Own The Sky Poem

Own The Sky poem by English Poet Ms Moem

Own The Sky – I wrote this poem back in 2014! Original post here: http://msmoem.com/2014/poetry-2/spread-your-wings/
I keep seeing it being shared, though it has sadly lost credit along the way. It’s bittersweet. Even so, it’s still pretty special to see people quoting it alongside their instagram pictures.

Incidentally, if you’d like to keep up with my poetry on instagram, come and find me @msmoem.

Here are a few examples of my poem out in the wild. Bonus points go to the few lovely souls who have indeed tagged me in which makes me happy:

Spread your wings – it's time fly. Take the leap and own the sky.✨ Having the ability to help women on their wellness journey's, as well as help entrepreneurs reach for their dreams has truly changed my life!💕Coaching has taught me to be kind and patient yet ambitious, to be resilient and determined yet positive, and to hustle and work hard yet be humble. Coaching has taught me to dream BIG, to believe in something much much bigger than me, and most importantly to believe in MYSELF. It truly is a beautiful thing when you come out of your shell and embrace who you are!❤️ Taking this leap has made all the difference in my life and it lights my soul on fire thinking about all the others who can experience this too!🔥If you feel like the Team LivingOutLoud mission in is line with your values and dreams, we should have a conversation! Let's see if this business can make as big of an impact for YOU as it has for me!✨#TEAMLIVINGOUTLOUD

It is so important if you see some words you like that someone else has taken the time to write, to remember to attribute the work to the author. You wouldn’t take a painting and claim to have created it yourself. Artforms like poetry are in the same category.

Without sounding all woe is me, it can be hard as a poet to find your place in the world to be heard. And that aside, it’s really just manners. I love it when people share my work, I really do. It is an absolute privilege. However when it is left uncredited or worse still, recreated and someone else has stuck their brand on it (yes, this has happened! and polite requests to add credit were ignored 🙁 ) it disconnects me from valuable feedback that I use to help better my craft.

Anyway, it is still extremely flattering to see my words travel so widely. And really, being read is more important than acclaim. Even if just one person appreciates your art, then that’s another strand to your rainbow!

I’m not anti-sharing, I’m really not. In fact I encourage. Just link a girl up, just sayin’! 🙂

Anyway, if you ever do want to share any of my poems, please do #hashtag or @at me @msmoem. You can find me on instagram, youtube, pinterest and facebook.

To sum up, sharing with credit = good, omitting or taking credit = bad.

And to end on a positive note…

Spread your wings and keep flying!

In a funny way, the words themselves have done exactly what I wrote. Out there owning the sky all by themselves. That’s a thought to leave me with a smile.

Watercolor Illustrated Poem Quote

Take the leap - own the sky - poem quote and watercolour illustration by Ms Moem, English Poet. @MsMoem

This quote is a snippet of a poem I wrote. I decided it might suit being jazzed up with a bit of illustration, and watercolour at that!

I’m still very much in beginner territory when it comes to watercolour painting, so I am quite pleased at how it has turned out. It has already inspired me to create more along the same line, so I hope they might be well-received.

There’s something terribly therapeutic about painting and I really enjoyed being creative in a different way, so along the same theme as the poem quote above, if there is something you want to do or try, take the leap and give it a whirl!

A Word Of Encouragement

I got a lovely email from a lady who wanted to know if I thought it was worth her while to publish some books she’d written and to try and make a go of making poetry her living.

I’m not really a careers advisor, so I decided that the best response would be a poem. Here it is! What do you think?

a word of encouragement - "follow your passion and see where it takes you. It's not following your dreams that eventually breaks you." So, follow your dreams - poem quote Ms Moem @msmoem

 

A Word Of Encouragement

 
When you’re down on your luck
And your life seems a mess,
But you’ve got a simmering urge
That you long to put to the test;
You can make it your focus
To see where it takes you.
It’s not following your dreams
That eventually breaks you.
I can’t tell you your fortune
Or how much you’ll make
Nor advise if this path
Is the right one to take
But if you never try
Then you won’t ever know.
Your future’s in your hands
So just give it a go!

Designed For Life ~ A Poem

designed for life by ms moem -a poem for inspiration and motivation

Designed For Life

Be your own inspiration!
When times seem bleak or tough,
When you’re looking for motivation
Or proof that you are enough.
You trust your individual components;
Your eyes, your fingers, your brain.
You know those parts do what they’re meant to do.
See your whole being as the same!
Know there is strength inside you.
Know with each beat of your heart
That you can do what you are meant to do;
All you have to do is start.

Designed For Life is a short poem written by Ms Moem.

Take A Moment

Take a moment -  poem written by Ms Moem

Take a moment
once in a while
pause to breathe
reflect and smile.
Think happy thoughts
and look around.
Feel the sun on your face,
your feet on the ground.
Count the stars.
Examine the sky.
Catch the rain.
Watch birds fly.
Make meaning from silence.
Let words lift your soul.
Explore every facet
of your wonderful whole.
Take a moment
to count your wins.
Smell the coffee.
Drink it in.

Take A Moment is a short poem written by Ms Moem.
