Poems About Life Changes

Poems about life changes to encourage and inspire you. Life changes can happen overnight or they can happen over time. Major life changes such as a graduation, a wedding, or a new baby are ones that happen over time and we anticipate the changes. And then there are life changes that are overnight changes such as a death, a major catastrophe, or an illness.

Whatever life changes you are experiencing we hope the poems and quotes here encourage and inspire you to keep moving forward. Don't let fear of the unknown stop you.

Frightening Life Changes
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

I am aware of what awaits me,
But my nerves are quivering high.
Everything around will be changing,
Am I ready to say goodbye?

Am I ready to leave behind,
All I've known from birth to now?
This idea that life's always changing,
Makes me wonder why and how.

I know change can be frightening,
But I wonder could it be.
Could tomorrow be something wonderful,
That will make me so happy?

I'm done being frightened,
It's time to face the facts.
Moving on to a new chapter,
I will move forward and not look back.

Out Of Our Control
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020

When change happens that is out of your control
Don't sit and pout, and wait to be consoled
All change has some good
We just need it to be understood.

Find that shining light
And focus on what is bright.
We can't change yesterday
But tomorrow is a new day.

Move forward with focus
Life is too precious
To spend on the negative
Finding the good is the imperative.
