  1. Simpler Ways
    Poem written by Julie Hebert, 2015

    Making do with less,
    Is something we should all do,
    Corporations and associations,
    Make us fear we need new.

    But life way back was much simpler,
    Yet people were just as happy,
    They had everything their lives did need,
    They weren't nearly quite as sappy.

    People today feel they need to conform,
    Or coward out of sight,
    A life without the newest toy,
    Would obviously be a horrible fright!

    On the contrary people,
    This stuff is clouding our minds,
    Remember what it was like to be outdoors,
    Our hair blowing in the winds?

    The games outdoors give more than just fun,
    You get exercise, nature and friends,
    Computer, video and tablet games,
    Lock you up with no clear end.

    TV's and movies are always great fun,
    But do nothing but desensitize your brain,
    Sure you may learn a thing here or there,
    But eventually, you will be left drained.

    So turn it all off, put it away,
    Remember the simpler ways,
    Life before was great and fun,
    Before all this unnecessary haze.

  4. We Get So Busy
    Poem Written by Catherine Pulsifer

    At times, we get so busy
    It can truly make you dizzy.
    We put so much pressure and stress
    We don't even have time to get dressed.

    We run here and there
    Doing things our parents wouldn't have dared
    While advances are good
    We need to slow down, we should.

    So many things seem important to be done
    We don't leave enough time for fun
    We do so much each day
    We want success in every way.

    But then a major shock comes
    And for us, we seem overwhelmed
    It makes us stop and look at life
    We question our purpose and is there afterlife.

    When we find enjoyment in the simple things
    We come to realize all that life can bring
    Life goes by way to fast
    We must enjoy and make it last.

    Simplicity and simple things may seem
    Like only a far fetched dream.
    But you have the power to control
    By resetting your daily goals.

    Take the time to slow down a bit
    Before your health takes a hit
    Uncomplicate your life today
    You will find you'll be happier every day!

  5. Simple Vacations
    by Catherine Pulsifer

    To earn the dollars we work so hard
    To take trips to places afar
    We work all year to go for two weeks
    To see the mountain and the creeks.

    And that two weeks they seem to go so fast
    We wish for more time so vacation would last
    We go back to work and start again
    Saving money for a vacation to spend.

    But if we stopped and enjoyed our surroundings
    We would find beauty resounding
    As in our backyards, there are so many things
    But we don't stop and see the beauty they bring.

    It can simplify your life so much
    If you take the time as such
    To discover the beauty that abounds
    By discovering the things that surround.

    And the best part is the cost is less
    Which can truly reduce your stress
    You can enjoy it every day
    You don't have to go far away.

    So take a look at your goals
    Simplify and take control
    Find simple things that you can do
    It'll uncomplicate your life too!

  6. Life
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest

    Life's no problem deep and vast,
    Life 's no creature with a past.
    Some would have you think it so,
    Full of mystery, weal and woe,
    Wondering why we mourn or smile,
    Why we work and rest a while,
    Why we 're born and why we die.
    Why we laugh and why we cry.

    Life is not a problem play,
    Left unanswered day to day;
    Life is ours and we are here
    Molding it in fashions queer.
    We the mysteries create,
    We are conjurers with fate;
    Life is simple, man complex.
    We produce the things that vex.

    Life's a thing of beauty rare,
    Left for us to make more fair;
    Ours to do with as we will,
    Mold in error, mold in skill,
    Shape in sadness, shape in cheer, -
    Build in hope or build in fear;
    Viewed from any way we take it,
    Life is really what we make it.
