Motivational Poetry

  • 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.
    Success is failure turned inside out –
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
    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.

  • If you think you are beaten, you are.
    If you think you dare not, you don’t.
    If you like to win but think you can’t,
    It’s almost a cinch you won’t.
    If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
    For out in the world we find
    Success begins with a fellow’s will.
    It’s all in the state of mind.
    If you think you are out classed, you are.
    You’ve got to think high to rise.
    You’ve got to be sure of your-self before
    You can ever win the prize.
    Life’s battles don’t always go
    To the stronger or faster man.
    But sooner or later, the man who wins
    Is the man who thinks he can.

  • There is inside you
    All of the potential
    To be whatever you want to be;
    All of the energy
    To do whatever you want to do.
    Imagine yourself as you would like to be,
    Doing what you want to do,
    And each day, take one step
    Towards your dream.
    And though at times it may seem too
    difficult to continue,
    Hold on to your dream.
    One morning you will awake to find
    That you are the person you dreamed of,
    Doing what you wanted to do,
    Simply because you had the courage
    To believe in your potential
    And to hold on to your dream.

  • You cannot change the world,
    But you can present the world with one improved person –
    You can go to work on yourself to make yourself
    Into the kind of person you admire and respect.
    You can become a role model and set a standard for others.
    You can control and discipline yourself to resist acting
    Or speaking in a negative way
    Toward anyone for any reason.
    You can insist upon always doing things the loving way,
    Rather than the hurtful way.
    By doing these things each day,
    You can continue on your journey
    Toward becoming an exceptional human being.

  • Follow your dream.
    Take one step at a time and don’t settle for less,
    Just continue to climb.
    Follow your dream.
    If you stumble, don’t stop and lose sight of your goal
    Press to the top.
    For only on top can we see the whole view,
    Can we see what we’ve done and what we can do;
    Can we then have the vision to seek something new,
    Press on.
    Follow your dream.

  • Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;
    Then took the other, just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,
    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

  • Life is but a mirror,
    Looking back at us.
    Everything we do each day,
    Should lead us to impress.

    And sometimes when we need,
    To see life differently.
    We have that mirror to help us,
    Change our view gently.

    The eyes of everyone,
    Also reflect back.
    Mirrors come in different ways,
    To show us what we lack.

    But most importantly,
    Don’t forget to always look.
    Be your best
    And life will look after the rest.

    What we see and what we do
    Are reflections of what is true
    Don’t let your mirror reflect the things
    That you do not want to come true.

    Instead each day set your goals
    Strive to complete, it is good for your soul.
    Give life all you’ve got
    Never look in the mirror and stop.

  • Live in the active voice,
    rather than passive.
    Think more about what
    you happen than what is happening to you.

    Live in the indicative mood,
    rather than in the subjunctive.
    Be concerned with things as they are,
    rather than as they might be

    Live in the present tense,
    facing the duty at hand
    without regret for the past
    or worry over the future.

    Live in the singular number,
    caring more for the approval
    of your own conscience
    than for the applause of the crowd.

  • Always remember to forget
    The things that made you sad
    But never forget to remember
    The things that made you glad.

    Always remember to forget
    The friends that proved untrue.
    But don’t forget to remember
    Those that have stuck by you.

    Always remember to forget
    The troubles that have passed away.
    But never forget to remember
    The blessings that come each day.

  • Light that lies deep inside of me
    Come forth in all thy majesty
    Show me thy gaze
    Teach me thy ways
    That I a better person may be.

    Darkness that lies deep inside of me
    Come forth in all thy mystery
    Show my thy gaze
    Teach me thy ways
    That I a better person may be.

    Love that lies deep inside of me
    Come forth in all they unity
    Show me thy gaze
    Teach me thy ways
    That I a better person may be.
