Inspirational Life Poems
A Selection of the Best Poems About Life
Motivational life poems can inspire us, engage us, and affect us in many ways.
They often convey an exciting celebration of the world we live in, while exploring virtues that many of us aspire too.
For my birthday, a friend of mine gave me a short poetic quote that has become a favorite life poem of mine. It sits in a framed stand on my desk:
"Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is God's gift,
that is why we call it the present."
This says it all very eloquently don't you think? Today is the only day that really matters. I find most poems about life carry a similar message to us.
The selected of verses featured below encompass values such as honesty, kindness, success, generosity, knowledge, respect, faith, encouragement and humility.
When reading them, I found that they grace us with knowledgeable wisdom and encourage all of us to be the best that we can be every day. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
"Poetry begins in delight and ends in wisdom."
~Robert Frost (1874 - 1963)
