A Silly Poem for Kids

Here’s a little rhyming and silly poem for all you kids out there. Hopefully it’s silly enough. If not, then I’ll just need to increase my silly factor for the next one.

 

Fly

I just learned,
how to fly,
and explore the clouds
in the sky.

I must say,
it’s really cool,
I should try,
and fly to school.

Maybe I’ll fly,
to the moon,
and watch my favourite,
morning cartoon.

Which color should I
paint my plane?
I just hope,
it doesn’t rain.

I just realized,
this story is not real,
I was day dreaming,
in front of my meal.

Children possess the most amazing and limitless imaginations. I’m sure they can write a more silly and unique poem than I can. My 10 year old niece is a prime example. When I look at her role-play in her own little world, I can’t help thinking of myself doing the same when I was her age.

Kids are day dreaming machines, and I think that’s a great thing because day dreaming is like nutrients to their little brains. It expands their creativity, and teaches them how to think outside the box. Those skills will become vital for them later on in life when they’re expected to find solutions to countless problems for the companies they end up working for.

Personally, I’ve always been encouraged to be creative when I was a child. I must admit that my imagination was effectively developed during my youth. I’m convinced that playing with Lego until the age of 12 or 13 helped nurture my creativity.

I also think it’s important for us not only to allow our children to act silly, but also encourage them to do so. We just need to remember that they are still children, and we should let them be children.

Of course, I agree that all children require discipline and guidelines. But as long as we love them and teach them about the importance of respect, they’ll be fine.

Have fun sharing today’s silly poem with your kids, and remember to let be silly.

Mother-in-Law Birthday Poem

I’d like to dedicate the following mother-in-law birthday poem to Teresa, my truly amazing mother-in-law. She is a very special and loving lady that has one of the biggest hearts on the planet. I’m very fortunate for having her in my life.

If you’d like, you are free to share this poem with your mother-in-law. Best of luck!

Mother and Star

You’re a very fun lady,
to be around,
Always ready to dance,
at a blink of a sound.

Cheerful is exactly,
how I would define,
Your enthusiasm for life,
inspires mine.

Birthday wishes,
you’ve definitely earned,
Don’t you worry,
about the age that you’ve turned.

You’ve blessed so many,
with your beautiful soul,
Your heart feeds others,
it’s just like a bowl.

Today we celebrate,
your journey so far,
You shall always,
be our mother and star.

Honestly, I don’t want to brag. But I really am very fortunate for having a great mother-in-law like I do. She’s one of those people that will go out of her way to help (or cheer up) others.

She has lots of friends, since everyone enjoys her company, and they know that she is always willing to listen and offer advice.

She also doesn’t judge or stereotype others. That’s one of her many great qualities that I look up to and try to learn from. She also has an amazing passion for life and lives for the moment, with a huge smile on her face.

She’s one of those ladies that will say hello to strangers and is always friendly to everyone.

I know I’ve learned a lot from her over the years (which I am grateful).

I’d like to finish by saying, “Teresa, you are the most wonderful mother-in-law that I could have ever wished for, and I’d like to wish you a fantastic birthday, with plenty of health, happiness, and success.”

Love,
your son-in-law (martin)

A Goodnight Poem

Here’s a little goodnight poem that you may wish to share with children or even adults.

 

Sweet Dreams

You look tired,
you need some rest,
A good night’s sleep,
is often best.

I wish you a deep
and truly sweet dream,
With a waterfall,
and a gentle stream.

Comfy white pillow,
and your warm soft sheet,
Will feel like heaven,
it’s surely a treat.

Hope you sleep,
in total piece,
All your concerns,
your mind shall release.

In the morning,
when you wake,
You’ll be ready,
to dance and shake.

by anitapoems.com

 

A good night’s sleep is very important for us all, so that we may function properly during the day. It seems the average person is not getting enough sleep these days. I know that many of my friends and family only get about 4-6 hours each night.

Whenever I don’t get enough sleep, I notice that I’m like a zombie the next day. A good night’s sleep rejuvenates the body and mind, and we shouldn’t take it for granted. We’re not robots, we do need sleep, both quality and quantity.

7-8 hours is enough for me. Even though I prefer 8, I don’t always get that many. I just notice that I’m a million times much more effective at work when I do get my 8 hours. So when I hear stories about entrepreneurs that only sleeping 4 hours because they’re so busy, I just wonder about the effectiveness of their 18 hour workdays. I can probably do a better job in 8 or 10 hours, than they do during their 18 hour brain quenching marathons.

