110 Motivational and Uplifting Poems
We Will Grow Stronger
I know the screams sound like thunder
I promise we won't go under
I know the heart feels hollow
There will be blessings behind the shadow
I know it's hard to breathe through sorrow
Today blurs into tomorrow
I know the voices seem louder
It seems like this will last forever
Hold on, please, hold on
In the end we grow stronger
We will do this together
Words To Live By
I can't wait to hold you in my arms
And kiss your tiny nose.
Cherish every moment,
Knowing just how fast you'll grow.
In the blink of an eye, time will pass by
And you'll be a little girl
Trying to find your place
Without a map in this big world.
Every road is unfamiliar,
Every experience brand new.
So many paths that lie before you,
Not knowing which to choose.
I don't have all the answers,
But there are tips that I can give.
If you want a life with no regrets,
I'll tell you how to live.
Wake up grateful every day,
And know that you are loved.
Be certain that you matter
And will always be enough.
Stay a kid for as long as you can;
Don't try to grow up too fast.
It's such a short stint in the span of your life,
So enjoy it while it lasts.
Always be sincere and honest;
Consistently stick to your word.
Stand up for what is fair and right.
Use your voice and make sure you are heard.
Believe in yourself and what you can do.
Be assertive and show that you're strong.
When you make a mistake, as we all do,
Be the first to admit that you're wrong.
Attitude is everything,
So make yours positive.
When the hard times fall upon you,
It's the best way you can live.
So don't worry about the small things,
Or cry when milk gets spilled.
The hard times aren't as hard
When your glass is halfway filled.
Be aware of your own beauty,
Without being vain.
Your looks will one day fade;
It's what inside you that remains.
Dare to be different, your own unique style.
Live only the story you wrote,
Be true to yourself and don't let your likes
Be based on the popular vote.
Forgive and forget,
Without keeping track.
When you hold on to the past,
The past holds you back.
Be brave, try new things;
It's ok if you fall.
The only way you fail
Is to not try at all.
Aspire to greatness,
Find a passion to pursue.
If you're willing to work,
There's nothing you can't do.
Ignore all the people
Who tell you you can't.
And if you have any questions, just ask.
Love, your Aunt
3. InspirationYou Have A Song In Your Heart
I lie awake at night
Hoping that someone can hear my plea
That someone above can show me
Something that I can see
Walking down the beaten path I ask myself
It doesn't make any sense
But I hear a small voice inside
That you can start again
You have a song in your heart
Something to be shared
A dream that's alive
Just try and you'll get there
4. I BelieveBelieve In Yourself And You'll Accomplish Anything
Into this world I came,
The light of the sun,
On my face I craved.
In the cool breezing wind,
Under the moonlight I sat,
I was great.
Slowly they got to me,
I couldn't catch up.
They cut to the deep.
Their constant watch,
I became stunned.
Strength waxed away,
And then I grew up.
They mattered no more.
All the lies I believed,
Like a flood on sloppy hills,
I let them run down.
New mindsets I built,
Strong confidence I gained,
Because I knew for the best,
It was I that mattered.
Like the Phoenix, I rise,
From the ashes of doubt,
From the ashes of contempt.
Like an eagle I soar,
To the ends of the earth,
To the storms that may be,
Because I have believed
I have all it takes,
I have all I need.
My dreams run wild,
My imagination unlimited.
I know what I want,
I know how to get it.
Like the sun,
I shine my light.
Like the stars,
My glory prevails,
Because I have believed.
Treat Your Life With Care
Your life is a gift more precious than gold
From the day of your birth, your life starts to unfold
Treat it with kindness and treat it with care
And the strength in your body will always be there
If you abuse it as some often do
An attack without pity is what it will do
You have many adventures still ahead on life's ride
And sadly, some sorrows you'll have to abide
You'll have to accept the bad with the good
But don't throw in the towel though we know that you could
You must go on, you must persevere
Hold on to your life, hold it very dear
Though sometimes your life may seem to be tough
The worst that could happen would be to not live long enough
So treat it with kindness and treat it with care
And pray for God's love to always be there
Stronger Than Depression
There you are, sneaking upon me!
From the corner of my eye, you make no sound, but I can see!
I ignore you're there, but you grow each day.
I fear if I acknowledge you, you will never go away.
I've seen the power you have over other people's lives,
I have seen their struggles and them strive
To keep you in check, to keep you at bay.
I've seen them give in and allow you to stay.
The confusion, the havoc you have played,
I have seen the pain and the price they've paid.
Swallowing them whole without a thought,
Like the helpless fish in the net when caught.
They squirm and wriggle to break free.
Yes, I see you there, but you won't take me.
I will not allow your darkness to consume,
I will not allow the cloud to linger and to loom.
I will fight you every day and every night,
Push away the dark, I will stay in the light.
I see you there waiting to pounce,
I will stand strong against your call, I will stand strong and denounce!
For all the sad, pain, and tears you feed upon,
Your call to me will forever be long.
As I have seen too many leave,
I know better, I believe...
In mind over matter, however dark the day,
Life is a better place when you're told to go away!
So move on and take your darkness too.
