  1. 81. I Am A Survivor

    I am not everything
    that has happened to me.
    I am everything I became
    while I healed.
    Stronger but softer.
    Focused but not obsessed.
    A teacher but still a student.
    I am not broken.
    I am beautiful.
    I am a survivor.

  2. 82. The Time Is Now

    With this poem, I want to motivate the reader to live their life to the fullest, to make the most of their life...

    Making The Most Out Of Your Life

    We have but a short time
    On this earth,
    So value your life
    For what it's really worth.

    Your life has purpose.
    God sent you on a mission.
    To live, to love, to learn -
    Is His commission.

    The world needs you.
    Believe me, it's true!
    Some things need doing
    That only you can do.

    Character matters;
    Be your own person,
    Your own original self,
    Not someone else's version.

    Develop your talents;
    They are unique.
    Use your time well;
    Listen only to positive critique.

    Go after your dreams.
    Be bold. Be brave.
    Swim against the stream;
    It's more than okay.

    The time is now
    To find your passion.
    Time waits for no one,
    So get into action.

    To be free of regret
    In your old age,
    Never ever forget
    To fully live today!

  3. 83. From The Heaven Up Above

    Nothing is as strong as gentleness.
    Nothing is as gentle as real strength
    Faith is not contrary to the usual ideas,
    something that turns out to be right or wrong,
    Give way to roads with greater bend
    and empty signs that still pretend. This poem is also posted on my poem-hunter.

    Motivating People To Live Out Their Dreams

    Why can't we sleep forever
    And live inside our dreams,
    Sheltered from the heartbreak
    That life can sometimes bring.
    You could live in a world
    Bordered only by your mind
    And never have to worry
    About running out of time.
    You could live out all your dreams,
    A life of love and laughter.
    Your every desire is fulfilled,
    You'd live happily ever after.
    You could take the stars
    From the heavens up above
    Then gift them to the one
    That shares your feelings of love.
    You could gather every rose
    For only their eyes to see.
    You would never have to question
    Will this love forever be.

  4. 84. Successful Life

    People too often measure their success by the material possessions they have acquired or their status in society. I think a successful life is all of the troubles and experiences that a person goes through and what they gain from them.

    What Does It Mean To Be Successful?

    Death is an inevitable fate.
    Someday we have to go.
    You hope you did
    your best in life,
    but how are you to know?
    It's not the model of your car
    or brand of clothes you wear.
    It's not some fancy, famous name,
    sewn in your underwear.
    It's not the square footage of your house
    or what you keep inside.
    There's no material you possess
    that proves success in life.
    It's everything you sacrificed
    and choices you made.
    It's all the problems that you solved,
    your lessons from mistakes.
    It's bad times you've persevered.
    It's all the fun you've had.
    It's any time you've ever laughed
    and every tear you've shed.
    It's any time that you've been proud
    of others or yourself.
    It's every song you turned up loud,
    and every friend you helped.
    It's every wish you ever had.
    It's all your dreams and hopes.
    It's all the books you ever read,
    the movies that you've seen.
    It's all the stories you told,
    The places you've been.
    It's every sunset that you caught
    and every cent you spent.
    It's anyone you've ever loved
    who mourns you in the end.
    It's all these things
    and so much more,
    so don't stress.
    If you lived your life
    Wild-n-free,
    Then it's been a success.

  5. 85. Worthy

    Sometimes
    you’ve got to look
    straight into the
    tired eyes of the
    woman staring back
    at you in the mirror
    and tell her that
    she deserves the
    best kind of love,
    the best kind of life
    and devote yourself to
    giving it to her
    all over again.

  8. 88. Mighty Oak

    • By Daniel Baker
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2020

    This poem is about suffering from anxiety and depression. It's about taking the beating and continuing to stand tall.

    Standing Strong In The Midst Of Trials

    If the mighty oak could speak the words
    Of the times that it's been tried,
    It'd speak about growing roots
    Instead of how it died.

    It'd say that it was strong enough
    And stood the test of time.
    Instead of falling to the ground,
    It stood and held its line.

    It'd speak about lightning strikes
    And wind that cracked its core.
    Though the dirt had softened,
    It stood and took some more.

    Though the tree bares scars
    Of the times that it's been struck,
    All the other trees around
    Gazed in pure awestruck.

    Its roots dug deep and powerful.
    No way it'd hit the ground.
    The story of the mighty oak
    Is one that is profound.

  9. 89. Daily Reminder That You Are Worthy

    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
    spectacular views.

  10. 90. Yes, Human. Yes, Love

    • By Sadwick
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2019

    We all have flaws. To error is to be human. In our error, let's remember we have the ability to be good and always try.

    Living Your Best Life

    In the face of many troubles,
    Side by side we will stand.
    It's not as though we crumble.
    Instead, we gain to understand.

    Learning life we see perspectives,
    Others different and some the same.
    We act in the moment to be reactive.
    Emotions are wild or tame.

    Love and hate we fight against.
    Life and death we struggle with.
    Gluttony and hunger we rage against.
    War and peace we struggle with.

    To be human is to struggle,
    Finding love in the depression.
    We are that individual
    Striving for moral right or religion.

    Act without reward or praise.
    Do your best no matter the circumstance.
    Go the extra mile without a raise.
    Give your brother a second chance.

    In doing this, you show love.
    To love is what is valued among all,
    So next time you look above,
    Remember we sometimes fall.

    Be encouraged in your weaknesses.
    Some flaws are others strengths,
    So let us give ourselves forgiveness,
    For love has no length.