Now back to the goodnight poem. It’s meant to be a nice little gesture that you may want to read and share with a child or even someone much older. I actually plan on sharing it with my mom, because she’s one of those workaholic energizer bunnies, that just keeps on going and going. I hope it reminds her to get a good night’s sleep (she needs it and deserves it as well).

Football Poem

I’m a huge football fan, and enjoy playing it as well, so I naturally enjoyed writing this football poem. I used to play a lot more in university, but now I only get a chance to play once in a while. I’ll admit, these full contact pickup games are a tonne of fun. Just not sure how much longer my aging body will be able to handle the physical nature of the sport.

The following football poem is dedicated to all the gentlemen who will be participating in today’s 18th Annual Ellesmere Statton Turkey Bowl.

 

Beautiful Game

Manly creatures,
in the huddle gather,
Covered in blood,
and sweaty lather.

The quarterback,
leads the charge,
He’s protected,
by beasts of large.

Loyal spectators,
begin their chant,
Blessings and advice,
they yell and grant.

The creatures approach,
the line of battle,
From afar,
they look like cattle.

On their enemies mistakes,
they’ll gladly feast,
Anger and chaos,
is suddenly released.

The leader drops back,
and scans the field,
In search of the one,
who victory shall yield.

His pocket of protection,
on the verge of collapse,
Releases the pigskin,
while avoiding their traps.

Time suddenly stops,
many just stare,
Beautiful spiral,
sails through the air.

A perfect throw,
leads to a grab,
Avoids the defender,
with a skull crushing jab.

Visions of glory,
40 yards away,
Two more enemies,
he still needs to slay.

The first perishes,
due to his spin,
The second gets hit,
right through the chin.

20 more yards,
it’s all in the stride,
Blockers and defenders,
bodies collide.

He senses his enemies,
close ground as they approach,
Waving frantically and pointing to victory,
is the general and coach.

He dives for the endzone,
his last hope and resort,
With courage and heart,
he invaded their fort.

In just over five hours we’ll be kicking off our annual Turkey Bowl football game. We’re on a long winning streak, and my team needs to do everything we can continue that trend.

We’ll be playing against some younger guys who are in better shape than we are. But my team has a clear edge in the aggressiveness and trash talking department. We also bring a lot of heart onto that field. So it should be an exciting game.

 

Fall is here Poem

Fall arrived about two weeks ago, but I just realized yesterday that the leaves are beginning to change. The sight of this seasonal transition has inspired me to write the following poem about the arrival of fall.

 

Falling Blind

Early morning,
I wake up cold,
Darkness prevails,
like a knight that’s bold.

I put on my smile,
as I dress,
Autumn’s chill,
will depress.

Hours later,
the sun chooses to arrive,
My spirit agrees,
that we shall thrive.

Yet, I still look away,
I am blind,
Foolishly,
I’m self-confined.

My hunger wakes me,
right at noon,
I look outside,
and leave Ms. June

The splendid beauty,
I finally wake,
My blindness has been,
a true mistake.

Refreshing breezes,
the season brings,
Each rainbow leaf,
Dances and sings.

Trees no longer,
boring nor plain,
Nature’s actors,
in a playful domain.

Finally, I wake,
as I feel the chill,
My appreciation for autumn,
I blindly kill.

by anitapoems.com

 

I had a lot of fun writing this poem about autumn. It talks about how many of us feel towards the fall season. Most of us (including myself) don’t exactly appreciate the chilly breeze that we feel in the early morning.

We go to work or school, and blindly go about our day, without even taking a good look outside. At the beauty of this season.

Don’t get me wrong, there are moments where we do acknowledge autumn’s beauty. But it seems like these moments last until the next time we feel a chilly breeze against our backs or legs.

To me it just seems like there moments are very short-lived. I think we should strive to prolong them. One way of doing this is by going out to our local park and taking some pictures on a Sunday afternoon.

We’re planning to go this Friday (can’t wait). If you’d like to share some nice autumn pictures that you’ve taken, simply forward them to me, and I’ll do my best to post them up for all to see.

