Trying to escape my past

I try to hide it away

But it keeps coming back

 

Getting caught up in old ways

I’m stuck in my own sin

How can I escape it

When my sin comes from within?

 

I’m fighting every day

Deciding who I want to be

Struggling to find who I am

Should I let my past define me?

 

It really isn’t fair

This isn’t how I should be

I’m looking in the mirror

But not recognizing what I see

Circle of Hate Poem


Hate

What started everything

 

Hurt

Saying anything to make the hurting stop

 

Anger

Lips spewing lies

 

Guilt

Making my heart heavy

 

Sadness

Weighing me down

 

Shame

Hanging my head

 

Sorry

Asking for forgiveness

 

Regret

Unable to forget

 

Clinging

Never forgetting what happened

 

Hate

Hating myself

 

How can I expect to be forgiven,

if I can’t forgive myself?

Love


She hid in her closet

She hated to fight

Shaking like a leaf

She knew this wasn’t right

 

The yelling scared her

His angry face hurt

She felt so ashamed

She felt like dirt

 

The closet door opened

She looked up at his face

With tears in her eyes

He sat beside her with grace

 

He touched her chin,

Still wet with tears,

Her mascara was ruined

Leaving a trail of smears

 

He used his thumb

To brush them away

And with the gentlest voice

She heard him say

 

“I love you”

Sonnet


So today in school, we were assigned too write a sonnet. I thought that maybe it would be cool to post it on here! I hope that you guys like it!

 

It’s Him I love so much that I could cry

It makes me glad to know that He is mine

For me, He loved so much that He did die

And now I know for sure that I am thine

For Him, I live my life, for I am His

My life is not my own, He paid the price

I gave it all to Him that I may live,

He gave himself as the blood sacrifice

Oh beautiful father, how I love Thee

With Him I know I’ll live forever more

His mercy has saved me, it sets me free

Can’t wait ‘till I see what He has in store

Jesus, my savior, He’s what sets me free

Jesus, my Savior, He’s inside of me
