Motivational Poems - Success Poems

A soulful and uplifting poem that asks you to look inside and embrace the mystery of life.

Embracing All - Anonymous

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 my thy gaze
Teach me thy ways
That I a better person may be.

Love that lies deep inside of me
Come forth in all they unity
Show me thy gaze
Teach me thy ways
That I a better person may be.


Don't Go Back To Sleep - Rumi - Motivational Poems

This short motivational poem is very inspiring.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
Where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.


It Might and It Might Not - Anonymous

You never know when someone
Might catch a dream from you.
Or something you say may open up the windows
Of a mind that seeks light;
The way you live may not matter at all,
But you never know, it might.

And just in case it could be
That another's life, through you,
Might possibly change for the better
With a better and brighter view,
It seems it might be worth a try
At pointing the way to the right;
Of course, it may not matter at all,
But then again, it might.


Worry Is A Distant Hill - Motivational Poems

motivational poems about life

Worry is like a distant hill
We glimpse against the sky,
We wonder how we ever will
Get up a hill so high.

Yet when we reach the top we see
The roadway left behind
Is not as steep and sheer as we
Have pictured in our mind.




We can't always seek big adventures or experiences in life. In this motivational poem, it's one little spark that makes a great change:

Just One - Anonymous

One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey.
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true,
One life can make a difference,
You see, it's up to you!

The Will To Win - Berton Braley

Success Poem:

If you want a thing bad enough
To go out and fight for it,
Work day and night for it,
Give up your time and your peace and
Your sleep for it

If only desire of it
Makes you quite mad enough
Never to tire of it,
Makes you hold all other things tawdry
And cheap for it

If life seems all empty and useless without it
And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,

If gladly you'll sweat for it,
Fret for it, Plan for it,
Lose all your terror of God or man for it,

If you'll simply go after that thing that you want.
With all your capacity,
Strength and sagacity,
Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,

If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,
Nor sickness nor pain
Of body or brain
Can turn you away from the thing that you want,

If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
You'll get it!

As usual, Edgar Guest provides a source of wisdom and inspiration. We can overcome hard times in life.

Things Work Out - Edgar Guest

Because it rains when we wish it wouldn't,
Because men do what they often shouldn't,
Because crops fail, and plans go wrong-
Some of us grumble all day long.
But somehow, in spite of the care and doubt,
It seems at last that things work out.

Because we lose where we hoped to gain,
Because we suffer a little pain,
Because we must work when we'd like to play-
Some of us whimper along life's way.
But somehow, as day always follows the night,
Most of our troubles work out all right.

So bend to your trouble and meet your care,
For the clouds must break, and the sky grow fair.
Let the rain come down, as it must and will,
But keep on working and hoping still.
For in spite of the grumblers who stand about,
Some how, it seems, all things work out.
