Ryan Lee Poems
Stop The Bullies
Stop the bullies from prowling around school. Tormenting kids just to be cool. Stand up for what is right. And keep these cowards far from sight.
You Will Rise Again
You’re down, but it won’t be for long. Because your will is great, and your faith is strong. Life is tough; you must take your shots. Your nerves get frazzled and your stomach in knots.
The Overwhelming Feeling Of Home
I used to feel the overwhelming feeling of home. The feeling you get from a place where you grew up. A place where you first did this and you first did that. A place where you seem to know everybody, everything,
A Teacher's Poem
The students before me will they finish school and go to college. Will they have the maturity or will they have the knowledge? Some act like they don’t care or is that the way it may seem.
She Lives On
She lives in the sound of church bells ringing on the hour and in the sound of blue jays chirping in the yard. She lives on.
N'Awlins State Of Mind
Saints on Sunday and a familiar buzz. Seeing familiar faces saying, “Where Y’at Cuz? Walking in the Quarter on a warm, spring day. The bands and the music and all the jazz that they play.
Autumn Saturday In South Bend
Oh how I love that golden dome; it gives me a feeling like I’m close to home. Game day arrives and the leaves are brown. Playing of the Victory March is a joyous sound.
Longing For School Days
I miss seeing students in the crowded hall. Longing for football games in the fall. Passion and enthusiasm to make an impact. Patience to keep my sanity intact.
In The Moment
Live in the moment and not in the past. Life is too short and it moves too fast. The future can be promising; but it can scare you to death So enjoy the present and take a deep breath.
Chalmette Monument Memories
A breath of fresh air and a walk in the park. An early evening stroll before it would get dark. A chance to gather my thoughts and get a peace of mind. For days that would get rough and not be too kind.
So excited to be vacation bound. Smell the salty, breeze off the sound. White sand beaches glaring bright. Waves crashing day and night.
Nostalgic feelings about this memorable ground. Neighbor’s voices were a welcome sound. Our family lived there for thirty years. A place of laughter and a few tears.
I worked there for many years; until it was destroyed by a storm. I felt the pain and cried the tears. Life now has a different norm.
A Spirit Never Dies
Death can cause grief and never ending cries. It takes a while for the pain to go away. But remember a spirit never dies.
You Will Rise Again
You’re down, but it won’t be for long.
Because your will is great, and your faith is strong.
Life is tough; you must take your shots.
Your nerves get frazzled and your stomach in knots.
There are times in your life when promise can be seen.
But then things can turn on a dime and not be too keen.
Fight the good fight and stay with the course.
Live life to the fullest without any remorse.
