4 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 here encourage and inspire you to keep moving forward. As Franco Harris said, "Remember, your attitude toward a situation can help you to change it - you create the very atmosphere for defeat or victory." Don't let fear of the unknown stop you.

  1. 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.



  2. Is Life
    Poet: James Russell Lowell


    To change and change is life;
    To move and never rest;
    Not what we are,
    But what we hope, is best.



  3. 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.



  4. One Little Word
    Poet: William Brunton


    One little word can change our life complete,
    And make our days as if of honey sweet,
    "Thanks! " Thanks to God who reigns in bliss above,
    And thanks to all the souls we fondly love.

Moving forward can be difficult and frightening, especially if confidence levels are low. But encouraging ourselves and others to just take one step at a time can help ease any fears. And that feeling of being frightened is a normal feeling when we experience changes in life.
