Best Poems About Life

Here are 30+ Best Poems About Life : DON’T MISS

1) little girl

There! little girl; don’t cry!

They have broken your doll, I know;

And your tea-set blue,

And your play-house, too,

Are things of the long ago;

But childish troubles will soon pass by. —

There! little girl; don’t cry!


There! little girl; don’t cry!

They have broken your slate, I know;

And the glad, wild ways

Of your schoolgirl days

Are things of the long ago;

But life and love will soon come by. —

There! little girl; don’t cry!


There! little girl; don’t cry!

They have broken your heart I know;

And the rainbow gleams

Of your youthful dreams

Are things of the long ago;

But Heaven holds all for which you sigh. —

There! little girl; don’t cry!

2) Get so busy

3) my past life

All my past life is mine no more,

The flying hours are gone,

Like transitory dreams given o’er,

Whose images are kept in store

By memory alone.


What ever is to come is not,

How can it then be mine?

The present moment’s all my lot,

And that as fast as it is got,

Phyllis, is wholly thine.


Then talk not of inconstancy,

False hearts, and broken vows,

Ii, by miracle, can be,

This live-long minute true to thee,

‘Tis all that heaven allows.

5) Life is real, life is earnest

Life is real, life is earnest,

And the shell is not its pen –

“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”

Was not spoken of the hen.


Art is long and Time is fleeting,

Be our bills then sharpened well,

And not like muffled drums be beating

On the inside of the shell.


In the world’s broad field of battle,

In the great barnyard of life,

Be not like those lazy cattle!

Be a rooster in the strife!


Lives of roosters all remind us,

We can make our lives sublime,

And when roasted, leave behind us,

Hen tracks on the sands of time.


Hen tracks that perhaps another

Chicken drooping in the rain,

Some forlorn and henpecked brother,

When he sees, shall crow again.

6) Be Thankful

7) Between the form of Life and Life

Between the form of Life and Life

The difference is as big

As Liquor at the Lip between

And Liquor in the Jug

The latter — excellent to keep —

But for ecstatic need

The corkless is superior —

I know for I have tried

8) Under the soft translucent linen

Under the soft translucent linen,

the ridges around your nipples


harden at the thought of my tongue.

You — lying inverted like the letter ‘c’ —


arch yourself deliberately

wanting the warm press of my lips,


it’s wet to coat the skin

that is bristling, burning,


breaking into sweats of desire —

sweet juices of imagination.


But in fact, I haven’t even touched

you. At least, not yet.

9) Life

10) Look well to this day

Look well to this day,

For it and it alone is life.

In its brief course

Lie all the essence of your existence:


The Glory of Growth

The Satisfaction of Achievement

The Splendor of Beauty


For yesterday is but a dream,

And tomorrow is but a vision.

But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,

And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

11) Not Perfect

12) Light that lies deep inside of me

Light that lies deep inside of me

Come forth in all thy majesty

Show me thy gaze

Teach me thy ways

That I a better person may be


Darkness that lies deep inside of me

Come forth in all thy mystery

Show me thy gaze

Teach me thy ways

That I a better person may be


Love that lies deep inside of me

Come forth in all thy unity

Let me be thy gaze

Let me teach thy ways

That I a better person may be

13) Life is like a piece of art,

Life is like a piece of art,

It requires lots of heart.

Choose your paint and your brush,

Take your time, avoid the rush.


Before you paint, choose your theme,

Don’t be afraid, to follow your dream.

It’s alright, to make a mistake.

Your painting is real, it’s not fake.


Look at your painting, don’t be crying,

Begin again, keep on trying.

Your painting is never fully complete,

Enjoy the process, make sure it’s sweet.

14) Life is precious

15) Life has many ups and downs

Life has many ups and downs,

Loving smiles and also frowns.

Good events and some are bad,

Happy emotions, others mad.

It can be a bumpy ride,

How you handle it, you decide!

16) Life and love share a bond

Life and love share a bond,

Not through magic, nor a wand.

Each of us, both we need,

Nurture them, like a garden seed.


Life with no love, substance lacks,

To each soul, a heavy tax.

Love with no life, slowly fades,

It may take a few decades.


Life and love, has so much beauty,

We must enjoy them, that’s our duty.

Open our hearts, and freely share,

Life and love, will be very fair.

17) Life worth living

18) lonely, confused and sad,lonely leaf

lonely, confused and sad,lonely leaf

it feels as if i was just a shadow of the day,

in light i exist and in darkness, i am gone!


what am i searching for?

when i have nothing else to search for!

surrounded by all sides, i try my best to survive,

but i have only 2 hands!


i run, i run as fast i could,

till i have no breath and no roads left,

but i end up where i started from;


drowning in my bloodshed tears,

searching for a place where i belong,

i stand alone, wandering and wondering

What am I supposed to do?

19) my life grows

I can see the flower upon which my life grows, blooming into a rose.

See the hope and courage in the strength of the petals.

As long as I am, I will be.

