A beautiful life

A beautiful life

A Poem by Lane-roe

Do not cry, do not fear

Do not shed a single tear

For you were born and you are free

To smell, to hear, to feel, to see

 

You are here to feel it all

To feel the highs; the big, the small

To feel the crushing misery

That is part of you and part of me

 

You are here to see it all

To see the rushing waterfall

To see the sun’s white blinding light

To see what is beyond our sight

 

You are here to hear it all

To hear the suffering of those too small

To hear the birds chirp with delight

At the dawning of the light

 

You are here to do it all

To lift the ones who can but crawl

To inspire dreams and works of art

To create visions; to finish, to start.

 

Do not cry, do not fear

Do not shed a single tear

For you were born and you are free

To live and create history.

Genuine poetic work.
Enriched myself by reading this amazing piece.
The whole piece is a gem.
Still the last stanza seems stunning.

Do not shed a single tear

To live and create history."

6 stanzas AND you ended how you started!! Such a pretty piece. You might be the first one I read that I don't feel like I'm reading poetry. It feels like I am listening to you speak, and it comes out witty, unique, and lovely!! Your puncts are on and your lines are gorgeous. I love having fun with poems that just make sense and you can see that a heart's effort went into writing it, and not just a 5 minute piece thrown together!! Beautiful Lane. xoxo -Mark

last line of stanza five has one syllable too many... nice rhythm and flow... good speed.

you shouldn't feel silly when looking at other peoples poems at all. This is a great poem with a very uplifting message that could probably put hope in the heart of the most depressed and hopeless person. You should be proud of what you've created here. it's more than a poem, for the right person it could be as life saving piece of literature. Good job and i cant wait to hear more like this from you
