Meaning of Life Poems

It is the thesis of the great psychoanalyst Viktor Frankl that man can endure any hardship as long as he can find meaning in the experience. Incidentally, as a survivor of Nazi Concentration Camps he was in a position to know. Thankfully, most of us are not tested in such extreme conditions. However, the principle is the same. Human beings cannot live without meaning. Depression is the natural outcome of living a life that is bereft of purpose.

  3. Remember Me

    Poem Encouraging Others To Make The Most Of Each Day

    If I were to leave this world today, I'd want to be remembered, it's true,
    for going that extra mile just to show my love for you.
    I'd want for you to be proud of me and know I always tried.
    When you hurt, I did, too; your tears I also cried.

  12. Music

    Poem About The Power Of Music

    Music is a privilege to all who hear her sing.
    Joy, heart and happiness is mostly what she'll bring.

    Her mood reflects your own in a way of imitation.
