Untitled (Eager)


Eager to be in the wind, and to swim with no doubt.
Thoughts becoming perplexed, and never living in doubt.
Eager to be free, eager to see.

To fly beyond the sky’s seeking the entitling of times.
To cross the Serengeti in destitute times. “The mind”.
“Eternity”, to become eager with your mind.

Eager to show who I’ve become.
Eager to shine just as the sun.
Eager to win “we won”.
Eager to end we begun

Living life under the sun

Did you know the mind took time to grow, with eagerness it was created.
Struggling times, never allowing life to consume the mind, with eagerness we overcame.
So here we come, we overcame.

I thought of you last night, I thought of what you became
When I dreamed, I awoke calling your name,
The Fire in me, to love you forever.
No matter what, I chose to never give up.
I chose to shine bright, not just on you, “but everyone”.

Eagerness in the sun, soul, and mind, conquering destitute barriers inside your mind.

Red Roses, Blue Skies, and a Eager Mind.

    It’s good that even despite such hardship you’re eager to overcome it! This poem really shows how no matter what life throws at you, you can always manage to overcome it and come back stronger.

    We are born to love, and we are born to shine bright. Life is never smooth, and is always filled with obstacles. We all secretly have the strength and will, and confidence to do many good and great things in life. Sometimes we just need a little push from someone to make all those happen. And that we can shine bright, we can set our minds free, we can show the world what we are capable of. And we can live to love ourselves and others.

    Your poem radiates with a powerful sense of eagerness and determination. It speaks of a profound desire for freedom, self-discovery, and the relentless pursuit of overcoming life’s challenges. The imagery you use, from flying beyond the sky to crossing the Serengeti, symbolizes a boundless aspiration for exploration and breaking barriers.

    The connection between the mind’s growth and the strength derived from struggles is beautifully portrayed, highlighting the resilience of the human spirit. Your unwavering determination to love, shine, and never give up, not just for one person but for everyone, reflects a selfless and compassionate mindset.

    The mention of red roses, blue skies, and an eager mind adds a touch of vivid imagery, capturing the essence of hope, beauty, and intellectual curiosity. Your poem is an inspiring testament to the strength that comes from within and the eagerness to embrace life’s challenges with a positive and open heart. Thank you for sharing this heartfelt and uplifting piece.

    I love the details, metaphors, and similes you have used to describe your feelings. It gives the reader a better understanding of the meaning behind this poem. I love how you used the word eager over and over to show your excitement and dedication to better yourself.

    Seeing and living through barbed wire is difficult as shown in this piece of art. “No matter what I chose to never give up” living a different way with a routine and making the best of what you have is the only way to get through it. This poem really encourages others in the same position to see the sun through the clouds. The use of rhythm and rhyming really is great. I wish the writer used that throughout the whole poem. Overall, really good.

    Hello BA,
    Great poem! I think you did a great job here. The repetition of “eager to” in the third section was wonderful, and felt really powerful. I think the first two lines over the poem are a great way to open it. The first two lines are very very relatable as well. You did a great job with this piece, I hope to see more work of yours!

    It brilliantly conveys the electric energy of anticipation, and the joy that comes from embracing new experiences and opportunities with an open heart. It encourages us to relish the zest for life, inspiring us to welcome each day with eagerness and a keen sense of curiosity, knowing that the world is full of possibilities waiting to be explored.
