An Inspired Poem: Sparks of Inspiration


Sparks of inspiration, they fly in the air

Tiny but mighty, they dance everywhere

Flickering, glowing, they catch our attention

A spark of an idea, a new invention

They come in different shapes and forms

A dream, a vision, a whisper, a storm

A sudden insight, a creative urge

A voice inside that's hard to purge

Igniting the spark, the fire within

The drive to create, to explore, to win

To follow the heart, to chase the dream

To make the impossible, a possible theme

Each person holds a…

An Inspired Poem: Every Day is A New Beginning


Every day is a new beginning,

A chance to start afresh.

To leave behind past mistakes,

And focus on what's next.

The sun rises in the morning,

A symbol of hope and light.

A new day dawns before us,

Full of promise and might.

The past is but a memory,

A story we've already told.

The future is unwritten,

A blank canvas to unfold.

With every breath we take,

We have the power to decide,

To live in the present moment,

And let our hearts guide.

Let go of fear and doubt,

Embrace the un…
