There’s a myriad of voices
That are swirling in your mind,
Judging all your choices,
Questioning how you spend your time
And while society conditions us
To live a certain way,
The world is not that black & white;
There are many shades of grey.
You can have a go at anything
If you set your mind to it.
You don’t need to ask the cosmos;
Just decide, and then pursue it.
Though if you listen carefully
When you’re on the right track
You might hear the universe whisper
“Go get it! I got your back.”
The Universe Got Your Back is a short poem by English poet, Ms Moem.
I promise I’ll be there for you with each beat of my heart.
I promise I’ll be there for you in times both bright and dark.
I promise I’ll be there for you when you just want to talk.
I promise I’ll be there for you by your side as we walk.
I promise I’ll be there for you no matter where we are.
I promise I’ll be there for you. I swear it on the stars.
I promise I’ll be there for you, I promise, I am sure.
I promise that I love you and I shall forever more.

She set out with intention;
Thought she knew the way to go
But as she wandered clumsily
The winds of change did blow.
They took her like a feather
And she floated on their breeze
Soaring so far above the forest
She could barely see the trees.
At first, she was astounded
Just how far she went each day
But eventually she realised
She’d completely lost her way.
Lost is a short poem by English poet, Ms Moem.
“I don’t want to go” he said from his bed
“I’d rather stay home and eat ice cream instead.
I can’t stand the teachers and the kids are as bad
And that’s without mentioning their mums and their dads.
The dinners are nasty. They make me feel sick.
And there’s always some joker with a plethora of tricks.
The playground’s unfriendly and inhabited by bullies
And they pick on me daily, which is a bit of a worry;
They all call me names and say they’re going to hurt me.
Oh, and the toilets are smelly and also quite dirty.
I think that I’ve learned all I’ll ever know
And nobody likes me so I am not going to go.”
His wife rolled her eyes as she stood at the door.
“But darling, you’re headmaster. That’s what you’re paid for!”
A Poem About School ~ written by Ms Moem.
One day they’ll write our epilogue
and I want it to say
that this pair stuck together
for all of their days.
They loved one another;
they made a great team,
they shared hopes and goals
and went after their dreams.
They weathered the storms,
made hay in the sun,
saw family and friends
and always had fun
but above all I hope
that when it comes to it
if asked to repeat time
we’d be happy to do it.
