Below are the all-time best Vera Prince poems as chosen by PoetrySoup members
True love is not about giving gifts,
love can never be measured with
True love is an unconditional feelings
that inspires, revives, and sometimes
hurts, you don't have reasons for loving
you just do.
True love is when two lost souls can unite
as one, sticking to each other for better
True love is when you find it without looking,
you just happen to be in the right place at
the right time, as the saying goes love is blind
so tell me how you found True love and you
cannot even see..
As i sit on my throne looking down
on my creation day after day, I am
not pleased with what i see. No one
to blame, but me.
As i looked down on on my people my
heart grieves, when i think of all the
trouble and stress, i brought on myself
It is me who created this evil nation.
As i lay on my throne, thinking of a way
to save my people, who is living down there
without a care, some of you have no fear
but, "beware" I will soon "declare"
Trinidad the land of my birth
it is the best place on earth
like every where we have problems
but by the grace of god one day we
will solve them, people of all races
are living here, you can see them walking
around without a fear, I have been to alot
of places some are good, some are bad,
many are very sad, that is why Trinidad
will always be the best place i ever had
so come to Trinidad and everyday you will be glad.
I am from the West Indies
where we always have frest
breeze coming from the cool
blue seas. I am from the West
Indies, where fruits are free you
can get lots to eat under
the mango tree.
I am from the West Indies where
people do not freeze, so if you like
you can come, you will have, so much fun.
In The West I NDIES.
A friend should be a person you can trust
always there for you in good times or bad
especially when you are sad or unhappy
A friend should be a person you can lean on
even when you are mean
A friend ought to be a friend even when
not in a good mood.
Why is he roaming the streets begging bread?
He used to have a good head. What did he do
Wrong he used to be healthy, wealthy, and strong,
All the girls were running him down, now he is
begging for money all over town.
He never helped a soul when his pocket was full
Of gold, he even turned his back on his family
Treating them like an enemy. Now he is depending
On them for help, before he did not care how they felt.
I hope he gets back on his feet, leave the life on the
I see a young mother, crying out for help,
maybe she is to blame, at a young age
she brought her mother shame.
I see a young mother begging on the streets
holding a baby as she sleeps
all she can do is weep
I see a young mother, trying to survive
to keep her and the child alive
going form door to door, sometimes
sleeping on the floor
"can she take anymore?
It only takes a minute to have a crush
on someone, one hour to like them,
a day to love them,
A life time to forget them, true love is not
how you forgave, but how you forget
lust can be temporary
love is everlasting
joining all of them
can make a winning
What is wrong with the human race?
Why can't we unite, why do we fight
whats this thing about who is white
who is black. whats all this fighting for
why can't we go in one door.
Iam a survivor! raising up two kids on my own, sometimes not knowing
where to turn. I had to be firm, in order to stay in control. as I
travelled distant lands doing all i can toiling with my hands,
sometimes far or near because i care.
I am a survivor! dealind with sickness that brought on weakness, had
to put all my feelings aside if i wanted to survive, it was not easy
I had to keep busy.
The kids are all grown, surviving on their own, helping me to survive
my sacrifice was not in vain, now i can gain, forget all the pain I am
enjoying my life again.
