30 Best Love Poems And Quotes By Instagram Poet Nayyirah Waheed

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Make your heart sing and your eyes water.

Nayyirah Waheed is an Instapoet who shares her insights and thoughts of the world through poetry she shares on Instagram. With over 460k followers, and more than 100 posts, she’s taking words to the next level and changing lives.

There is something to be said with a person who has a way with words, particularly poetry. Poetry has ways of touching the soul that make us quiver with delight, fear, or sadness.

Poetry is power, and a woman with a pen is a force to be reckoned with. 

One of these forces of nature is the healing power of poetry. Waheed, an African-American, infuses a raw simplicity into her works, that is deeply touching and insightful.


Every poem is fueled by complex human emotions yet written so minimalistically, making her works so touching.

Most of her works touch upon the topics of love, identity, feminism, and race. 

According to Jet Magazine, Waheed has been named one of the most famous poets on Instagram. Despite this, many aspects of her life are left a mystery to us because of the reclusive life she tends to lead.

She began writing at the age of eleven when her English teacher gave her a poetry assignment. Because most of her works are published through social media, she has a large following on sites like Tumblr and Instagram.


One thing is for sure though —she has a way with words that the literary world simply could not do without. She has revived this thing call poetry, making it live and breathe and, most importantly, love.

Waheed’s poems on love are some of her best works that have moved thousands, particularly your fellow YourTango staff members.

And since we are gurus in all things love and zodiac, we thought it was more than fitting to highlight the genius words of Waheed on love. 


1. “fresh”

“There are feelings you haven’t felt yet. give them time. they are almost here.”— Nayyirah Waheed 

I’m sure we all have been there. However, Waheed gives us an important lesson when love first wounds us: Just breathe.


2. “heal”

“In our own ways we break. it is okay to hold your heart outside your body for days. months. years. at a time.”— Nayyirah Waheed 

We are human, and we feel. And, sometimes those feelings can be messy! It’s okay to …

40 Quotes By Poet J. Iron Word That Remind You That You’re Worthy Of Love

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

I’m just going to come right out and say it: You are worth so much more than you’re willing to give yourself credit for

I know, it’s hard to build yourself up and actually mean it. To stand in front of the mirror every morning and repeat a positive affirmations and a mantra of self-love, or to put yourself first even when everyone else around you is asking for help. It’s hard.

But how come being nice to ourselves is so much harder than being mean? Why is it so much easier to list off all your weaknesses instead of appreciating your strengths?

We often convince ourselves — or are told at a young age — that we’re only whole when someone loves us. But that someone many believe has to be another person — it can never be ourselves. We think we need our “other half” to be complete and happy in life because, somehow, this other person is supposed to save us.


Having someone important in your life is, well, important, but that other person isn’t the only way to make you whole. You have to learn how to see strength and love within yourself before you can open your heart to others.

You probably already know what it feels like to try to make new friends, or work on making your relationship better when you’re not really feeling yourself. It’s like trying to walk in quicksand; your mind just won’t go there because you haven’t learned how to trust yourself yet.

Once you can see yourself as someone worthy of love and acceptance, then you will find the love you need in someone else – or more love for yourself.

Life gets hard, but finding your inspiration to make yourself believe just how awesome you are helps a LOT.

Take J. Iron Word’s poetry on Instagram. I think I was on his page for less than two minutes and I was already pumped about myself. He’s the poet you read when you’re feeling down in the dumps and need to remind yourself that life is going to be a bummer, but you don’t have to let it get you down.

He writes that sometimes, you need to fall apart to become whole again — kind of like the Japanese art of kintsugi when broken pottery is mended with gold.

His poems are like little love letters you …

Poems about Love – Woh Meri Thi

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Woh Meri Thi Yeh Batana Ajeeb Lagta Hai,
Ab Us Se Aankh Milana Ajeeb Lagta Hai.

Joh Zindagi Mein Kabhi Bhi Mera Ho Na Paaya,
Ab Us Ka Khwab Mein Aana Ajeeb Lagta Hai.

Bade Khuloos Se Dawat Toh Us Ne Bheji Hai,
Par Us Ki Mehfil Mein Jana Ajeeb Lagta Hai.

Tha Jis Ka Haath Hamesha Hamare Hathon Mein,
Ab Us Se Haath Milana Ajeeb Lagta Hai..…

25 Stunning Poems By Liz Newman Inspire You To Love With Everything You Have

Instagram Poet Liz Newman Love Quotes

You never realize how important your home is to you until you’ve grown up and gone on to bigger and better things. You might not even leave your hometown, but when looking back on all the work you’ve accomplished, it’s easy to realize that where you grew up made at least a small impact — whether it was a positive experience or a negative one.

For writer and Instagram poet Liz Newman, this is definitely true.

