You may have fun,
At the same time you may have to run.
Don’t think studying is a pressure,
It makes us to find our map of treasure.

Stick to it with a glue.

There are ups and downs,
You have to cross many towns.
Make your own rule,
Don’t make anyone fool.

Life is a race,
You have to chase.
You have to be bold,
To win the goal as gold

Life is like a sun rise,
Where you can win many prize.
Life has many challenges,
You have to be like avengers.

Poetry itself is a wonderful gift of talented and educated minds which bridges the humans and cultures living in such a vast earth. Writing poetry and the skill development is a good thing and reading these columns are a helpful solution which I likes to read and participate. The poets are members of the world community and naturally their woes and happiness they observe comes to the idea of creation of a poetry. Together with the close observation of nature, world problems, and such things comes to the mind for writing poetry. Anyway Poem hunter com.like platform gives lot of opportunity to read best of the poems from the poets of new generation as well as the great poets of the world which inspires the new poets to have certain improvement in their writings.

Out of control
We broke the chains that tied us whole
A fire inside us, it melts our words
Every secret has its own truth
The more we keep it, the more it shows
I'm not saying the words that are right
And you keep doing actions that you hate
The brain collides the beats of the heart
Though it will not pause, more it will not stop
Same question plays when we lie in our bed
Rather to eject it, we load more instead
We can't kill the living pictures in our head
Wake or sleep it stays as we live
But one thing pushes us to the wrong way
It keeps dividing us as we step
We want to look back but we're stiff necked
I have a thousand words to say
It's hard to let go all promises
Have to pretend you are gone and dead
Know you'll do the same thing as i did

I Am Tired of Being Afraid
In my heart remains
They’re all of left me
when I needed them most.
In the dark time
No one i couldn’t see;
There was no one with me
There is no one with me
There will no one with me.
No one; i guess i am sure.
I felt pain,
again and again.
I am tired
I am tired
I am tired of being afraid.

Another significant thing you must know and remember if you write poetry is meter. You need to know the basics of meter, which is based on syllables, emphasized and not emphasized. The basic building block is an " iamb" , a word that begins with a non emphasized and ends with an emphasized syllable, the beat reads: duh-DUH. Example: awake, abuse, afraid, etc..you can hear that duh-duh. I cannot go into depth here on all the acceptable forms of meter and substitutions. You must be aware of the beat of your lines, is it a-b beat or perhaps an a-b-b-c beat?In essence, you must study meter to master the craft!

People tend to just put the first word that comes to their mind in the poem. Never accept just any word, always search for the perfect word that best says what you want to say and at the same time one that will creates imagery and paint a picture in readers mind. Don't just put anything out there for readers to read, give them your best. Poetry is about the best words in their best order.
