Life can be hard

Life can be happy

You make your life your own

You lead your life as you make it

Sometimes life is dull

Sometimes you can't live life the way you would like to

Life is full of ups and downs

Life is short

Sometimes life could look bleak

Life is full of mistakes

Life can never be turned back

You only get one chance at life

People can make your life happy

People can make your life sad.”

Life is about sadness

Life is about happiness

Life is about pain

Life is about loss

Life is about smiling

Life is about crying

Life is about love

Life is about learning from your mistakes

Life is tears

Life is sorrow

I could go on and on and tell you all about life

But I'm not here to sort this out for you


Life is all about you and how you treat it

You criticize it...well, you're actually criticizing yourself

You like it, you hate it..well, its all up to you

Life is you so be careful how you describe it.”

The life of one is good

The life of one is bad

The life of one is glad

The life of one is sad

The life of one smiles

The life of one cries

The life of one see's the brightness of the sun

The life of one see's the dust rolling of their shoes

The life of one see's the beautiful of the night sky

The life of one see's the horror of darkness in the night

The life of one cares for others

The life of one acts like he don't know you

The life of one see's the birds singing throughout the day

The life of one see's the shallows of the underworld.”

Life’s a gift for you to send

Life’s a gift for God to end

Life’s a gift now you’re with me

Life’s a gift for all to see

Life’s a gift when love is true

Life’s a gift when times look blue

Life’s a gift a ray of sun

Life’s a gift though your head is held to a gun.”

Life ain't peaches and cream

Life ain't always calm

Life is tough

Times in life are real rough

Life ain't perfect neither are you

Life won't bring you what you want

Life ain't always tight

Even though things may sometimes feel right

Life brings you a mixture of problems

Right after one problem another one will occur

Because life don't work on your time

You will never shine

Life works on its own time

And at the end life's plan is divine.”

Take my hand, come closer

Hug me, lean on my shoulder

Trust me, close your eyes,

I’ll dry those tears away

Hush my precious, it’ll be alright

Open your eyes, look into mine

Heartache is just but part of it

Go on, the journey you must take

Leave the pain behind, walk the path

Explore, there is more to life

I am not going anywhere

Always run to me whenever

Count on it, I won’t forsake you,

I’ll be two steps behind you”

Short Poems About Life

If I can endure for this moment,

whatever is happening to me.

No matter how heavy my heart,

or how dark the moment may be.

Then darkness will fade into morning,

and with this dawn a new day, too.”

When I was a baby

You would hold me in your arms

I felt the love and tenderness

Keeping me safe from harm.

I would look up into your eyes

And all the love I would see

How did I get so lucky

You were the dad chosen for me.”

I don't think I ever told you,

how much I appreciate the things you do.

You have been there when I cried,

and always known when I've lied.

You taught me how to read and sing,

and punished me when I did the wrong thing.

You were there to tell me goodnight,

and always knew how to make things all right.”

I always sought advise from him

all throughout the years.

I depended on his every thought.

And it was always he

who wiped away my tears.

He taught me many things -

'To always speak from the heart'.

He always showed he loved and cared,

It him to always understand.

He never intentionally hurt me,

and for that

he has all my love.

He's the angel -

The angel sent from high above.”

There is a love down in my soul.

Where faith and trust I do hold.

Love that will stand forever more.

That's what brothers were made for.

Together we've been through a lot.

Caring not what others thought.

We stood tall and held our ground.

Foundation from our father kept us sound.

Now we've grown up and left the nest.

The love we share is still the best.

My brothers I do love you true

My thoughts often travel back to you.”

Many times in my life I have disappointed you,

and begun to stray.

But you have pointed me in the right direction,

and sent me on my way.

Many times in my life I've needed a helping hand,

and someone to pull me up.

It was you who gave that helping hand,

and always cheered me up.”

I look back on these years

To see how far I've come and grown,

I take a trip down memory lane,

And what I see has shown ...

That every step I've taken,

You have been there by my side ...

From infancy to adulthood,

We've stood the test of time.”

Famous Poems About Life

No idle gold -- since this fine sun, my friend,

Is no mean miser, but doth freely spend.

No precious stones -- since these green mornings show,

Without a charge, their pearls where'er I go.

No painted scenes -- since clouds can change their skies

A hundred times a day to please my eyes.