Growing up in a small town in Ohio might not seem like a big influence, but for her, home is important to who she is. And while she may not write about the Buckeye State, it’s still a part of her identity that she isn’t going to let go of any time soon.

A post shared by Liz Newman Writer (@liz_newman_writer) on Jan 15, 2018 at 7:01pm PST

 

Liz has always been drawn to words — be it poetry, song lyrics, or poems — and because of her love of words, she was able to fuel her passion for writing through places like her Instagram, Facebook, and now through her newly released book, Hope Between Heartbeats.

It also helped that she loved writing short stories and poems of her own when she was younger, which, as someone who started her own writing career later in life, I find inspiring in itself.

Just like home, the things you see and write and do every day can really have an impact on your future, whether you know it yet or not.

And Liz is the perfect example of that.


Reading (naturally) helped her fall in love with writing and words too, which would in turn be the start of a long-lived love affair. And as any writer knows, love affairs with words are so much more satisfying than love affairs with people (well, sometimes).

My point is, I feel like I understand where Liz is coming from; words are beautiful and inspiring and, like love affairs, they can pull you in and hook you for a long time.

Since she started writing, Liz has wanted to connect with and comfort people through her words, just like

Love Poem – Kuch Baatein

Love Poem – Kuch Baatein

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Kuch Baatein Hum Se Suna Karo,
Kuch Baatein Hum Se Kiya Karo,

Mujhe Dil Ki Baat Bata Do Tum,
Honth Na Apne Siya Karo,

Jo Baat Labon Tak Na Aaye,
Wo Aankhon Se Keh Diya Karo,

Kuch Baatein Kehna Mushkil Hai,
Tum Chehre Par padh Liya Karo,

Jab Tanha Tanha Hote Ho,
Aawaaz Mujhe Tum Diya Karo,

Har Dhadkan Mere Naam Karo,
Har Saans Mujho Diya Karo,

Jo Khushiyan Teri Chahat Hain,
Mere Daaman Se Chun Liya Karo..

कुछ बातें हम से सुना करो,
कुछ बातें हम से किया करो,

मुझे दिल की बात बता दो तुम,
होंठ ना अपने सिया करो,

जो बात लबों तक ना आए,
वो आँखों से कह दिया करो,

कुछ बातें कहना मुश्किल है,
तुम चेहरे पर पढ़ लिया करो,

जब तन्हा तन्हा होते हो,
आवाज़ मुझे तुम दिया करो,

हर धड़कन मेरे नाम करो,
हर साँस मुझो दिया करो,

जो खुशियाँ तेरी चाहत हैं,
मेरे दामन से चुन लिया करो..…

Dil Par Tera Saya Hindi kavita on Zindagi

Dil Par Tera Saya Hindi kavita on Zindagi

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Ye kaisa saya mere dil par hai chaya
Jise dekha bi nhi or mehsus hua bhi nhi

Ajeb sa naata jo tujhse jodna hai chaha
Rishta tuta bhi nhi or tu mila bhi nhi

Bedakhal bhi tujhe karu to karu kaise
Tera kabja bhi nhi or koi vaada bhi nhi

Zindagi tera bhi vishwas kaise karu
Tune kuch liya bhi nhi to diya bhi nhi

Guzar rahi hai zindagi meri kuch is trah
Manzil mili bhi nhi to rasta bacha bhi nhi..

ये कैसा साया मेरे दिल पर है छाया
जिसे देखा बी न्ही ओर महसूस हुआ भी न्ही

अजेब सा नाता जो तुझसे जोड़ना है चाहा
रिश्ता टूटा भी न्ही ओर तू मिला भी न्ही

बेदखल भी तुझे करू तो करू कैसे
तेरा कब्जा भी न्ही ओर कोई वादा भी न्ही

ज़िंदगी तेरा भी विश्वास कैसे करू
तूने कुछ लिया भी न्ही तो दिया भी न्ही

गुज़र रही है ज़िंदगी मेरी कुछ इस त्राह
मंज़िल मिली भी न्ही तो रास्ता बचा भी न्ही..…

Dard Bhari Sad Alone Boy Poetry

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

जो मिला मुसाफ़िर वो रास्ते बदल डाले
दो क़दम पे थी मंज़िल फ़ासले बदल डाले

आसमाँ को छूने की कूवतें जो रखता था
आज है वो बिखरा सा हौंसले बदल डाले

शान से मैं चलता था कोई शाह कि तरह
आ गया हूँ दर दर पे क़ाफ़िले बदल डाले

फूल बनके वो हमको दे गया चुभन इतनी
काँटों से है दोस्ती अब आसरे बदल डाले

इश्क़ ही ख़ुदा है सुन के थी आरज़ू आई
ख़ूब तुम ख़ुदा निकले वाक़िये बदल डाले..…
