No More Unhappy People
by Catherine Pulsifer, © 2015

There are many people in life,
That try and bring you down.
These people are very selfish,
And enjoy making you frown.

And then there are others,
Who don't even see what they do.
They unintentionally do certain things,
That have an affect on you.

The problem with all these people,
Is it's the same every time.
You feel yourself getting madder,
And forget they're not worth a dime.

Why do we let them do this,
Every time their around.
We need to start remembering,
That it's our choice to put on the frown.

And more importantly there are others,
Who are kind and sweet and smart.
These are the people we should be around,
It's time to make a new start.

Let's stop letting certain people,
Get the best of who we are.
They don't deserve our feelings,
Our tears or words by far.

We don't need them in our lives,
But if they have to be.
I'll hold my head up high,
And not let them get to me.

We will focus on the good,
And all the loving people.
It's time we honor those,
And life will be more peaceful!

Life, sometimes so wearying
Is worth its weight in gold

Desiderata Poem
Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly & clearly; and listen to others,
even the dull & ignorant; they too have their story.

Poet: John McLeod © 1982

Awakening to the fresh dawn of the morning
Not knowing what new paths this day will bring,
But trusting in his gentle hands to guide you
Just as he cares for every mortal thing,
And stumbling forth find strength you lacked so badly
Stream in to give a sense of fullness through,
To me, (one fails to count, the kindest people:
Samaritans whose names you never knew.

With dusk the toil of day brings healthy tiredness,
And climbing stairs one wonders all the more
How many friends perhaps you'll meet tomorrow
And what life's traveling onwards has in store.
How often, then, to lie as sleep steals over
And count the blessings that he brings to you,
Through people who are happy just to serve him:
Samaritans whose names you never knew!

Poems About Life Struggles

Is a windy, bumpy road.

Life can't be changed by kissing a toad.

How Sweet To Hear
Poet: John McLeod, © 1989

How sweet to hear in evening's hush
A song-thrush caroling its joy,
When sunset paints its carmine blush
And day's dull straws no more employ
The mind, and as one's rest draws near
A few quiet moments linger yet
To count rich memories so dear . . .
The love of Life one can't forget!

It Is
Poet:  John McLeod, ©

It's the little bit of sunshine
Lighting up the dullest day,
That brings a glow of pleasure
As we journey on Life's way.
It's the simple things that please us
Like a willing kindness done,
That son blow away each storm-cloud
'Till once more we see the sun.

Your Life
Poete:  Julie Hebert, © 2011

Each day we are given is a gift,
And a gift we always should appreciate.
When days start to run together,
It's then that our days depreciate.

So try to slow and take each day,
Only one at a time.
Life will always have its ups and downs,
But the ups are more fun to climb.

Every morning you awake accomplishing something,
Should be on your mind.
So choose your thought for the day,
And do it and then unwind.

If every day you have a goal,
And every day it gets done.
Life will never run away,
And life will be much more fun.

Waiting For Life To Begin
Life as a child went too slow.
But now that I'm older,
Im somewhat unsure,
Of why growing up quick was needed so.

Live Life
In the beginning, we find ourselves wishing
For things we feel are missing.
As children grow older our lives change,
We learn to rearrange.

Living A Simple 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.

Strickland Gillilan
Don't be foolish and get sour when things don't just come your way-
Don't you be a pampered baby and declare, "Now I won't play!"
Just go grinning on and bear it;
Have you heartache? Millions share it,
