Poetry: Words of the Soul




I recently entered a poetry competition at my school and I wanted to share my entries with you! Those people with chronic pain will understand exactly what I have written about, I am sure.

I am Kind and Unique
An ‘I am Poem’

I am kind and unique
I wonder what my future will be like
I hear a beautiful angel humming sweetly
I see the Eiffel Tower glowing in the night
I want to live an exciting life
I am kind and unique

I pretend I feel no pain
I feel sprinkles of hope in the air
I touch the stars in the night sky
I worry about my Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
I cry about the death of my very close bunny
I am kind and unique

I understand sympathy
I say be kind to one another
I dream about reaching out to people
I try to stand out
I hope I can have my normal life back
I am kind and unique

My Pain
A ‘Ballad Poem’

The nights are so cold,
My body feeling old,
I need to be safe,
So I go to my room,
As I assume,
That I am doomed.

People ask questions,
And give me suggestions,
But will never know what to do,
When I bite my lip,
And tighten my grip,
People wonder why.

I miss running around,
And jumping on the ground,
With nothing left to do but wait,
I have to work hard no matter the pain,
But there are always things I get to gain,
So my life is okay.

With things to do,
While I am one of the few,
Nothing can stop me now,
My mind is kept busy,
Which sometimes makes me dizzy,
But I just need to make things happen.breathe-in-experience-breathe-out-poetry-quote-1

  1. Your words in both poems reminded me of how some people like yourself have a huge heart which manages to turn frowns and pain upside down. I send you hugs and if I could I would send you Bob (of decidinglybob.WordPress.com) who delights in giving soft gentle licks and hugshugs.
    Oh almost forgot loved both but no. 2 wins.

    • Thank you massively mudpilewood! I am so so happy you like the poems. Lots of people like the second poem a bit more which is the same for me too, I am really glad you let me know what you thought about them. I am also really glad that I can turn some frowns and pain upside down, so hopefully everyone can feel a smidge bit better! Thanks again, have a fabulous day!
