10 Mini Poems to Brighten Your Mind, and Your Life

Poetry heals on so many levels and for so many reasons. Here are some "mini poems" to brighten up your day. May you find sunshine where you're cold and moonlight where you're lost... light wherever you need it most.

“I always believed that whatever had to be written would somehow get itself written.” – Seamus Heaney

10 Mini Poems, Just Because Inspiration Feels So Good

1. Home

Home lives in a roomy space

Inside my heart.

I would say it is

Part of me, but I know that

It is me.

 

2. Strength

To be

Gentle it may be

Necessary,

First, to be

Strong.

 

3. Decisions

Love is sometimes the

Hardest

Decision, but it is

Always the

Highest

Calling.

 

4. Humbled

As soon as I bow to

Heartbreak

I feel honored too.

Because

You can lose

Your identity but

You can’t lose

Your truth.

 

5. Enough

To the soul

It is well

Even while the

Mind fights, the

Heart hides, and the

Body cries.

Somehow,

Somewhere—

Something remains.

 

6. Blessings

People “have it” better than me.

I have it better than some people.

I hurt more than some.

Some hurt more than me.

Some hurt just like me.

Some hurt differently than me.

I am rich and I am poor.

I am sad and I am happy.

I am grateful and I break.

I want to help and I need help.

I am not better.

I am not worse.

I am different.

I feel the intense union.

Can we hear each other?

Can we help each other?

Can we be blessings?

 

7. Purpose

We are

Proud because

It was

Hard.

 

8. Heart

If you could

Feel their

Heart

From the inside,

You might feel

Differently.

 

9. Seeds

Sometimes,

From scratch

Is the

Best

Place to start.

 

10. Freedom

Stop

Fighting for

Peace.

Release your imprisoned

Soul.

Only

Love will take you

Home.