Asking for Forgiveness Poem

Today we will look at a forgiveness poem that may be used to ask someone for forgiveness. Sometimes it may be difficult to ask someone to forgive us. We may feel ashamed and guilty for our actions or words that hurt someone we care about.

Just remember, we all make mistakes, and when our mistakes hurt someone, we should always try to make it right. We may accomplish this through both our actions and words. Hopefully, this poem helps you with the words part.

 

Why and Why

I’m completely,
filled with guilt,
For the hurt,
that I have built.

I know you’re thinking,
but why and why?
Please forgive,
I hope you try.

I deserve,
all the blame,
I just feel,
so much shame.

I know my actions,
were not right,
I just don’t
wish to fight.

I know you’re thinking,
but why and why?
Please forgive me,
please don’t cry.

by anitapoems.com

 

We can’t change the past, but we are in control on how we react to issues or tense situations in the future. We just need to find it in our hearts to ask for forgiveness, by revealing our genuine guilt and humility.

I believe it’s important to ask for forgiveness as soon as we find out that we have done something wrong. Even if the person we have wronged hasn’t found out yet. They usually always do, so it’s better to be frank and upfront and ask for forgiveness right away.

If we do it that way, it will help us show that we care and feel guilty (and accept responsibility for our actions). However, if we stall and wait, we’ll just be making things worse.

For those reasons, I’m a big fan of confessing and asking for forgiveness ASAP. I hope the forgiveness poem helps.

A Poem About Me

Today I will write a poem about me. So what’s the easiest way to write a poem about oneself? I think you just have to speak from the heart. We all know ourselves better than anyone else does. I will try to be very honest and frank with this poem. I’ll try to look deep inside and include just as many personal deficiencies as good qualities. Good luck with your personal poem.

 

Me

To be thoughtful and kind,
I do constantly strive,
I’m definitely a fighter,
I’m here to survive.

Hungry for knowledge,
I call it – curious,
Strong personal views,
ashamed when I’m furious.

For not picking up
the phone,
I’m guilty
it’s known.

I’m trying hard,
to stop endless critique,
In front of large audiences,
I’m shy when I speak.

Only positive souls,
I wish to have around,
My purpose in life,
I know I have found.

That’s just a hint,
there’s much more about me,
My loving wife,
to my heart holds the key.

by anitapoems.com

 

I know that sometimes it may be difficult to talk or write certain details about oneself. However, at the end of the day, we are who we are, and there’s no point of hiding who we are. If there’s something that we don’t like about ourselves, we may always work on improving or changing, so that we may be happy with who we are.

Sure that’s easier said than done. But if we work on becoming or evolving into better individuals, than the world is truly our oyster.

I do believe in working on my negative qualities, but I’d never consider changing my personality or the person that I am.

We see it all the time, where one person tries to change someone (like in a relationship). We can’t allow others to force us to change and become a person that we are not. If we allow such a thing to happen, then we will be lying to ourselves, and living a fraudulent life. That’s why we need to spend our lives with individuals that accept us for who we are. This will ensure that we live happy and fulfilled lives.

I hope you enjoyed my poem about me. But more importantly, I hope it has inspired you to write one about yourself, and share it with others.

Best of luck,
Martin

A Poem About Happiness

Today’s poem is about happiness. But what does it mean to be happy?

Personally, I think it means being satisfied and grateful at the present moment. I’m grateful for having a supportive and loving family, a great job that I enjoy and also pays the bills, good health, freedom (to do as I wish, such as write poems for others and express my thoughts), opportunities, play, etc…

Enjoy and share this poem, and I wish you long-lasting and blissful happiness.

 

Search For Happiness

A masterpiece,
of art,
Is what happiness,
is to the heart.

It’s much more,
than a state of mind.
When we seek it,
we’re often blind.

Into the future or past,
we often search and stare,
Yet happiness sits,
next to our chair.

We must stop,
looking right through,
What it’s made of
we’ve always knew.

Originates,
deep inside,
To our very being,
it’s closely tied.

Let’s take a deep look,
and openly embrace,
Happiness
into our space.

by anitapoems.com

 

Being in a state of true happiness may vary quite a lot between different individuals. But the feelings and emotions that it ignites are very similar.

I think many of us may postpone being happy in the present, because we may believe that it will happen eventually in the future. But I think we need to keep in mind that our lives will always be filled with obstacles, challenges, and struggles. We just need to learn how to deal with them, and still maintain our happiness during the present.

