Turning to the words of poems can help us to clarify and understand our own experiences better by connecting us to those others who have sought to do the same. I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. O Captain! My Captain!
They dull my eyes, yet I keep on dying, Because I love to live. Maya Angelou tweet. Poetry is a method of expression that uses specific words, their meaning or interpretation and rhythm to deliver exciting and imaginative ideas as well as evoke emotional actions and reactions. Poetry has the potential to provide you with insightful advice as well as encourage you, strengthen your resolve, motivate you to succeed, and even give you direction and clarity when your hope is shaken.
Some of these famous short poems you have heard before, but others may be new. Either way, we hope you love them! I keep on dying again. Veins collapse, opening like the Small fists of sleeping Children. Memory of old tombs, Rotting flesh and worms do Not convince me against The challenge. The years And cold defeat live deep in Lines along my face. Life through my bloodshot eyes would scare a square 2 death poverty, murder, violence and never a moment 2 rest Fun and games are few but treasured like gold 2 me cuz I realize that I must return 2 my spot in poverty But mock my words when I say my heart will not exist unless my destiny comes through and puts an end 2 all of this.
And I went to famous executives who boss the work of thousands of men. They all shook their heads and gave me a smile as though I was trying to fool with them And then one Sunday afternoon I wandered out along the Desplaines river And I saw a crowd of Hungarians under the trees with their women and children and a keg of beer and an accordion. Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all,.
And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness That most frightens us. We ask ourselves Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small Does not serve the world. We are all meant to shine, As children do. We were born to make manifest The glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. Difficult because we think that happiness is found Only in the places where wealth and fame abound. To care is to give way. I was once knew a man, who felt the same way. He loved and he cared and he did so much more. But the last time I saw him he walked out the door.
I guess to love is to try and to care is to understand. Now I know the reason why he never held my hand. To him, To love is a second and to care is a minute. My eyes were for you but your eyes were for another.
Never miss out
You were staring across the room gazing at each other. From that moment on my heart was hard as stone. You made me realize that I was meant to be alone. I stumble from bar to bar drinking the pain away. So now I walk towards the only place I know. Remember the cliff we used to dive? Remember the water that made us feel so alive?
Remember the salt, the sea and the sand?
Remember the way you used to hold my hand? Why are we so afraid to fall in love? Is it the hurt, the heartbreak, or not being enough? Why are we so afraid to even try? To take a risk, to jump to soar, to fly? Just like you and I, we were never meant to be. Cold and sweet was your middle name.
Just like ice cream you tasted the same.
But as the sun shined you melted in my hand. You were just a temporary satisfaction, another grain in the sand. Take down your walls and leave your door open. Why did you leave me in the dark in an empty space with a broken heart? With lips so soft and skin so pale, how could anyone hurt such a fragile thing? With eyes so bright and a body so frail how could you even leave someone hanging? I got lost and confused as I navigated my way. Not even in the nearest train station. Red and shiny, a temptation.
One bite, a contemplation. Poison strikes, a toxic creation. It was always so tough for me to see you this way. When things got rough you never asked me to stay. I packed all my stuff and finally walked away. Shots of whiskey bottles of beers Margaritas and martinis toasts and cheers.
Poems about Life Struggles
Behind smiles and laughter are the pain and sorrows drinking the night away and forgetting tomorrow. Light and I play hide and seek. In the mornings, Light always peeks through the curtains and windows it shines I cover my face the brightness it blinds. My blankets and pillows conceal me from being found. And slowly light fades no words, no sounds. You are like my morning coffee. A thought when I wake up and my energy for the rest of the day. Every warm sip I take touches my soul.
It ignites a spark that keeps me going. Before I fall asleep, all I can think about is how I get to drink you in again, and taste your warm touch that soothes my body. As the sunset-colored sky fades and the stars sprinkle the heavens, the moon peaks out to take a look at the wonderful sight it sees.
It casts a faint light over the earth as it moves to comfort the dark. Its glow reflects on the water and illuminates the streets and cities. It balances the contrasts it makes so that there will be no absence of light and no consuming darkness. But as dawn arrives, the moon will disappear into the light fading into white, gray, then blue. I sleep every morning to let sun shine. Did we not hear The flutter of its wings and feel it near, And just within our reach? It was. And yet We lost it in this daily jar and fret. But still our place is kept and it will wait, Ready for us to fill it, soon or late.
A Psalm Of Life - Poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
No star is ever lost we once have seen: We always may be what we might have been. I cannot in the valley stay: The great horizons stretch away; The very cliffs that wall me round Are ladders unto higher ground. I am not glad till I have known Life that can lift me from mine own; A loftier level must be won. A mightier strength to lean upon. Time Supreme Poet: Mary Ashley Townsend To every life there comes a time supreme: One day, one night, one morning, or one noon, One freighted hour - one moment opportune, One rift through which sublime fulfilments gleam; One time when fate goes tiding with the stream, One Once in balance 'twixt Too Late, Too Soon - And ready for the passing instant's boon That shall in favor tip the wavering beam.
The more cooperative we are, the more valuable we become. The more enthusiastic we are, the more productive we become. The more serving we are, the more prosperous we become. The more outgoing we are, the more helpful we become. The more curious we are, the more creative we become. The more patient we are, the more understanding we become. The more persistent we are, the more successful we become. Life Poet: Paul Laurence Dunbar A crust of bread and a corner to sleep in, A minute to smile and an hour to weep in, A pint of joy to a peck of trouble, And never a laugh but the moans come double; And that is life!
A crust and a corner that love makes precious, With a smile to warm and the tears to refresh us; And joy seems sweeter when cares come after, And a moan is the finest of foils for laughter; And that is life!
New Beginnings Poet: Mrs. Whitney Life is full of new beginnings. Some change may come, something is sure to come, to close one chapter and begin another. Life is planned just so,.

The Street Of Life Gerald Massey Not by appointment do we meet delight and joy; They wait not our expectancy; But round some corner in the street of life, They, on a sudden, greet us with a smile. Take the fun in with the labor- Take enjoyment as you go. If you'd live the noblest, truest, Keeping cheerful, brave and strong, Do not slave for future pleasures; Take them as you go along.
