Life Lesson Poems

Poems about Life Lessons

It has been said that life is the most patient teacher. You will be presented with the same experience over and over until you learn the best way to deal with the situation. This is not because life is cruel. Rather, it is because things have a way of coming back to haunt us when we don't deal with them. One form of intelligence is the ability to learn from mistakes. When you are presented with a painful experience, take the time to think about how you can avoid it in the future. This is an example of a lesson learned.

    with a big bite,

    Tell Others How You Feel

    Each day we wake is such a gift;
    No moment's guaranteed.

    Respecting Yourself

    When I was young and insecure,

  6. As You Go Through Life

    Don't look for the flaws as you go through life;
    And even when you find them,
    It is wise and kind to be somewhat blind
    And look for the virtue behind them.

    Trying To Understand Each Other

    As a virtue for the weak.
