Soul Of A Storm
She has the soul of a storm and the freedom of the wind.
She has eyes like the stars with moonshine within.
With the strength of the sea and lightning in her toes
She dances on the breeze of change wherever she goes.
Hotter than a volcano and deeper than the oceans
A whirling, swirling myriad of feelings & emotions.
She is daughter of the earth, primordially inspired.
She is water, she is wood. She is earth. She is fire!
Soul Of A Storm is a short poem by Ms Moem.
Big ideas are nothing
Unless you get some traction.
For that you need a wicked plan
And lots and lots of action.
Big Ideas is a short poem by Ms Moem.
When she stopped needing validation
And just focused on herself
She realised she should probably
Re-evaluate everything else.
Needless is a short poem by Ms Moem.
She was tired and frustrated
But her task was uncompleted
So she carried on going
As she wouldn’t be defeated.
Undefeated is a short poem about life by Ms Moem.
Brimful of aspiration,
Of energy and passion,
She decided she was worth it;
That’s when the magic happened.
Brimful Of Aspiration is a short poem by 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:
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.
Moving forward. Onward. Up.
Choose the way you see your cup.
Half depleted? Semi-full?
Grab the horns. Steer that bull.

Let Love Shout Loudest
Let love shout loudest.
Let it surround us and consume.
Let it lift the heaviest hearts.
Let it brighten the darkest room
And as love breeds into infinity,
Let it bask in sun and moon.
May love weather every storm that breaks,
Enduring through the gloom.
Let love fortify the aged.
Let us teach it to our young.
Let love unite generations
And be passed to those to come.
Let love not be legend.
Let it be the way we live.
Let love be the gift;
We are ALL hardwired to give.
Let love build our cities.
Let love be our law.
Let love be the answer
To all knocks at the door.
Love tenderly, wholeheartedly;
Let it float upon the breeze.
Let it ripple lakes and waterways
And rustle through the trees.
Let love permeate the soil.
Let love pave the streets.
Let love be a home for all.
Let love be our heart beat.
Love passionately, love purely,
With purpose, without condition.
When the world is blinded
Let love restore its vision.
Let love be the question and also the reply.
May love not be disheartened, no matter who may try.
Let love be a comfort for the broken and weak.
Let love be the language that every soul speaks.
Let love be the melody that our spirits sing.
Let us live love.
Let love be the thing.
Let Love Shout Loudest is poem by English poet, Ms Moem.
You make my world brighter.
You make my heart leap.
You make my tummy tingle.
You make me love deep.
You make my soul sparkle.
You make my toes curl.
You make my cheeks smile.
I made you my world.
You Make My World Brighter is a short poem by Ms Moem.
Family Is For Life
In life, there are few constants.
We face the ebb and flow.
People come and go.
But when you count your blessings
You’ll see, in joy and strife,
One thing you can rely on;
Family is for life!
