It talks of great acts and great deeds, but also of love and romance and laughter and loyalty — things that every man or woman is capable of. Value what you have to contribute to this world. No chance? Stepping away from the famous and classic works, we find this gem of a poem by an amateur writer just goes to show that anyone can create pieces of great meaning. Much like those more well-known poems above, it talks us through how we ought to try to live our lives. To learn while still a child What this life is meant to be. To overcome the tragedies, To survive the hardest times. To face those moments filled with pain, And still manage to be kind.
With those who wander in the dark, To love with all my might. To still stand up with courage, Though standing on my own. To still get up and face each day, Even when I feel alone. To try to understand the ones That no one cares to know.
The Poetry I Was Grateful For in 2018
And make them feel some value When the world has let them go. To be an anchor, strong and true, That person loyal to the end. To be a constant source of hope To my family and my friends. To live a life of decency, To share my heart and soul. To make the most of every day By giving all I have to give. To take what God has given me And make it so much more.
Poem About What Makes A Relationship Work
To live a life that matters, To be someone of great worth. To love and be loved in return And make my mark on Earth. This is the shortest poem on the list at just 10 lines, but it encapsulates how life should not be taken seriously. Instead, the author suggests that life is a comedy and that the earth is our stage.
So what should we do? Act well. Make people laugh. Play our part in the world until the curtain falls and we depart this life. What is our life? The play of passion.
About Family Friend Poems
Our mirth? The graves which hide us from the scorching sun Are like drawn curtains when the play is done. Thus playing post we to our latest rest, And then we die in earnest, not in jest. We started with a poem by this author and so we shall end with another. Here, we are taught that life sits atop the building blocks of time and that our actions today give rise to our tomorrows. We are the architects and builders of our lives and if we want to attain our own version of success , we must put in the hard work and energy. All are architects of Fate, Working in these walls of Time; Some with massive deeds and great, Some with ornaments of rhyme.
Nothing useless is, or low; Each thing in its place is best; And what seems but idle show Strengthens and supports the rest. For the structure that we raise, Time is with materials filled; Our to-days and yesterdays Are the blocks with which we build. Truly shape and fashion these; Leave no yawning gaps between; Think not, because no man sees, Such things will remain unseen.
In the elder days of Art, Builders wrought with greatest care Each minute and unseen part; For the Gods see everywhere. Let us do our work as well, Both the unseen and the seen; Make the house, where Gods may dwell, Beautiful, entire, and clean. Else our lives are incomplete, Standing in these walls of Time, Broken stairways, where the feet Stumble as they seek to climb.

I rode around her in small and dizzying circles. Past the mirror and past the mirror where, one summer, she was reared off by a stallion attacking his own flaring reflection. Whatever else, the construction crane high above us waiting to be told how to do our bidding, we who bid and bid and bid.
Whatever else, the way cook 1 looks with such longing at cook 2. Maybe one reason I do not wear makeup is to scare people. In ancient days Men in my job prepared for endless travel Across the sea of stars, where Pharaoh sailed To immortality, but now we know This is no journey.
A long, aching pause Is all the voyage there will ever be. Already it is not like life. Today a flood, and you see the risk in proximity, in life stretched by loving. That the forests grow back with patience, not rage; I am hoping the flocks of geese increase their number only gradually. Then the sky. The local Who shows the snow-topped mountains to the stranger Sells him, so to speak, the landscape.