I am now stronger, Depression; I'm stronger than you!
Motivation For A New Year
We resolve to turn a new leaf in our lives
Yet go back to whining old ways in no time
Why do we break promises ever so often
When we want a better future than our past or present?
Why do we not care for ourselves
Yet want a story that the world will tell?
But if you want to change your story forever
Inspiration and motivation will have to go together
An inspired heart can move mountains and cut the seas
Don't the stories of these people inspire thee?
Then comes the role of a motivated mind
If left idle it can behave weird many a times
Convince the mind before getting down to work
Else you will have to fight yourself first
But the protagonist of your story has the biggest role to play
If you don't care, then nobody will anyway
So be the change, and script your story your way
Start with fulfilling the promises you made
It is said a journey of thousand miles begins with one step
Likewise, success in future depends on the promises you kept
We have a long way to go and many promises to keep
So treasure every moment and every New Year equally
Keeping Your Identity
Pick up your broken pieces.
Don't leave them on the ground.
They're screaming, crying, wailing.
What a sad and terrible sound.
Darling, leave behind your worries,
And leave behind you pain.
But darling, whatever you do,
Don't leave behind your name.
Your heart is an inferno,
One that water cannot quench.
Get up and dust yourself off,
And get out of this muddy trench.
Darling, leave behind your worries,
And leave behind your pain.
Leave behind the places you've been,
But remember to bring your name.
Your spirit cannot be broken,
No matter how hard they try.
The warrior inside has spoken,
And it's a rolling battle cry.
Forget about your worries,
And forget about your pain.
But darling, remember to never,
Never forget your name.
They'll never force you into chains,
For you are destined to be free.
Don't feel the need to fit the mold.
Be who you were born to be.
Let go of all your worries,
Let go of all your pain,
Let go of all that trouble,
But don't let go of your name.
Inside you are a lion,
Fierce, untamed, and proud.
On eagle's wings you're flying
To touch the stars above the clouds.
Forever leave your worries,
And forever leave your pain.
Go walk among the galaxies,
And forever keep your name.
Peace, Love And Harmony
If I could sing a song for the world, then it would be
A song for peace and love and harmony.
To cherish all the moments we hold so dear
And only cry those happy tears.
Let's not use weapons to fight, but fight instead
To bring together every woman and man.
That each child grows up and knows their worth,
So they can shine their blessings on earth.
Everyone is born with special gifts sent from above;
It's time to use them all and spread the love.
14. Take A Bow
Take a bow, lovely one.
Because you’re tired
And still you’re doing it.
You’re feeling empty
And still you’re giving it.
You’re unsure of yourself
And still you’re being it.
You got hit hard
And still you’re healing it.
Funds are low
And still you’re dreaming it.
Life ain’t so easy right now
And still you’re loving it.
The winds are blowing hard
And still you’re walking it.
Yes, take a bow, lovely one.
(You made it to Friday)

I'm convinced that those close to you are grateful to know you and to have you around. This is a very uplifting and motivating piece. I like it. Thanks again.
Start Each Day Anew
I sit upon my front porch stoop
Beneath the morning sun.
Grateful for the moment spent
Away from everyone.
The air is fresh and slightly chilled,
The sky is blue and clear.
The silence that surrounds me now
Is music to my ears.
I love the morning best of all,
It's my most tranquil time,
When the promise of a brand new day
Can ease my troubled mind.
When second chances seem more possible
And the world less cold and dark,
And hope can somehow pierce the walls
Of my sad and aching heart.
When left alone with nature
All the world seems far away
And the woes of life so trivial
When wrapped in her embrace.
But alas the birds awaken
And begin to sing their songs,
And people slowly wander by
And nod as they go on.
The sun has now grown brighter
As it rises in the sky
And in the distance there's a whistle
As a train goes lumbering by.
The world is calling out to me
To jump back in the fray.
To have faith things can get better
And let go of yesterday.
So today I get to start again
By the morning light renewed.
Feeling brave and energized,
There is nothing I can't do.Latest Shared Story

17. Keep GoingIt's Never Too Late
Strong people can
feel weak and
brave people can
feel afraid and
light people can
Lost people can
be found and
hopeless people can
find faith and
helpless people can
It is never too late
to turn things around
Even when you feel like a million scattered pieces,
you are still whole.
Even when you’re unsure of the path you’re walking,
you still have purpose.
Even when your lover leaves you empty and begging,
you are still loved.
Even when you’ve tried and tried and failed and failed,
you are still worthy.
Even in my darkest moments
I still have that little voice
encouraging me to go on.
To stand up and keep fighting.
To wipe my tears and pull it together.
To never give up.
That quitting is not an option.
That it will be ok no matter what.
Without that voice I would be lost.
I couldn’t make it in this world.
That is the strongest part of me.
And on Tuesdays you must look at
yourself in the mirror and say
“I am worthy. I need to be here.
And I am grateful I am.
There is beauty in my life and
I will find it. There is strength
in my soul and I will trust it.
There is purpose in my path and
I will unravel it. There is magic
in who I am and I will
believe in it.”
And then go climb your mountains
for today. And go find some