  12. 92. This Is Your Time

    From Tanya Markul's first poetry collection, The She Book

    This is your time
    to no longer be who you were,
    to rise from the embers,
    to be guided by Her.

    This is your time
    to be carried by Grace,
    out of the matrix
    and away from the race.

    This is your time
    to forever change the rest,
    to untame, to shift, to lead,
    and live blessed.

  13. 93. Stronger Than You

    Sometimes our lives can take a road that leads to very dark places. Sometimes we find ourselves pushed into difficult places. Some may take a while to find their exit, their gate, their door to freedom. Some may just stop. But I believe it's strength of mind and soul that are our maps, our guides. Our inner strength can surprise us.

    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!

  14. 94. You Are Enough

    Along the way I have learned a tough lesson: even in my imperfection I am still worthy of love, someone’s time, and a consistent feeling of wholeness.
    My value is not connected to perfection, strength, or my ability to weather a storm. Which means that even on those days when I struggle to show up or feel ill-equipped, I am still a woman of worth and value

    You are enough
    You have always been enough, and
    You will forever be
    Enough

    no matter what you see
    how you feel, or the lies you may
    believe

  15. 95. Today I Am Afraid

    I wrote this one day just to get some fears of the unknown out. It inspired and reminded me not to worry about what tomorrow brings because it only comes one minute at a time.

    Overcoming Fear Of The Unknown

    Today I felt lost.
    I couldn't find Your hand.
    I felt so alone,
    I just don't understand.

    Today I am afraid,
    For tomorrow's troubles may bring
    More pain than today.
    I may not last; I'll continue to pray.

    Why do I worry about tomorrow?
    Today brings enough fear;
    For today was the tomorrow
    That seemed all too near.

    Today I am afraid,
    For tomorrow's troubles may bring
    More pain than today
    I may not last; I'll continue to pray.

    I'll never forget about the past.
    My pain will never let me.
    Tomorrow is how long it will last.
    By then I may be free.

  16. 96. If You Think

    • By Anisha Aich
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2020

    This poem is based on individuals who are afraid of moving forward and achieving their dreams. Due to taunts, they build up inferiority complex in themselves. So, my opinion is to move on with a positive attitude and you will get whatever you'd like.

    Always Move Forward With A Positive Attitude

    If you think you can reach the sky,
    Why don't you flap your wings to fly?
    Always give strength to your mind and soul.
    One day you're gonna kick your goal.
    You know you can; don't focus on others taunts.
    The day will come for them to realize their faults.

    If you can win and keep rest beside,
    Don't let others for your future decide.
    Work hard, work smart, and take the lead.
    Leave the fellows behind and you'll succeed;
    Never spell, "I can't." Control your pain,
    The sun will rise and reward you with gain.

    Many more things are there to say.
    Always move forward; there is a way.
    Never lose hope; move on with a positive attitude.
    The day will come to fill you with lots of gratitude.
    If you think you can reach the sky,
    Why don't you flap your wings to fly?

    Strength comes
    In so many forms.
    In giving people
    Second chances,
    In giving up
    Painful habits.
    In giving ourselves
    And others
    Life-changing love.
    In giving energy
    To fight for
    The things that matter.
    Strength comes
    in so many forms.

  18. 98. America The Beautiful

    Katharine Lee Bates was inspired to write this poem while on a trip to Colorado Springs in 1893. When she reached the top of Pikes Peak, she had this to say. “All the wonder of America seemed displayed there, with the sea-like expanse." The first version of “America the Beautiful” was published in a weekly journal, The Congregationalist, on July 4, 1895. Revisions were made in 1904 and then again in 1913 to become the version we know today. It became a patriotic song sung to Samuel A. Ward’s tune “Materna."

    O beautiful for spacious skies,
    For amber waves of grain,
    For purple mountain majesties
    Above the fruited plain!
    America! America!
    God shed his grace on thee,
    And crown thy good with brotherhood
    From sea to shining sea.

    O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
    Whose stern, impassioned stress
    A thoroughfare of freedom beat
    Across the wilderness!
    America! America!
    God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
    Confirm thy soul in self-control,
    Thy liberty in law.

    O beautiful for heroes proved
    In liberating strife,
    Who more than self their country loved,
    And mercy more than life!
    America! America!
    May God thy gold refine,
    Till all success be nobleness,
    And ev’ry gain divine.

    O beautiful for patriot dream
    That sees beyond the years
    Thine alabaster cities gleam,
    Undimmed by human tears!
    America! America!
    God shed his grace on thee,
    And crown thy good with brotherhood
    From sea to shining sea.

    When you're in a crossroad in life and things feel frightening, I hope this can help.

    Poem About Taking A Chance

    Do you think you stand a chance
    Diving off into the abyss?
    Do you think that you'll advance
    Even without an assist?
    Will you learn to find you wings
    And travel to the paradise that life brings?
    Triumphant in your success,
    You can finally rest,
    Assured that your future is bright
    And you did your best
    To see that your seeds take flight.
    So why be in fright?
    You're already in a slump.
    Why don't you take a chance
    ...and just jump?

  20. 100. I Hear America Singing

    Walt Whitman was an American poet who lived from 1819-1892. Some of his poetry was controversial because of the nature of its content, but he is believed to be the father of free verse (but he did not invent this form of poetry). He is also seen as a "poet of democracy" because he wrote so strongly about the American character. In this poem, Whitman shows how America is made up of a variety of people. It's the stories of those people who make America the strong and unique nation that it is.

    I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
    Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,
    The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
    The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
    The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,
    The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,
    The wood-cutter's song, the ploughboy's on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown,
    The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,
    Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
    The day what belongs to the day - at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,
    Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.