No headstrong wine -- since the spring

Into my eager ears will softly sing.

No surplus clothes -- since every simple beast

Can teach me to be happy with the least.”

What is this world? thy school, O misery!

Our only lesson is to learn to suffer.”

LOVE, thou sportive fickle boy,

Source of anguish, child of joy,

Ever wounding ever smiling,

Soothing still, and still beguiling;

What are all thy boasted treasures,

Tender sorrows, transient pleasures?

Anxious hopes, and jealous fears,


What is BEAUTY ? but a flow'r,

Blooming, fading in an hour;

Deck'd with brightest tints at morn,

At twilight with'ring on a thorn;

Like the gentle Rose of spring,

Chill'd by ev'ry zephyr's wing,

Ah! how soon its colour flies,

Blushes, trembles, falls, and dies.”

In the rapture of life and of living,

I lift up my head and rejoice,

And I thank the great Giver for giving

The soul of my gladness a voice.

In the glow of the glorious weather,

In the sweet-scented, sensuous air,

My burdens seem light as a feather –

They are nothing to bear.

Come out of the world – come above it –

Up over its crosses and graves,

Though the green earth is fair and I love it,

We must love it as masters, not slaves.

Come up where the dust never rises –

But only the perfume of flowers –

And your life shall be glad with surprises

Of beautiful hours.”

Lives of great men all remind us

We can make our lives sublime,

And, departing, leave behind us

Footprints on the sands of time;--

Footprints, that perhaps another,

Sailing o'er life's solemn main,

A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,

Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing,

With a heart for any occurrence;

Still achieving, still pursuing,

Learn to labor and to wait.”

Inspirational Poems About Life

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,

When funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.

When care is pressing you down a bit.

Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns

As every one of us sometimes learns.

And many a failure turns about

When he might have won had he stuck it out:

Don't give up though the pace seems slow -

You may succeed with another blow.

And you never can tell how close you are.

It may be near when it seems so far:

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit

It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.”

Often your tasks will be many,

And more than you think you can do.

Often the road will be rugged

And the hills insurmountable, too.

But always remember,

The hills ahead

Are never as steep as they seem,

And with Faith in your heart

Start upward

And climb 'til you reach your dream.

For nothing in life that is worthy

Is ever too hard to achieve

If you have the courage to try it,

And you have the faith to believe.

For faith is a force that is greater

Than knowledge or power or skill,

And many defeats turn to triumph

If you trust in God's wisdom and will.

For faith is a mover of mountains,

There's nothing that God cannot do,

So, start out today with faith in your heart,

And climb 'til your dream comes true!”

Everyone wants success, and yet they often

don't know when they have it.

For most, it is the maddening chase toward a better

way of life or more of something.

More fame, power, recognition, money, or material stuff. For some, it is the understanding of a loving partner, the love of their child, or the people that they can count on when life throws them a curve.

I am coming to believe that success is not more material wealth, but peace, happiness, contentment, and love.

Most of all love.

Real success is not to be sought after in the outer world, but discovered in your inner world. I am not condemning the stuff of life. We all need some of the things that life offers.

But we don't need as much as we think we do.

Sooner or later you will discover that real success is friends, strangers,

and anyone who crosses our path.

It is kindness shared, support given and received, listening,

giving, and caring.

These will endure while your car rusts, your toys break, and you tire of the temporary gratifications that bring you what you think is real.

What matters is people.

What lasts is love.

What counts are true friends, and if you treasure these

you can count yourself a success.”

One song can spark a moment,

One flower can wake the dream

One tree can start a forest,

One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,

One handclasp lifts a soul.

One star can guide a ship at sea,

One word can frame the goal

One vote can change a nation,

One sunbeam lights a room

One candle wipes out darkness,

One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey.

One word must start each prayer.

One hope will raise our spirits,

One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,

One heart can know what's true,

One life can make a difference,

You see, it's up to you!”

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,

But he with a chuckle replied

That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one

Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.

So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin

On his face. If he worried he hid it.

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn't be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;

At least no one ever has done it";

But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,

And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.

With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,

Without any doubting or quiddit,

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,

There are thousands to predict failure;

There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,

The dangers that wait to assail you.

But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,

Just take off your coat and go to it;

Just start to sing as you tackle the thing

That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.”
