  1. The Kingdom of Doubt
    John F Zurn, 2019


    Doubt is a worry
    that winds up the mind

    Doubt knows the what if
    But can’t solve the why

    Doubt feels the pressure
    To stand and be heard

    Doubt is the person
    Who won’t say a word

    Doubt feels uncertain
    In moments of peace

    Doubt finds the problems
    In all that he seeks

    Doubt causes anguish
    If life turns to gloom

    Doubt needs to give up
    Before fear consumes

    Doubt fills the prophet
    Who speaks without truth

    Doubt heeds the warnings
    Of those without proof

    Doubt is the kingdom
    Of what might have been

    Doubt can’t be open
    When love comes again

  3. Keep Stepping
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2008


    When the road seems long
    And you don't feel so strong
    Don't be overwhelmed,
    focus on the good
    and you will see that you could
    achieve your goal, finish the journey
    by taking one step after another

  7. True Worth
    Poet: Alice Cary


    True worth is in being, not in seeming -
    In doing, each day that goes by,
    Some little good - no in dreaming
    Of the great things to do by and by.

  9. Stick It Out
    Poet: Unknown


    And many a failure turns about

  11. Five Things

    A rainbow 'cross the sky,

    There for all to see,
    A gift of gentle love
    To you, from me!

  19. The Task
    Margaret E. Bruner


    I found the task that I had dreaded so
    Was not so difficult when once begun;

  21. Day by Day
    Poet: George Klingle


    God broke the years to hours and days,

    We might be able all along
    To keep quite strong.

  23. Genius I Met
    Poet: Jaymac, 1988


    Genius I met the other day
    He looked at me and walked away
    What did he see, thought I with frown,
    Fellow genius or happy clown?
    I laughed, then, at my own self-folly
    (And safe beneath my humour's brolly)
    I walked with lightsome feet grown free
    By the happy clown I strive to be!


  24. Smile Poem


  25. Each Day
    Poet: Goethe


    Wouldst shape a noble life? Then cast
    No backward glances toward the past,
    And though somewhat be lost and gone,
    Yet do thou act as one new-born;
    What each day needs, that shalt thou ask,
    Each day will set its proper task.


  26. Poems About Life


  27. Courage Is
    Poet: Amelia Earhart


    Courage is the price
    that life extracts
    for granting peace.
    The soul that knows it not,
    knows no release
    from little things.


  28. Courage Quotes


  29. 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!

  31. The Power Of Little Things
    Poet: Francis Ridley Havergal


    The memory of a kindly word for long gone by,
    The fragrance of a fading flower sent lovingly,
    The gleaming of a sudden smile or sudden tear.
    The warm pressure of the hand. the tone of cheer.

    The note that only bears a verse from God’s own Word: —
    Such tiny things we hardly count as ministry.
    The givers deeming they have shown scant sympathy;
    But when the heart is overwrought. oh, who can tell

    The power of such tiny things to make it well!

  33. One Can Make A Poem . . .
    Poet: Jaymac, 1990


    One can make a poem out of anything,
    Once when I was little (before I was big that is),
    (Well I really wasn't that little, - but what I
    mean is, before I really was as big as I am now)...
    Well anyway, before I was big
    I wrote a little poem about what it would be like
    To be big.
    As it turned out the little poem became a very big poem
    Just like this one!