The flower will never wilt or die.

As my life grows back, I shall become strong.

I shall become only dependent on one.

That one will be me.

I will rise with my petals high.

My life as a flower will bloom and prosper as I grow.

I may not be the pick of the patch, but I am just as beautiful as the rest.


I will stand as one, but not a lonely soul.

The tears will be far from my smile.

21) How are we so “different”?

How are we so “different”?

If “different” is just a thing.

If we all have certain features,

What does “different” bring?


People filled with hatred,

Can’t possibly see,

That there’s not really “differences”

Between you and me.


Looks can’t show “difference”,

If they’re just there to be seen.

If you don’t look like someone else,

Why are they so mean?


If being “different” is what is wrong,

I’d rather not be right.

And I’d want to finish living,

Doing the “different” fight.

22) Hidden in the attic

Hidden in the attic,

all the way upstairs,

is something very special,

that I would like to share.


My hopes,

my dreams,

old photographs,

of good times and bad times that make me laugh.


The joy of a hug,

the thrill of a kiss,

leaves me to remember the pure, simple bliss.


I cry for the fun,

and giggle for the pain,

I enjoyed the good life I was able to maintain.


The thoughts and wishes,

they all stay with me,

all of these contained in my book of memories.

23) Blossoming from the heart

24) Words that need to be spoken

Words that need to be spoken should not accumulate inside.

The hurt, pain or jealousy a person feels can not hide.


Sorrow and anger can be and will be suppressed.

But this only leads to a person feeling depressed.


Anger is a deadly toxin in which the body it flows.

When it takes over limb by limb, everyone knows.


The body – The mind controls and manipulates.

As the poison enters the veins and circulates.


When the poison reaches the heart it’s too late.

Disastrous emotions take over such as revenge and hate.


The antidote to cure these emotions, is not so hard to find.

We must search to learn to control our spirited bodies and minds.

25) Life is full of choices

Life is full of choices

Make sure you pick the right one

Don’t listen to the voices

Hear only yours and you have won


Many people will tell you

You need to change your looks

Don’t take to heart their view

Fabulous bods are found only in books


There is only one voice

That you should listen to

It will help make the right choice

That is perfect just for you


Your looks are your own

Someone will always love you

You will never be alone

Look in the mirror and you’ll see who

26) Tomorrow smile at someone

Tomorrow smile at someone

That you’ve never seen before.

Take time to think of others that

You feel compassion for.


Tomorrow tell somebody

How they brighten up your day.

Let random acts of kindness

Put your feelings on display.


Tomorrow hug your children

Somewhat tighter than before.

Be sure to think of all the things

You can be thankful for.


Pat your dog a little longer.

Hug and kiss your husband/wife.

Thank your God for granting you

Another day of life.

27) I sleep in the clouds

I sleep in the clouds, dream in the sky,

I’ll keep dreaming as life passes me by,

I think my dreams keep me sane,

I dream of happiness, a life without pain,

some people say I’m stuck in this place,

and I’ll never go anywhere,

but in my dreams I’ve already been there,

I know some day I’ll have to wake up,

but I feel the real world is more like a nightmare,

I’m safe in my closed eye wonderland,

this poem goes to all the dreamers that understand,

no matter what they say…

keep your dreams but don’t dream your life away,

28) To you I may be very small

To you I may be very small

Or think I don’t know much at all

I’ve learned to grow up rather fast

With so much future and not much past


I’m just two years old but often sad

I want so much to hug my dad

He’s protecting us from far away

His life on the line everyday


I watch my mom and see her cry

I already know but still ask why?

Her heart is hurting yet she tries to smile

And we hold each other for a little while


I’m still young yet very wise

I have my fun but realize

My soldier daddy is brave and strong

I pray his deployment won’t be long

29) In a world filled with changes

In a world filled with changes

each and every day..


I feel I’m being judged

for what I do and say..


I remember back to Barbies

and play days at the park..


When I didn’t worry about

other people’s remarks..


Now looking in the mirror

I see to my surprise..


A completely different person

staring in my eyes..


The carefree little girl

I saw at 4 and 5..


Is now becoming a teen..

Just trying to survive…

30) There comes a time in all our lives

There comes a time in all our lives

when truth will set us free,

so live each day as though you know

your last it may well be.

And when you make mistakes, my friend,

as we’re all sure to do,

be not so quick to judge yourself

and lay all of that blame on you,

for none of us are perfect.

We know that from the start.

Just do your best from day to day,

and listen to your heart.

31) why do we begin if we don’t plan to finish

why do we begin if we don’t plan to finish

why do we love if we don’t want to get hurt

why do we live if someday we must die

why do we smile if we really hurt inside

why do we frown when everything is upside down

why do we plan but not take to action

why do we cry when someday it will be alright

why do we get mad if we really should be glad

why do we mourn when somebody is gone

why do we say hi if we really mean goodbye

why do we question what shouldn’t be questioned

and answer what shouldn’t be answered?

tell me now…why?
