Life's Brighter Side
Poet: John Imrie


'Tis better to smile than to frown,
'Tis better to laugh than to cry;
Then, don't let your spirits get down,
And never say "fail" tho' you die!

Though trouble like mountains arise.
And fortune seems hard to attain,
Look hopefully up to the skies,
For sunshine will come after rain.

Those taught in adversity's school
Are braver and better by far;
The cowardly man, as a rule,
Is not to be trusted in war.

A brave heart is sure to succeed,
The weak one will go to the wall;
And God will assist those indeed
Who help themselves up when they fall.

If in love affections are bent,
And wooing is met with disdain,
Bear up with apparent content,
And time will restore you again

The world is more full of joy
Than most people care to admit;
If usefully time you'll employ.
Life's trials won't hurt you a bit!

Don't despair
Look for the good
It is in the air

True friends will show
When you are low
Treasure these souls

True Friendship Poems


Forgive And Forget
Jo Deeprose


Forgive and forget
the mistakes people make
We’ve all fallen guilty to
giving less then we take
Share love, laughter and positive feelings
And you'll begin to see that life is worth living!


Poems About Life Lessons


Lemonade
Poet: John F Zurn, 1995


Lukewarm lemonade in a dixie cup.
The little girl who made the batch,
must have fouled it up.
Much too sweet and watered down,
It wasn’t worth a dime.
But as I sipped, she looked so sweet,
I said it tasted fine.
Her cardboard sign was cluttered up,
I drank and read the jingles.
“Ten sense ech” and “whil it lazts”
(I paid her with a single)
She stood there half bewildered,
Her smile became a frown.
She said she couldn’t change the bill,
Her folks were not around.
I watched her struggle counting change,
And then she gave a sigh.
She asked me softly, in distress,
if I could multiply.
But when I told her “keep the change"
A smile came to her face.
And then I knew, at least the day, Hadn’t gone to waste.

Inspirational Poems


You Got To Sing
Susanna Clark, Richard Leigh


You got to sing like you don't need the money
Love like you'll never get hurt
You got to dance like nobody's watchin'
It's gotta come from the heart
If you want it to work.

Wisdom About Life
Poet: Unknown


It takes years to build up trust, but only seconds to destroy it.
You can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes.
After that you'd better know something.
Don't compare yourself to the best others can do,
But to the best you can do.

It's not what happens to people that's important.
It's what they do about it.
Always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
You control your attitude or it controls you.

It isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
Your background and circumstances may have influenced who you are,
But you are responsible for who you become.
Even if you do the right thing for the wrong reason,
It's still the wrong thing to do.

Poems of Encouragement


The Kitchen
Poet Unknown


A Home is made of many rooms to rest, to sleep, to shower,
To play, and read, and talk a lot, do hobbies by the hour.
But the kitchen, ah, the kitchen is a room that's made of dreams
Of fantasies...created by a love of cooking schemes.

To touch, to smell, to visualize, the wonders that occur...
And then to taste, and then to taste results of things that were made.
At one time just "ingredients", in their places on the shelves
But become a wondrous mixture As though transformed by elves.

Yes, a home is made of many rooms, each one has it's pleasures
But the kitchen is the best of all for finding hidden treasures.
