Live Life - Savor It's Magnificence



~ Life Poems - Live life, And life Will Come To You ~

LIFE IS
By Michael Sage

Life is like a river, constantly flowing,
Life is like a tree, constantly growing.

Life is like the desert, constantly changing,
Life is like the oceans, constantly re-arranging,

Life is accepting, both others and yourself,
Life is understanding, and believing in oneself,

Life is committing, and doing the best you can,
Life is believing, and being your own very best fan.

Life is for loving, and also for caring,
Life is for helping, and giving and sharing.

Life is the seeds that you plant each day,
Life is creating a better world in which to stay.

LIVE FOR TODAY
By Michael Sage

There are times when life seems to be a dark shade of grey,
Your problems seem overwhelming & your nerves begin to fray,
The expedition you’re on, seems to be in total disarray,
And instead of being the hunter, you feel more like the prey.

Don’t get caught up in slander, nor gossip or hearsay,
Don’t dwell your mind on bad things that others have to say,
Don’t think about disaster or believe the worlds in decay,
Else you’ll continue your slide down that hellish slipway.

Don’t waste time or dwell on the regrets of yesterday,
Or walk around as if you have some broken vertebrae,
No one has burdens than GODS scale cannot weigh,
HE’LL never give you challenges if it would lead you astray.

Believe in the wonders brought forth with each new day,
Feel refreshed so as to tackle whatever comes your way,
Be joyous and happy as you climb on life’s Golden Highway,
Don’t fear tomorrow, plan if you must, but live for today!

Life Still Has Meaning
By Anonymous

If there is a future, there is time for mending-
Time to see your troubles coming to an ending.
Life is never hopeless however great your sorrow-
If you're looking forward to a new tomorrow.


If there is time for wishing then there is time for hoping-
When through doubt and darkness you are blindly groping.
Though the heart be heavy and hurt you may be feeling-
If there is time for praying there is time for healing.


So if through your window there is a new day breaking-
Thank God for the promise, though mind and soul be aching,
If with harvest over there is grain enough for gleaning-
There is a new tomorrow and life still has meaning.

A Creed to Live By
By Anonymous

Don't undermine your worth by comparing
yourself with others,
It is because we are different that each
of us is special.


Don't set your goals by what other people
deem important,
Only you know what is best for you.
Don't take for granted the things closest
to your heart


Cling to that as you would your life, for without
them life is meaningless.
Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living
in the past or the future.
By living your life one day at a time, you live all the
days of your life.


Don't give up when you still have something to give
Nothing is really over … until the moment
you stop trying.
Don't be afraid to admit that you are less
than perfect,
It is the fragile thread that binds us to each other.


Don't be afraid to encounter risks,
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's
impossible to find.


The quickest way to receive love is to give love.
The fastest way to lose love is to hold on too tightly,
And the best way to keep love is to give it wings.


Don't dismiss your Dreams. To be without
dreams is to be without hope.
To be without hope is to be without purpose.


Don't run through life so fast that you forget
where you've been,
But also know where you're going.
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored
every step of the way.

AS LONG AS I AM BREATHING
By Anonymous

I awoke so early at the dawn of the new day,
Hoping the nightmare would just go away,
But the tears started flowing, as they did the night before,
Why did you leave me? What was this for?


I thought I couldn't face another broken day,
I hated the reality that you were taken away,
It's just not fair that this has happened to us,
And it started to scare me that I had lost my trust,


So I looked to the heavens and I asked God "Why"?
Why in the world would a child have to die?
I didn't get an answer that day or the next,
And, I guess looking back; the question was too complex,


It took a while to realise that you weren't really gone,
That as long as I was breathing your spirit would live on,
So life took on a different meaning, I was living for us both,
Two souls inside one body, two spirits and one host.


Now, with every breath I take, I take for me and you,
And with every song I sing, I'm singing it for two,
And there's no doubt in my mind, with the prayers that I have prayed,
That the wings that you are wearing, grow larger every day.


The strength that you are giving me, on my journey here on earth,
Reflects through me, back at you, on your journey of rebirth,
Stand strong by God, you're in good hands, and I'll stand strong as well,
And together we'll journey through these lives, in each others hearts, parallel.

THE PRESENCE OF TIME
By Josie Parrelli

Where the clocks are beating
The journey starts
Time
Life is a sense of timing
Who we meet, who we see
What we do
Each step we take
Guides us upon our path
Confused, we question
The clock keeps beating
With no rhythm or rhyme
That’s where the confusion has started
We fear the clock beating
As if it’s a mocking call
Eyeing your every move seeing your falls
Be still in the moment, the clocks are not your foe
They are beating
In your rhythm
Your time
For the clock beats differently for all of us
Our steps, our journey
The presence of time is your friend
Listen to it, hear the beats
Dance
For when the time hits
You realise that the clock was always beating
In your time, your tune
Sing
For the presence of time is never to be feared
Never to be questioned; never to be argued with
Listen to it, hear the beats
Hear the melody, sing the song
Strum the beats
For within the melody is where your destiny lies
Believe and trust
For the presence of time
Is a gift, unique to us
This is Your Life Purpose
For here is where your story is told

LEISURE
By W. H. Davies

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or caws.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

LET ME LIVE
by Anonymous

Once I was a tiny seed.
Mother Nature cared my need.
I grew up as a shady tree.
Now my age is twenty three.

I have branches so many.
For children to play in company,
I feed worms with tiny figs.
I make homes with tiny twigs.

I am for the resting herds.
Also for the poor shepherds.
People breathe the air I give.
Why do not people let me live.

LESSONS IN LIFE
Kaleigh Magan Davies

Live it well,
Don't stay in the past,
Don't sit and dwell.
You made a mistake
But millions do,
The difference is luck,
They don't get caught like you.
Living is learning,
If you are given the chance,
Learn, Love, Grow,
Let your life enhance,
You know you were wrong,
You've been punished enough;
It's time to stop being
So hard and tough,
Forgive yourself,
Learn from your mistake,
This is your chance
To be what you make;
You are better now, you know more -
You see straight,
Life is a lesson
To learn...
Not hate

HARMONY
by Sashanah Decayette

Let us come together
and pray for one another
Let us sing a song
and all join along

Attach yourselves to the chain
and never let go
Bring yourselves as one
until the day is done
