    Any help for a first poem would be appreciated.
    I have material but lack confidence and knowledge to construct.

    Thanks :)

    'My Time Now' Poem

    sit down son, nah I've only just begun

    move over now, nah I will not bow

    quiet should be thy voice, nah that will be by my choice

    keep your head held down, nah I will no longer frown

    do what you're told, nah I'm too bloody bold

    follow and do not lead, nah I'll fight unitl I bleed

    you're not worthy dave, nah I'm riding this wave

    the wave of life my lad? , yeah me living shall make you mad!

    'Like a Tree' Poem

    Like a leaf falling from a tree, trust the words of thee

    A tree that has been weaken, by the cold; it's alright to stand tall and be bold

    Each piece of bark, is its own personal scar; the branches will grow they will go far

    The lineage represented by numerous rings, again and again you shall sing

    A nest on a branch, place called home; no longer will this bird forever roam

    Sap flows like a river, the tree has tears; not to worry, ahead many good years

    This harsh endless life, has tested this tree; and still it stands strong, believe in me

    The wind shall blow, and this I know

    The rain will come, and make this tree frown; I will not let this tree be knocked down

    No more dead seasons, it all happens for a reason

    'The Beach' Poem

    A journey of a thousand footsteps....leads to one direction

    Each step leaving a rocky road behind....each step on a firm piece of sand

    Each step leading to that which is kind....each step allows the fallen to stand

    Each step leaving a rocky road behind....each step the soul is cleansed by the tide

    Each step leading to that which is kind....each step allows you to no longer hide

    Each step leaving a rocky road behind....each step being heated by the sun

    Each step leading to that which is kind....each step knowing your life of joy has just begun

    Each step leaving a rocky road behind....each step being powered by the wind

    Each step leading to that which is kind....each step forgiving all the sin

    Each step leaving a rocky road behind....each step allowing you to be at home

    Each step leading to that which is kind....each step you no longer need to roam

    Each step strengthens and brightens your light....each step allows this beauty to take flight

    Hello! Since this forum is on poetry writing, thought I'd engage you in a creative exercise of sorts. Read the line below and see where it takes you. Add on just one more line to it. I'll be collecting and compiling the lines for the next two days. Thanks!

      Perring through the narrow cracks on my dusty wooden floor. I see a creature moving before.
