Life Choices

Life is filled with choices. Let these life poems inspire you and remind you that the choices you make determine your life - whether you are happy or sad, whether you look forward or back, whether you excel or are mediocre, whether you find success or not. What are you choosing each day?

The choices we make impact our lives and the lives of those around us. We hope these poems are a motivation to make the right choices, ones that you will look back on later in life and give thanks that you made the decision that you did!

And some life choices are very difficult to make and can be challenging to see which choice is the better one. In those cases find a mentor or someone that you look up to, ask for help. Sometimes just talking about it helps us make our decision.

And, lastly, if you made a wrong choice, don't beat yourself up about it. Some of the best lessons in life are our failures, that is how we learn. Pick up the pieces, fix what you can, and move on!

    There will come a day in your life, When you will be told, That life isn't a fairy tale, So let go of what you still hold.

  1. There Will Come A Day
    Poet: Julie Hebert

    There will come a day in your life,
    When you will be told,
    That life isn't a fairy tale,
    So let go of what you still hold.

    Making the choice to hold on to things,
    That you can never change,
    Is holding you back,
    And probably feels quite strange.

    So let go of the past,
    And look on to the future.
    This will lift the weight,
    With no need for suture.

    And never forget this,
    That the choice is for you to pursue.
    To determine what your choice is
    Let life be the best for you

  2. To determine what your choice is Let life be the best for you

  3. It Is Our Choice
    Poet: Julie Hebert

    Life is filled with
    Ups and downs,
    It's our choice, it's up to us
    To smile or frown.

    We are the ones,
    That makes a choice to determine our fate,
    Don't ever think,
    You are too late.

    Our life is made up,
    Of the choices we make.
    So get on out there,
    And get your piece of the cake.

    Don't ever let life
    Pass you by.
    Life's too precious,
    To just standby.

  4. It's our choice, it's up to us To smile or frown.

  5. Choices We Make
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2019

    Every day we have choices to make
    They may seem small but they can determine our fate
    We always need to weigh the good and the bad
    Making the right choice will result in being glad.

    When choices seem difficult to make
    We can stop and put on the brakes
    We can ask for advice and look for a guide
    Someone with wisdom to provide.

    When the wrong choice we decide
    We can fix it, not let it divide.
    Don't ever hesitate to say sorry
    It will be appreciated and recognized.

    And a choice incorrectly made
    Learn from it and you will see it fade
    So when it comes to choices do your best
    And everything will work out like doing a test!

  6. Choose The Path
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest

    There are no gods that bring to youth
    The rich rewards that stalwarts claim;
    The god of fortune is in truth
    A vision and an empty name.
    The toiler who through doubt and care
    Unto his goal and victory plods,
    With no one need his glory share:
    He is himself his favoring gods.

    There are no gods that will bestow
    Earth's joys and blessings on a man.
    Each one must choose the path he'll go,
    Then win from it what joy he can.
    And he that battles with the odds
    Shall know success, but he who waits
    The favors of the mystic gods,
    Shall never come to glory's gates.

    No man is greater than his will;
    No gods to him will lend a hand!
    Upon his courage and his skill
    The record of his life must stand.
    What honors shall befall to him,
    What he shall claim of fame or pelf,
    Depend not on the favoring whim
    Of fortune's god, but on himself.

  7. A Choice
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest

    Rather win a brother's smile
    Than a stack of dollar notes,
    Rather do one thing worth while
    Than have all the nation's votes;
    Rather tread the simple way
    Where the sweet wild roses are
    Than to dress in glad array
    And be prince or king or czar.

    Somehow, when I sum it up,
    I would rather be a friend
    Than by force snatch victory's cup
    And be hated in the end.
    I would rather leave behind
    Tender gentle thoughts of me
    Than have those who follow find
    Stains upon my memory.

    Rather do the simple things,
    Rather play a lowly part
    Than to win the praise of kings
    And be cold and hard of heart.
    I would rather fail to be
    Rich or famous on the earth,
    Rather dwell in poverty
    If my deeds will tell my worth.

    Rather feel a brother's hand
    Clasped in mine, as friendship's vow
    Than in pomp and pride to stand
    With a crown upon my brow.
    Rather have one find me true
    Than have thousands call me great
    And despise the things I do,
    Turning from me in their hate.
