Live Life

Poet: Julie Hebert, 2015

In the beginning, we find ourselves wishing
For things we feel are missing.

As children grow older our lives change,
We learn to rearrange.

Wishes no longer grant our wants,
We no longer get a response.

But through hard work and determination,
We will find our own salvation.

We will realize life is much more than about getting,
It's about loving, giving and not quitting.

In order to live, we need to forgive.
And let what's true be heard by all.

We need to let loose, and get our good shoes,
And never be singing the blues.

Wishing no longer shapes my living,
My living shapes my wishing.

Look For The UPside Of Life
Julie Hebert, 2015


Drops on my window,
Grey skies way up high.
The world looks so gloomy,
Why even look outside.

I sit in my house,
Depressed with a frown.
I hate feeling crappy,
But the weather brings me down.

Why do I feel crappy?
Why do I wear a frown.
Days like today,
Bring so much to this town.

If it weren't for the rain,
We'd all live in a desert.
With no trees, grass or flowers,
Just dirt and prickly cactus.

There would be no fields to run in,
Or gardens to adore.
No tree leaves to jump in,
That fall to the floor.

And for kids most of all,
This tragedy they'd endure.
What good are rain coats and rubber boots,
If puddles are no more.

If we look at it differently,
And see not just bad.
See the good in what rain brings,
Maybe these days we'd be glad.

And life is just like that,
You only see what you decide.
You have to open yourself up,
And allow for both sides.

The rain will stop sometime,
And a rainbow will appear.
The sun will come out too,
And it'll all feel like cheer.

You'll run in the green field,
And smell a fresh flower.
The trees will blow softly,
All because of a shower.



The Wage Of Life
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

In life we must earn a wage,
To get us through some trials.
As to live a certain life,
Money is needed in piles.

We have to pay our bills,
And have a place to live.
So we find a simple job,
And money it will give.

But simple jobs are that,
A means to an end.
It is just a job,
It does not feel like a best friend.

So we work our simple jobs,
And pay what we can.
Our lives roll on by,
Without even a begin.

There will come a time,
When we’ll want more than this life.
And we’ll have to do what we can,
To get out of all of this strife.

A wage is nothing at all,
If a smile it can not make.
So its time to make a big change,
And take this life and give it a shake.

Figure out what will make you smile,
And make that feeling true.
Life will take you everywhere,
If you only allow yourself too.

Be who you want to be,
And don’t stop for anyone.
You can be anything you want,
And your wage can be your sun.
