Something I found in my Journal

Reading my old journal from High School again and I found 2 poems that I wrote. This one stuck out to me today. I originally named this poem “Love”, but I do not like it. So I will just leave it untitled. I also want to point out that I am amused that I managed to rhyme everything.

Love, something I never felt
I’m not the type of guy
who makes the girl’s heart melt
Yet, I wonder why

What must I do
What must I say
I have not a clue
Why must it be this way

I have much love to be shared
If I knew how
with someone who cared
like maybe a girl right now

Love is something to enjoy
Love is something to feel
not something to employ
or something to heel

The world is taught to hate
or to start war
they cannot see the gate
beyond the sky and more

beyond the gate are angels with wings
and things that will please us
the king of kings
a man named Jesus

He’ll teach us how to love
from the bottom of his heart
to up above
then we shall start

the era of love and peace
when I can finally love
and war will cease
and I will enjoy the up above

Wow…I was pretty naive. I think I just said that I will have to die in order to learn what love is. I am not so sure that is far fetched…lol. This is my second poem ever and I posted this to show the progress of my writing and my thought process. I was in catholic school so the reference about Jesus is not surprising to me…

I may just write a poem on love now that I have felt it…

  1. I occasionally come across old journals and notes stuck in books, from many years ago. I know I have kept them so I can see progress (or lack thereof) but it's always very surprising to me when I come across these little treasures.

    It's good to go back and see how we have moved along.
