My Mummy Heart | A Poem

mymummy heart poem by Ms Moem Ⓒ @msmoem http://www.msmoem.com

My Mummy Heart

I had a heart I thought was full of love.
And then I met you.
And it grew.

I had a hand that I didn’t know was empty
Until I felt yours in mine.
Such a precious time.

I didn’t know how fierce I could be
Until it came to protecting you.
My courage grew.

I thought I had seen everything the world has to offer
Until I looked at it with you.
I saw life anew.

I had a heart I thought was full of love
Until I met you
And my mummy heart grew.

My Mummy Heart is a short poem about motherhood by Ms Moem.

Our Weird And Wonderful Life | Wedding Poem

wedding poem - our weird and wonderful life - wedding poetry by Ms Moem

Our Weird And Wonderful Life

Other people wonder, but they cannot understand.
They don’t know how it feels when we hold each other’s hand.
They don’t know our in-jokes, nor what makes us tick,
But that doesn’t matter. Not one little bit.

Because this is just ours and it isn’t to share.
The only thing that matters is that both of us care
About this relationship and the way we are together;
Not out of obligation, but because it is a pleasure.

We have our peculiarities but they make us unique;
Our moments of craziness can be tender and sweet.
We’re all a little weird in our own special way
And we celebrate those oddities as we unite today.

So let’s keep on going and forge our own path,
Sharing every moment and making each other laugh.
We get to decide the shape of our love.
This is our chance and this is for us.

Our Weird And Wonderful Life is a poem by Ms Moem.

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.

Happy To Be Us

Today, as we both say I do
I give of me what I ask of you.
I promise to always do my bit
To secure our loving partnership.

As days are spent and years pass by
I promise I will always try.
I’ll never disregard your thoughts.
I’ll always give you my support.

I hope we’ll always feel connected
Heard and valued, loved and respected.
May we remain an equal pair.
May we both always genuinely care.

So, as we go forward, united as one
May we be content, optimistic & strong.
May we know compromise, commitment & trust
And may we be forever happy to be us.

A Poem – The Universe Got Your Back

the universe got your back - a poem by ms moem @msmoem

The Universe Got Your Back

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’m So Lucky | Wedding Poem

I'm So Lucky ~ wedding poem written by Ms Moem

I’m So Lucky

I’m so lucky to be in love
To have a willing hand to hold
To know that we’ll stand side by side
Until we’re grey and old

I’m so lucky I’ve met my match
To have found my missing link
To know you try to understand
The way I feel and think.

I’m so lucky to feel connected
Like you’re an extension of me
We share hopes and ambitions
Of how our lives should be.

I’m so lucky I am with you
And as we say ‘I do’
The luckiest thing of all
Is that you feel the same way too.

I’m So Lucky is a modern wedding poem by Ms Moem.
