Poem 36 – Christmas


Christmas is a wonderful time of the year
Not only is it a good excuse for a beer
We get time off work and a chance to catch up
And loads of opportunities for a pint or a cup
Christmas is great for getting stuff done
Or simply relaxing and having some fun
You can meet with friends or spend quiet nights in
But don’t do anything that may cause you to sin
Christmas is a time to spend with friends and family
A time when by yourself you should rarely really be
You give and get some nice new things
And go to mass where everyone hopefully sings
Christmas is when we remember our deceased
But we will never forget them in the least
We look back at some great times gone bye
And look forward with a gleam in our eye

Poem 35 – It’s Great To Be Home


It’s Great to Be Home



It’s great to finally be home

Although I never really felt alone

I had such a good time away

But I was never there to stay


It’s great to see friends and family

But for my time abroad I’m not sorry

I learned and achieved so much

Made friends who will keep in touch


It’s great to see my home town

Although a few places have closed down

There are more new things to discover

By myself or with one another


It’s great to get back to sport

Join teams or run to the fort

Support local clubs and activities

I didn’t do much of this overseas


It’s great to settle down again

Maybe in future have some children

But now to focus on a job

It’s never ever good to rob


It’s great to finally be home

Although I have a tendency to roam

I’m definitely here for a while

I will enjoy my life with a smile

Poem 34 – Alone Time


Alone Time

Sometimes alone time is nice
You can wander about and do what you want
Go for a walk, cycle a bike
Or any particular type of jaunt
Alone time is great now and then
To sort your life and get things done
You can be productive or just chill out
But do what you want and have some fun
Alone time is good when you need to think
Sit in silence to ponder something
Make some notes or talk to yourself
And with no one around be sure to sing
Alone time is precious, use it well
Don’t complain about your own company
Change if you need to but make sure you are
Truly the best person that you can be

Poem 33 – Getting Over It

Getting Over It
When something hurts your feelings
If its out of you’re control
Try to just get past it
Don’t let it hurt your soul
When someone tells you lies
If it doesn’t effect you as such
Just move on with  life
Things don’t matter that much
When something really bothers you
If it affects you every day
Try your best to fix it
No matter what other people say
When someone betrays your trust
If its just not worth a fight
Try to forget about it
Just let it out of your sight

Poem 32 – Life



Life can be a battle
Life can be a beach
Life can be what you make it
Don’t let it out of your reach
Life can be a flood
Life can be a flower
Life can be how you like it
If you make sure to keep the power
Life can be a puncture
Life can be a petal
Life can be whatever you want
Any issues, be sure to settle
Life can be quite tough
Life can be very easy
Life can be how you want it
But don’t always be too busy

Poem 31 – The Beach


The Beach 

The beach is a lovely place to relax
You can go to chill out and have some fun
You can sit on the sand and read a book
Or just lie down and absorb some sun
The beach is a lovely place to go
You can paddle or swim in the sea
You can meet friends or go on your own
Or simply sit and enjoy the scenery
The beach is a lovely place to be
You can have a picnic or a BBQ
You can play in the sand or in the water
Or go for a walk like many people do
The beach is a lovely place for me
You can feel the breeze all around
You can watch people and the world go by
But be sure to listen to the wonderful sound!

Poem 30 – Poems



I write poems to express how I feel
They help me cope and with life to deal
They’re good to keep my mind occupied
When there’s no one around in whom to confide
I write poems about the most random things
About people places or various happenings
They come from many of my memories
And allow me to express myself in a way everyone sees
I write poems because I feel like it
Some people may just prefer to sit
But I like sharing what’s on my mind
And think to one another, we should be kind
I write poems sometimes I don’t know why
There’s no real reason, I’m not going to lie
I write down words that come to me
And then I’ve composed more poetry!
