Scared to Say

1 Comment

London poet and artist Elle Smith has written this original poem to coincide with Valentine's Day as we are often Scared To Say what our true feelings are for someone. It is one thing to experience feelings inside for a love interest, but bearing them out loud means they become published. We all know that this sort of publication is probably the most cherished and heart-breaking at the same time!

Hopefully this original poem will help you to bear that lion heart and no longer be scared to say how you feel. Sometimes, it takes words like those of Elle Smith in poetry to encourage us to act:

Scared to Say


How do I tell you

about the way I feel?

I’m so scared to say

what.. you truly mean.


Does it show weakness

to reveal how I pray?

That you will be mine

at the end of the day.


Can affection and intimacy

explain what’s inside?

Each time rather than articulating,

I run away and hide.


Will the day ever come

when my lion heart I bear?

Instead of disappearing

I blurt out

the words

you need

to hear.

Relativity of the Strong

Relativity of the Strong is  a powerful and reflective piece of poetry which turns the theory of relativity upside down, as this original poem looks at moral standards and the importance of the strong in relation to other aspects of our lives. Elle Smith delivers a punch of the worth of those with tenacity and strength in our society for the greater good of humanity.

Invisible Footprint

It is often hard to imagine that our actions have consequences far-reaching than we imagine. Well, this contemporary original poem Invisible Footprint by creative Elle Smith, allows you to pause for a moment to think about the footprints we seemingly leave on the planet in terms of pollution, damage to the ecosystem, loss of endangered species and climate change. Hopefully, if we collectively pause to consider the consequences we will all interact with the planet in a more meaningful way.

A Right Time to Die

We are all familiar with the Benjamin Franklin quote:  “Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Well, we all must eventually succumb to death, and this original poem 'A Right Time To Die' by Elle Smith explores in a humorous piece of poetry a battle to remain alive whilst in the clutches of death.
