Inspirational Poems by Teens

Poems about Inspiration and Hope

Genuine feelings of self worth, confidence, and happiness can be elusive. Sometimes you need a little inspiration to believe in yourself and find a source of motivation. Often other people's words or experiences can give you just that inspiration. They can also help you to live up to challenges, become the person you want to be, try new things, learn from your mistakes, and find happiness. Life may not be perfect, but it can still be beautiful. You just have to learn how to find inspiration in life, in spite of its many imperfections.

  1. Just Because

    Poems About Being Unique And Special

    Just because I have never done drugs, doesn't mean I'm not cool.
    Just because I am a virgin, doesn't make me lame.
    Just because I'm not a fighter, doesn't mean I'm weak.
    Just because I am not a party girl, doesn't mean I can't hang.
