    Life is tough enough I’d say,
    Without negative thoughts.
    A little bit of positive something,
    Powers the body with many watts.

    As the body cannot survive without nourishment,
    Neither can the mind.
    Make sure to nourish all of you,
    You never know what you will find.

    Leave the past in the past,
    This negativity will drag you down.
    There’s no point to dwell on anything,
    Put on that smile, remove that frown.

    When you look to the future,
    Set goals every day
    Be a winner, not a loser
    Be determined and persistent, success will find a way.

    — Catherine Pulsifer

    A life built on the sands of celebrity
    Can be wrecked by the rains of reverses.

    A life built on the sands of materialism
    Can be destroyed by the floods of adversity.

    A life built on the sands of pleasure
    Can be blown down by the winds of disillusionment.

    Only the life that is built on the rock of character
    Can withstand the tempests of time.

    — William Arthur Ward

    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
    Because their words had forked no lightning they
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
    Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
    And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
    Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    And you, my father, there on the sad height,
    Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    — Dylan Thomas

    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.

    — Mother Teresa

    To learn while still a child
    What this life is meant to be.
    To know it goes beyond myself,
    It’s so much more than me.

    To overcome the tragedies,
    To survive the hardest times.
    To face those moments filled with pain,
    And still manage to be kind.

    To fight for those who can’t themselves,
    To always share my light.
    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.
    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 always say I’m sorry
    When I’ve harmed both friend and foe.

    To be proud of whom I’ve tried to be,
    And this life I chose to live.
    To make the most of every day
    By giving all I have to give.

    To me that’s what this life should be,
    To me that’s what it’s for.
    To take what God has given me
    And make it so much more

    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.

    Romantic Poems: Short Love Poems For Him And Her

    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!

    — Paul Laurence Dunbar

    Life, sometimes so wearying
    Is worth its weight in gold
    The experience of traveling
    Lends a wisdom that is old
    Beyond our ‘living memory’
    A softly spoken prayer:

    “It’s the journey that’s important,
    Not the getting there!”

    Ins and outs and ups and downs
    Life’s road meanders aimlessly?
    Or so it seems, but somehow
    Leads us where we need to be,
    And being simply human
    We oft question and compare . . .

    “Is the journey so important
    Or the getting there?”

    And thus it’s always been
    That question pondered down the ages
    By simple men with simple ways
    To wise and ancient sages . . .
    How sweet then, quietly knowing
    Reaching destination fair:

    “It’s the journey that’s important,
    Not the getting there!”

    — John McLeod

    Life is like a piece of art,
    It requires lots of heart.
    Choose your paint and your brush,
    Take your time, avoid the rush.

    Before you paint, choose your theme,
    Don’t be afraid to follow your dream.
    It’s alright to make a mistake.
    Your painting is real; it’s not fake.

    Look at your painting, don’t be crying,
    Begin again; keep on trying.
    Your painting is never fully complete,
    Enjoy the process; make sure it’s sweet.

    — Unknown

    “What is a good life,” asked the child
    That question made me think awhile
    I thought of many different material things
    And then questioned, do happiness they bring?

    So then I thought about people, not things
    It’s true, relationships they bring
    Much happiness and smiles too
    The people who are with you through and through.

    And helping others when they are down
    Can bring so much to those who frown
    And you get back more than you give
    You can help take away the negative.

    So my answer to the child,
    Was one that’s not so wild,
    “The good life is love shared and given,
    That truly is good living.”

    — Catherine Pulsifer

    Life is an opportunity,
    seize the day, live each day to the fullest.
    Life is not a project,
    but a journey to be enjoyed.

    Life is a gift, accept it,
    enjoy it, and be happy with it.
    Life is a challenge,
    but challenges can always be overcome.

    Life is to be lived,
    not to be dreamed.
    Life is a wonder,
    if you sit back and be thankful.

    Life is a decision each of us makes,
    to be happy or sad.
    Life is a time
    for new beginnings and endings.

    Life is a balance,
    take time for play not just work.
    Life is a joy
    for those who are optimistic.

    Life is a bundle of possibilities
    if you just look for them.
    Life is a meant to do,
    not to regret.

    Life is no bed of roses
    but life is what you make it.

    — Catherine Pulsifer
