POETRY: Unfound Love, Profound Love

Unfound Love, Profound Love

In a land, far away,

A man searches long and wide,

Within the jungle and in the caves,

Seeking out his yet found wife.

 

Day and night thoughts are of her,

Like a shadow that never leaves,

Oh, why is there no cure?

A locked up jail that has no keys!

 

Unfound love,

Profound love,

A desire sent from above.

 

Searching high,

Searching low,

A desire sent from below.

 

In a land, quite near home,

A man searches all alone,

Within his mind and within his soul,

He continues to cherish just one goal.

POETRY: A Beautiful Balance

A Beautiful Balance

Let your passions drive you,

Let them fill you with fuel,

Let your loved ones guide you,

But, follow your own good will.

 

Be the person you desire to be,

Be all the positive parts you see,

Be uniquely different to me,

But, don’t force difference too eagerly.

 

Learn from other peoples mistakes,

Learn from what they do and say,

Learn that it isn’t always too late,

But, make sure you give and not just take.

 

Teach others right from wrong,

Teach others to share in life’s song,

Teach others to respect differences,

But, be accepting and work on your weaknesses.

POETRY: Moments

Moments

I wish my eyes were a camera,

Capturing moments for all to see.

An instance of pure happiness,

Or of devastation and misery.

 

Those times of heightened emotion,

Whether they be good or bad.

To either make another feel better,

Or to help someone feel glad.

 

We all have struggles to overcome,

So sharing them can be an aid,

To those who feel quite alone,

Who feel somewhat afraid.

 

Then sometimes we just need to cheer them up,

Let them see the good in the world.

Oh, I wish my eyes were a camera,

To show we live on a pearl!

 

Life is precious, and the land is alive,

We need to work together to survive,

We should help each other to see the light,

To say ‘yes’ instead of ‘I might’.

PERSONAL POST: The Appreciation of a Writer

Hi fellow Writing and Education Enthusiasts!

It has been quite awhile, I must say, since I have published a post that is not a Poetry or Prose piece. With this realisation in mind, I decided to make this post as another warm THANK-YOU to all those who have chosen to follow my journey as a writer.

One of the commonly occurring phrases is ‘Thank-you for caring about what others have to say’. To this I respond with, are we not all common human beings? Do we not all have some form of heartache, struggle, passion, strength and love? In a world forever changing, with each having a life of decisions and obstacles, why not band together and aid each others growth as successful beings? Indeed, I hope you all feel that my site is a space for sharing ideas and respecting opinions.

Do any of you have a theme request for a poem, prose or different written form? Perhaps you even request advice or aid? Feel free to express your thoughts.

Sincerely Jody

SOCIAL SECTION: Do you have a dream?

A big hello to those who care to share your time with me,

Throughout my childhood, teenage years and up to now, I have always been known as a “social butterfly”. I would continuously seek to be apart of collaborative groups, such as being in an Orchestra performing in front of hundreds of fans, being in a small alternative music band, doing art classes, helping with the running of various volunteering events and being apart of mentoring teams.

While studying at University, I also work a part-time retail job, and enjoy every second of it! Am I the only one who loves having extensive conversations with costumers? It is astonishing the discussions that arise, when you take the time to really show interest in their lives.

On that note, it is true, that I love hearing other peoples stories. Thus, I decided to publish this social post, in order to get to know all of you. How are you? Do you have a growing passion for writing, educating, learning, or something else? What are your goals in life? How many goals have you already ticked off your list?

I am always willing to hear your story, because that is what my site promotes, freedom of speech and support for all.

Sincerely Jody

PERSONAL POST: Developing Writer

Hi writing and education enthusiasts!

It had come to my attention that I had yet to publish a personal post about myself as a developing writer. So here is some background information about me and my passions!

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education, and am undergoing a Writing for Children and Young Adult course as one of my many valued courses that the University has available. This course gave me the extra push to finally start this site, and I am proud to announce that I am extremely excited, to build relationships with you all and share my progress as a writer and educator.

I have a novel in progress, a dream to start and write a non-fiction in future, numerous educational short stories in progress, song lyrics and music created, and I spoil myself with time set aside to create a range of poetry.

Do you sometimes find it hard to set aside time from your busy lifestyle to nurture your writing passion? Trust me, you are not the only one. However, it is important we never give up on this passion. I hope that this site will encourage you all to find the time, and I look forward to hearing from you all!

Sincerely Jody

~ Dream big, strive for more and never give up!

Take on the world, let your passions drive you to success!

Take on the world, let your passions drive you to success!

Do you have a desire to write, to learn or to educate other growing beings? Do you look over the vast ocean of rocky waves that is life and think, ‘I want to make a difference’? Good. Never let that passion go. Let it be your fuel as you take on any challenge life sets you.

I believe that we are all born with a natural desire to succeed in this forever changing world. As we grow this desire transforms into passions, and these passions are what drive us to succeed. Lets nurture these passions, and let the nature of writing, learning and sharing our knowledge through teaching take over.

We are social creatures of the world, so lets grow together and share our passion of writing and education!
