Motherhood Divine


The purest of joys
The fleeting of toys

The growing up years
Through laughter and tears

Nurturing of souls
Eternal love unfolds

Motherhood so divine
No barriers through time


Short Growing Up poem by Mark Hansen| Details |

It' s Time

Yes,
Indeed.
Growing up into the maturely,
I must.
If not,
What will  be lost?
Poetry?
"My fate?"
Like my artistic friend,
Possiblility,
Disappearing into the sunset,
Long forgotten?


Short Growing Up poem by Alex McKenna| Details |

Growing Up

Growing up
Isn't as easy as it seems

You don't just grow taller
Or wider

Your mind expands
You become mature

And you are handed
More demanding responsibilities

Growing up 
Isn't as easy as it seems


Short Growing Up poem by Anthony Dover| Details |

The darkest night of my life

I couldn't sleep as normal,
I was half asleep I knew something was bothering me,
Then i started to recall my childhood,
And there it was the iceberg,
7 child murders in my area while I was growing up.

A Fan Letter

My little grandson Noah,
You're growing up so fast
Seems yesterday you
Were a tiny babe
Time is rushing past.

Now you're almost one year old!
You're such a little man
With brains, looks, personality
And I'm your biggest fan.

Bellowed Words

Strive.
Succeed.
Do your best,
Is what people
taught me when I was
growing up.  Continue
your education after
high school.  Don't stop and never give
up.  I hear those words bellowing in
my ears.  That's why I have not given up.

spring rose

steadily, time goes
pushing us to the top
rising higher and higher

now i'm completely taken
growing up with your gang

ready to live longer
opening alone, no
satisfied by the lights
empracing the life we live

Short Growing Up poem by Luis Hernandez| Details |

Today by Myself

Today is the day that I find myself
what will I find within myself
been growing up all by myself
I wanna be left alone all by myself
I wanna find love all by myself
If there isn't a girl out there for myself
could I really live alone with myself?


Short Growing Up poem by Bozhidar Pangelov| Details |

I Feel at Ease

Like a nest on a little church
indented in the rocks.
The sky is low.
The twitch 
of the air flower-beds –
the passing angels.
And voices like gushing
streams; rivers before the sea.
The day is silent.
The body is growing up –
some birds are thronging.


Short Growing Up poem by Joshua Lacey| Details |

More than Conquerers

Life blasting past; too hard to see
Almost web of insanity!

Try to be human - don't conk my brain
Oooh - to just imagine the pain!

To be worrried about a scream
Rather have some ice-cream!

Growing up... not quite sure how
Pat my back and give God a bow!


Short Growing Up poem by Carrie Richards| Details |

Answered Prayers

.  
                    breath of morning rain...

                    a gentle benediction

                    over fields of wheat



Growing up in the country...
a farming community worries over lack of rainfall
....a blessing is a good year of rain...


Short Growing Up poem by Brian Strand| Details |

ERSTWHILE(naga-uta lyric form)

      Sitting here,I dream
Those Summer days of my youth,
       Life was slower then -
     Holidays,so full of sun
       Time, just drifted by,
Daylight lasting,oh so long -
       Days stretched into weeks
Carefree as we ventured forth
Growing up,was simpler then.


Short Growing Up poem by Cassandra Bray| Details |

Ashamed

I shy away with so many to blame,the childhood I had was so much pain,growing up wasn't easy,I wished some one would have freed me, at the time I was only a child but the people around me was so very wild,I'm all grown up now and it's a thing of the pass,but all I can say is I'm free at last,


Short Growing Up poem by John Trusty| Details |

GETTING BACK



Here’s to the young lad named TRUSTY,

back then the girls were quite BUSTY,

no wonder his thoughts were LUSTY.

Lately, that thinking’s getting DUSTY,

cause the joint(s) is/are getting RUSTY!

*For the Monorhyme contest using every rhyme I ever heard with my name growing up.


Short Growing Up poem by TOM GREEN| Details |

Can you see mee,

Someone's mother
 A wife
 Your sister
 My aunt
 Beaten abused..
 Battered an broken
 Blaming themselves
 In the shadows
 Feeling invisible
 Some are lost
 Scars are there
 Wings sprout ..
 They fly
 Can you see me?



 This is my view of growing up around women abused an violated.
 By TG Green


Short Growing Up poem by Carrie Richards| Details |

Salt of the Roads

From a homeland in Chile
Growing up with a song of despair
His humble beginnings, and a Chilean ode to serve
Born to be noble, prized with diplomacy's oath
Exiled he was, but never his words
And his verse fell to the soul
Like dew to the pasture....



Inspired by Raul's contest
"Pablo Neruda"


Short Growing Up poem by Nitesh Aggarwal| Details |

Secular State

A baby born in a secular state
Of parents belonging to different race
It will decide to what faith
It owes its allegiance and its prayers. 

A baby growing up in a secular state
Of parents belonging to different race
Unsure of its faith, unsure of its fate
In the end, he ends up falling from grace.


Short Growing Up poem by Donald Reith| Details |

NYC Games

Killer Diller 1 2 3

 Johnny Pump spraying on your feet

Skelly,s game played up and down the street 

lifting the Johny Pump water with an aluminum can

 Oh So Sweet!

 All these things were such a treat

Make growing up on 20th Street

 in Astoria 

seem so complete,

 All topped off with a Mr. Softees treat


Short Growing Up poem by Karin Edwards| Details |

Growing Up Too Fast

With the World of Opportunity
being so vast
The children today, are growing
up too fast
Choosing to be out all night partyin',
having a blast
Considering all of the Dangers, a dark
shadow it does cast
Remember when LIFE was so simple,
back in the Past?
Why is it that the "Age of Innocence"
doesn't seem to last?


Short Growing Up poem by Yolanda Jones| Details |

i remember

looking back when i was growing up
i can fondly remember the subtle breeze 
so fine and smooth
as a dandilion blowing underneath 
a weeping willow tree
i shall remember grasshoppers with one leg
i pleasantly smell the dampness 
of a butterflies cocoon under the porch
crab apples and then
it's spring again


Short Growing Up poem by laura Hew| Details |

2 worlds apart

Serenity
Of
Sadness
Weeping
Willow
I have sprung up from the roots
Facing the eastern half of the sun.
You
Great oak of the north
 Full of West coast pride
My
Crown
Of
My leafs
Suspend
The gravity of our 
Two worlds
Harsh reality
Growing up
To
Realize
The answers to life
And love
Are never easy


Short Growing Up poem by Sheryl Lynn Knoles| Details |

Dead-End Life

Pride in my body Wonder in my thoughts Living my life While the rest of the world rots Molding my life From my distant past Growing up and aging Entirely too fast Catching up with life Laid in riddles Musically requited By out-of-tune fiddles Sinister blockage Halting my life Dead-end silence Like a sharpened knife
