Clear Skies and a Bright Future

by Keira Pickard   Dec 13, 2020


Promises aren't there to be rescinded,
Our hopes aren't florets on the wind.
Hearts shouldn't be mended just to be torn,
Minds are not made up to be worn.
Loyalty isn't there to change to another,
Emotions aren't there to harm each other.
Faults aren't present to be made clear,
We shouldn't hide feelings like sadness or fear.
And trust isn't shared to be forgotten,
Dreams aren't conjured up just to go rotten.
So do not trip the trap that so many do:
Above the clouds, there's innocence and blue.

    If Greta Thunberg was a poet instead of a young activist I'm certain, with poetry of this standard, you would give her some serious competition. Very Well written.

    Hello Kiera, I absolutely love the optimism within the title and I sure as hope that life keeps throwing you the clear skies and bright future too :)
    This poem is extremely true and I think alot of us 'oldies' (I speak for myself) can take something from this. An extremely powerful and perfectly written piece, well done and glad to see it nominated. Best wishes for the week ahead and a positive future. Em x

    I started writing at 15, and it was nothing near this.
    You’re doing such a great job, I like the soft rhyme and the rhyme in this.
    “ Dreams aren't conjured up just to go rotten.”

    This is my favorite line. Can’t wait to read more from you Keira!!
