Poems About Life Page 2


Life Is
by Mother Teresa


Life is an opportunity, avail it.
Life is a beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is costly, care for it.
Life is a wealth, keep it.
Life is love, enjoy it.
Life is mystery, know it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, brace it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is life, save it!
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.


See each day we are given is a gift, And to waste it would be very wrong.
Giving Our Best
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

Every day that we are alive,
We should be asking ourselves whether we,
Are we giving our best to each day,
This is something we may not all see.

See each day we are given is a gift,
And to waste it would be very wrong.
But our lives are just that,
Ours to do with and hope our life's long.

But that's just it, our lives may not be long,
And come to an end before we are ready.
Don't be that person, who
regrets,
Live your life full and steady.

Close your eyes and go to sleep,
Knowing you've conquer your day.
You're >life will be
successful,
And you'll be happy to look back when you're gray.



Start Where You Stand
Poet: Berton Braley

Start where you stand and never mind the past,
The past won't help you in beginning new,
If you have left it all behind at last
Why, that's enough, you're done with it, you're through;
This is another chapter in the book,
This is another race that you have planned,
Don't give the vanished days a backward look,
Start where you stand.

The world won't care about your old defeats
If you can start anew and win success;
The future is your
time, and time is fleet
And there is much of work and strain and stress;
Forget the buried woes and dead despairs,
Here is a brand-new trial right at hand,
The
future is for him who does and dares,
Start where you stand.

Old failures will not halt, old triumphs aid,
To-day's the thing, to-morrow soon will be;
Get in the fight and face it unafraid,
And leave the past to ancient history,
What has been, has been; yesterday is dead
And by it you are neither blessed> nor banned;
Take
courage, man, be brave and drive ahead,
Start where you stand.


Keep moving ahead!
Keep Moving
Poet: Wilhelmina Stitch

I scanned
wise words in a book to-day;
this was the message,
they seemed to say:
Keep moving ahead!

You can't stand still
unless you really are very ill;
for if you stop,
like an unwound clock,
you're bound to suffer a fearful shock,
for something will happen to give you a shake,
and say to your conscience, "Move on, awake."

Keep moving ahead, or your soul will die,
and beauty evade your heart and eye.
No matter at all that your pace be slow
so long as you upward, upward go,
into a finer atmosphere,
where ideals live and visions clear,
and Goodness and Truth have taken firm stand,
and folks to folks stretch a loving hand.

For this be the measure of our success,
the measure of all life's
happiness:
just how well we have moved ahead;
or just how early our soul was dead!


Comfort Zone
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

We all have a
comfort zone,
In which we all retreat.
When life get tough it's hard to not
Feel like you are beat.

So when you feel this time approaching,
And your comfort zones in view.
Stop and think about what you're feeling,
And see if what you're feeling is true.

It's good we all have a spot,
That makes us all feel good.
But sometimes we may use that spot,
When it's not necessary that we should.

So next time you feel the need,
To stay in your comfort zone.
See if all you really need,
Is some
confidence of your own.



The living things around will teach  And guide you on Life's way!
To Sunlit Days...
Poet: John McLeod 1982

To sunlit days and wandering hills
With skies that reach forever
Clear air and joy to cure all ills
And love that leaves you never
No matter where your footsteps reach
Throughout your every day
The living things around will teach
And guide you on Life's way!


My Creed
Poet: Edgar A. Guest

To live as gently as I can;
To be, no matter where, a man;
To take what comes of good or ill
And cling to
faith and honor still;
To do my best, and let that stand
The record of my brain and hand;
And then, should failure come to me,
Still work and
hope for victory.

To have no secret place wherein
I stoop unseen to shame or sin;
To be the same when I'm alone
As when my every deed is known
To live undaunted, unafraid
Of any step that I have made;
To be without pretense or sham
Exactly what men think I am.

To leave some simple mark behind
To keep my having lived in mind,
If enmity to aught I show,
To be an honest, generous foe,
To play my little part, nor whine
That greater honors are not mine.

This, I believe, is all I need
For my philosophy and creed.