You’re probably thinking, that’s much easier said than done. I’m not saying it’s easy. I just think we all need to embrace happiness as a way of life (no matter what happens). That type of philosophy will enrich our lives and our memories.

So how do we accomplish that? How do we embrace happiness as a way of life?

ATTITUDE!

With the right/positive attitude and outlook on life, nothing could ever get in our way. It comes down to learning to love life and being able to gracefully deal with whatever life throws at us. And if we don’t like something, we could always make decisions to change it.

Be happy, and enjoy life.

Inspirational Poem for Students

The reason I decided to write the following inspirational poem for students is because I’ve been one for a long time. So, I know how it is in grade school, high school, and university.

The routine that goes along with being a student may sometimes be demotivating. Well hopefully, this poem will inspire all those countless students out there.

 

Learn What You Love

Parents preach that
we must work hard when we learn.
It shall determine,
how much we do earn.

Sure making dough,
is liberating and great,
But if you love what you do,
your job you won’t hate.

I recommend,
that you follow your passions,
It’s not about trends,
or job market fashions.

The trick is to learn,
what you enjoy,
It won’t seem like work,
but rather a toy.

If you require,
a bit of direction,
Try different things
and make your selection.

Learn what you love,
feed your obsession.
In the end,
it will be your profession.

by anitapoems.com

 

I really enjoyed writing this poem because I do have a few opinions about inspiring students. I see it all the time, where parents try to direct their children to study and pursue professions that the parents recommend.

 

Parents may feel strongly about directing their children into certain fields because:

  • They want their child to end up in a high paying profession. This mentality may be motivated by the fact that many parents simply wish for their children to have a better life and be more successful financially than they were. Another reason may be socially motivated. Parents often seek bragging rights between friends and family, when their children are highly paid professionals such as doctors or lawyers.
  • Parents may also try to live through their children, and lead them to focus on something that they did not accomplish or weren’t able to become.

 

I think the most important thing for parents is to believe in their children and always encourage them to follow their passions (whatever those passions may be). Encouragement is magical in the sense that it will inspire anyone to excel at following their own dreams.

 

There’s two reasons why I strongly believe in allowing children the freedom to study what they enjoy and become whoever they wish:

  • They will be happy. It’s no secret that when someone loves what they are doing, they are happy. Just look in the mirror for this one.
  • They will do great. If a child is encouraged and allowed to follow his or her dreams, this child has a great chance at becoming a true expert and valuable authority in their field of study. So if my daughter comes to me one day and tells me that she wants to go to culinary school because she loves to cook and enjoys making others happy. I will definitely support her decision and passion 100%. In addition, I will encourage her, and that will further inspire her and she’ll become a great chef.

 

I hope this inspirational poem for students reaches those that need some advice.

And remember, “Learn What You Love!”

Funny Wedding Poem

Today’s featured poem is a funny wedding poem. It was requested by my mom, who will be attending her friend’s daughter’s wedding next weekend.

I know that most wedding poems are sentimental in nature. But this one is meant to be funny, and that’s one of the main reasons I had so much fun writing it.

 

Coffee with Cream

Today is the day,
your freedom is for sale,
Don’t argue with her,
she’ll always prevail.

There’s no need to stress,
about the toilet seat,
If you want something done,
just tease him with meat.

You’re probably thinking,
where are the wishes?
The question is –
who’ll do the dishes?

The beautiful sound,
of wedding bells,
She has control,
beware of her spells.

Marriage requires,
unselfishly serve,
Time for each other,
you gotta reserve.

Enjoy your exciting,
honeymoon,
In time you’ll master,
the art of the spoon.

You both make,
a very cool team.
You go together,
like coffee with cream.

Did you think it was funny? Can you see yourself sharing it inside your next wedding greeting card?

I’m going to email it to my mom, and I hope she likes it. I can see her greeting card standing out from the rest because of it.

I remember reading our wedding cards several years ago, the day after our wedding. Most of them were very nice, but similar at the same time. The ones that did stand out or were a bit more memorable were the ones that had a little bit more written inside.

One of Anita’s cousins included a very cute wedding poem inside her card. She personalized it for us, and we both loved it.

That’s the goal behind this poem. So feel free to share it with the bride and groom on their wedding day.

Hope it helps your wedding card stand out.
