A Poem by afra

Don't let your dreams fade 
Love can defeat hate 
Time is just a thief 
Steals happiness and leaves you in grief 
Live like you will die tomorrow 
So don't let yourself die in sorrows 
Forget what you have lost and learn to move on 
No one can break you as long as they know you are strong 
Learn from your mistakes 
But don't let them break you 
Just be real and pure 
So that no one can make you insecure 
Don't give a damn what other people say 
Cause you are beautiful in your own way 
Be the star of your own sky 
You are always a winner as long as you try 
Open your heart and free your soul 
And when the time comes hit your goal

Great job with metrica, I guess I can say without problems, that (at least for the people I know) you're the "queen of the couplets in WC", you just write them so naturally and superbly at the same time. The flow is amazing, and it doesn't hurt AT ALL watching you finally write a "good mood type" of poem !! You make such great works when you do it !!

The couplet form really suits you. This piece is incredible, and your use of vocabulary and rhyme is superb. Great writing I must say

This Is a very real poem straight from the heart. It's easy to read, on the surface almost too simple, but It's truly raw honesty as deep as life(which ppl can think Is more complicated than It really Is). You show alot of soul and talented poetic Insight here. A keeper no doubt. Hope to read/share more!. God bless friend -Brandon

These are great words comprising stellar advice in charming couplets. I admire your structure discipline. If I wander off the path of haiku, tanka or free verse, I sound stilted and insincere. This poem is not at all stilted, and the sincere truth shines through. Your couplets build in intensity until at the end, the reader is feeling the warmest of fuzzies: encouragement. These words banish gloom and loneliness; that's a great accomplishment for a poet.

Time - I think Jean Luc Picard said best what this is.

Picard: "Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. But I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment because they'll never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."

"Be the star of your own sky." This is lovely ! Minju, I think a single star in the sky would look rather lonely, and there is not a single star that can ever form a figure in the sky - you will always need friend stars to help you with that.

Please cherish all your time on this precious Sapphire Earth, Afra - and I believe you will most definitely - hit your goal. :)
