    CHANGING THE WORLD

    changing the world
    is never an easy task

    because the minds of man never want to change
    but if you are crazy enough to try
    then others will be crazy eough to follow

    to change the world
    you dont have to be perfect
    all you need is an idea
    worth sharing and worth following

    to change the world
    your heart has to be into it
    you can`t half step what you do
    or everything will fall apart

    change, my friends
    is a great weapon
    one that everyman fears
    and some seek to avoid
    so beware that not everyone
    will change with you
    they are the lost ones

    to change the world
    you must be wise enough
    to hold your tongue
    and bear your arms

    to change the world
    you must be wise enough
    to speak of peace
    and surrender for your cause

    if you change the world in anyway
    you will be persecuted
    because man always fears
    anything he cant understand

    to change the world
    you need a foundation behind you
    that will encourage you to keep pushing the world
    when your broken and exausted

    to change the world
    your first step has to be yourself
    because you are the greatest catalyst for change
    and the greatest challenge to tradtion

    Hey guys, I'm a bit new to Poem Hunter and I would love it if anyone would read my poems. I would greatly appreciate feedback or constructive criticism. [They are pretty much the same thing but you get the idea.]

    Thank you!

      Your name is on my list of poets that I need to read. I will (given time) read ALL of your poems and comment on as many as I can. I give my word on that. Profanisaurus

    THE OATH – In a sea of the mind

    A lonely bud in a colourful setting,
    The world an unknown sea
    A view of lost-love
    And the old memories

    No one is to see
    The minds of me
    For I am the forgotten
    The forgotten memory

    A lonely bud in a beautiful world
    That has no longer the right to explore
    And we all take for granted
    That for us it’s an open door.

    These pieces of our lives
    Those are there for perfected growth
    We must take our responsibilities
    And to them we make the oath



    Rate it please x

    Hello Fellow hunters, hope you are all doing great, my latest poem is entitled GOOD MORNING!
    please enjoy, and dont forget to leave your personal comment on it...remember to rate it as well........thank you all.

    GOOD MORNING!

    When the night sweeps
    Away the last drop of darkness,
    And Aurora, with her cold wind,
    Gently wakes up from her sleep
    And with the help of the sun,
    Split light into every corners,
    It reminds the nursing mother
    Of the child who cried last night,
    It strikes the heart of the caring father
    Of the unfinished house at the site
    And alerts the poet of an unfinished verse
    Of a dirge, whose theme is nothing but death.
    But isn't it amazing,
    How our minds are occupied
    By varieties of dreams which are blazing
    In every nerve which must surely be achieved.
    To me, every morning brings a sad joy,
    And I know you want to know how,
    It sprinkles fresh hope to the boy
    While, slowly, it pushes me to my grave.
    As long as I am not ready to bow,
    Every morning, is surely a good morning!

    I would say that to write poetry is simple and complicate at the same time. The secret to succeed on it is just to keep going until your mind has jammed.....Or check this beautiful poem named 'THE POESY" By Zoila T. Flores

    Good Luck!

    From my thorough readings of some students here and there, I can say that some students are great poets and great poetess. Some students and teens need only to be encouraged and to be helped in different ways.

    Indeed, if adult hunters would pay much attention to teen hunters' poems, they would know that classical poets are abundant here. Goodmorning to all my fellow hunters, have you read my poem SOMEDAY TO COME?check it out, enjoy it, rate and comment on it as well. Thank you all.

      Sir, there are many adult members who do read poems written by teenagers. As I have not seen your name before, I have not read your poetry. I can assure you that at present I am reading up to 20 poe ... more
