My Very First Poem

Through the Shadows

My Very First Poem
Weebly

Creating a poem is not easy, especially when you are doing it for the very first time. Poetry can be used to convey various messages such as encouragement, faith, love, even mystery. For me, I guess I was using the form of poetry to convey a message of strength. I was recently looking through my poetry book and came upon the first poem that I wrote. I wrote it two years ago, so it's really bad. I have since grown from then and now have so many amazing poems in my book. Here is the first poem that I ever wrote. I hope you get something out of it.


Through the Shadows

They have always told me

That I have never been good enough.

They have always told me

That I would not be able to do it.

For I have heard these things

And so much more

As I wander through the shadows.


What have you done

To benefit this world?

Have you lived a life worth living?

This present life knows not

Of my past mistakes

All this has been happening in my head

As I wander through the shadows.


Please, my dear friend

Don't think of it that way!

Your life is worth more than you know,

Please believe this as I pray!

The mistakes of your past

Are nothing now

For you are free and new.

Once again, you have found yourself

Wandering through the shadows.


Take a deep breathe, my love,

You are absolutely breathtaking.

Never will you cry alone....

No longer will you suffer

through the many trials of this world.

For God has caught you

To never let you go

Just when you needed Him

As you were falling through the shadows.


As you pick yourself up

From falling on the ground,

Just remember this one thing.

There will always be things

that will drag you down,

But let them have no sting!

You are loved!

You are beautiful!

You are worth way more than you know.

And when you feel

Your head drop low,

Don't forget that He is with you

As you wander through the shadows.
