Brevity and depth in poetry?

Today I typed ‘poetry’ into Google and clicked on the top search, and did so again a few times. Quite quickly I could see that what people want is short but deep poems about life. Says it all really. 

Personally, I’d like to only write short but deep poems about life, and I think I could be happy for a while reading only short but deep poems about life.  

I definitely could be happy reading ...

Hard

It is hard having faith

When you feel so much pain

It is hard to obey when you feel so betrayed

It is hard to smile and put on your pretty face

When your whole world has seems to have crumbled

But then that voice comes back to you and says , "Look how far you've come, look how strong you are!"

The voice tells you everything is going to be just fine

You breathe, close your eyes...

Smile


Many days I was in darkness
Many days I cried for help
Seeing no beauty in this world
I forgot what it felt like to smile and not feel pain
A simple act of kindness
Will you come here and slide with me?
A simple question
A simple task
Sliding down the slide made me smile
And feel the love of God

We Had a Big Argument Because of Continuing Problems Related to My Mental Illness and I Did Not Have Time to Take a Shower, I Love You and I am Sorry

I am itchy

My scalp is itchy

I cannot stand how itchy it is

I smell

My whole body smells

I cannot stand how smelly it is

I feel slimy

My feet and groin feel slimy

I cannot stand how slimy I feel

 

It is my fault

The whole situation is my fault

I cannot stand how this is my entire fault

I made you upset

I continue to make you upset

I cannot stand how I f...

Mid January

 

No one else can judge me

Only God who reads hearts

People have abused me

When I reach fake of the facts

 

If you believe you're the master

And you can judge and lead

Surely you lose the only factor

That keeps you faithful indeed

 

Leave me alone fair and simple

I have to forget tens of lies

You should break your false temple

Wake up please .. open your e...

April First

 


No more fools again on April 
It was last lies to believe 
Complicated!!, Why not simple? 
Take it easy, or should leave 

 

If someone forces to trust 
That one puts others in doubting 
When the truth appear very fast 
That one is afraid or hiding 

 

We should only pray to God 
God will keep hearts more faithful 
When the purity clean the blood 
Surely life will be more u...

The Land of the P's

I've been asking myself a question, lately 

About what it is that I want

Because when I look inside myself

I see no aspirations of fame

No want for success 

Instead I see the plates of food I fixed

The worn pages of books I've read

I see a bright day and tall clouds

The wind blowing the pollen 

The sunlight cutting through

I see trees gnarled and thick,  muddy paths

Against Wind

 

Make it easy. Do it simple.

Just pray for God, to bless.

Love colleagues, & friends.
 
Surely, you gain a higher success,


Do it now, don't delay it.

Do it again, day by day.

Get that job, reach the top.

Not impossible, just try.


Do advise, every friend.

Shiny future, comes at end.

Do your best. Now, get rid.

Of any weakness, at any wind.

Simply Says

 

Simple Girl, frankly, says: 
“Life is simple without lies”. 
Lies are always complicated, 
And TRUTH, surely, will rise. 

 

Simple Girl's heart is warm, 
And brain is normally calm. 
Thinks for her shiny future, 
Happily, without windy storm. 

 

Simple Girl believes in God. 
Says always a faithful word, 
And purely behaves in life, 
As human does always good.

A Recipe for Happiness

Find the darkness in your days,

and kill it in the silent nights,

then let others notice and say,

your shine has gone up to what heights.

 

Yet don't be done with what you have,

just spread your wings and jump to fly,

there's much you have done yesterday,

there's more you have to do tonight.

 

When you watch the tables turn,

and god takes test at every turn,

the...

Simple acts of disgrace

Life can be so simple,

just follow this rule.

don’t fall in love 

Without expecting to drool.
