Poems About Veterans For Veterans Day

Poems To Honor Veterans

Poems To Honor Veterans

In the United States, we celebrate Veterans Day on November 11th every year. It was first celebrated as Armistice Day on November 11, 1919, a year after the armistice agreement was made between Germany and Allied forces to cease fighting during World War I. The Great War ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. The ending of WWI was formalized on June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.


Veterans Day (or Armistice Day) was first celebrated on the first anniversary of the end of World War I, which makes 2019 the 100th anniversary of this holiday.



In the United States, Veterans Day is a holiday to thank veterans for their services. The focus is on living veterans, as opposed to Memorial Day, which is a day to remember those who gave their lives for our country.



The United Kingdom and some other countries celebrate this holiday as Remembrance Day. Two minutes of silence is observed at 11am on November 11th to remember all those who have died during war.



No matter how you celebrate this holiday, it’s a wonderful time to be thankful for the brave men and women who have served their countries.



This collection is filled with poems to celebrate veterans and honor them for their service.

Poems About Alzheimer's Disease For Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Poems That Bring Awareness To Alzheimer's Disease

Poems That Bring Awareness To Alzheimer's Disease

November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. It was first established by President Ronald Reagan in 1983. At that time, less than two million people suffered from the disease. It has now grown to over five million patients in the United States alone. Although there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, there are treatments that help slow down the progression of the disease.  


The Alzheimer’s Association has wonderful resources on their website about signs of Alzheimer’s, tips for living with the disease, help for caregivers, information on research and getting involved with support groups.



Whether you have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or have a loved one fighting this disease, we hope these poems will remind you that you are not facing this alone. 



November is also National Family Caregivers Month. There are millions of people who care for their loved ones. These people selflessly make sacrifices to care for those with special needs, chronic illnesses, disabilities, and aging bodies and minds. This month is a time to honor family caregivers and give them the support they need.

Poems About Accepting What The Future Holds

Embracing The Future Poems

Embracing The Future Poems

Looking to the future can be scary, but it can also be exciting. We are constantly presented with new opportunities. Let’s step out and take hold of those opportunities, even when we don't know how things will turn out. 

Change is constant, and life is a journey. We don’t know what the future holds. Although there are bound to be tough things ahead, there are also going to be incredible moments that we could never have imagined. 

Take a leap of faith. Set out to do something you’ve always wanted to do. 

Look to the future with hope. There are amazing possibilities ahead. Don’t allow fear to hold you back, for a life filled with regrets of not chasing your dreams is a life filled with sorrow and bitterness. It's time to let go of the past and embrace what the future holds.

Poems About Letting Go Of The Past And Moving Forward

Letting Go Of The Past Poems

Letting Go Of The Past Poems

For many, the past year was tough. There were unforeseeable changes, unexpected diagnoses, broken relationships, the loss of loved ones, and many heartbreaking disappointments. It was a discouraging and frustrating year, one many would never want to relive. We look toward the New Year with great expectations and a yearning for the hope that things will be better. If it was a defeating year, it might feel as though there’s no possible way for things to be better. But we must each choose to move forward and put the past behind us.

Even in the darkness, light is coming. Even in the midst of the storm, a calmness is coming. Even in the midst of brokenness, restoration is possible. 

Although we cannot change the past, we can let go of it and move forward. A New Year is a chance to start fresh and leave behind the things that have brought pain and heartbreak. 

May these poems give you the hope, inspiration, and courage to let go of the past and embrace the future to pursue a life well-lived

Poems About Success

Success Poems

Success Poems

We all want to be successful. But what is success? Too many times, we measure it by a person's wealth or status. We often use those markers to determine whether or not we have been successful in life. Basing it on that criteria alone means that a lot of people will never meet the world's definition of "success."



Success is attaining a purpose or goal you have set out to accomplish. The poems in this collection take a deeper look at other definitions of success. It's not about living up to the world's standards. Being successful is much more than money or popularity. It's about being yourself, working hard to achieve your dreams, learning lessons from your mistakes, and living your best life.



The start of a new year is marked with many resolutions. Some look at keeping those resolutions as a marker for success. But for many, it's challenging to accomplish the goals we have at the beginning of the year. This year, instead of resolutions of losing weight or getting organized, why don't we focus on our character? Let's look for ways to be kinder, more encouraging, and present with those around us. Let's not get distracted by the expectations of the world. Instead, let's live out our own definition of success.
