Inspirational Poems | My Creed

My Creed

To live as gently as I can;
To be, no matter where, a man;
To take what comes of good or ill
And cling to faith and honor still;
To do my best, and let that stand
The record of my brain and hand;
And then, should failure come to me,
Still work and hope for victory.
To have no secret place wherein
I stoop unseen to shame or sin;
To be the same when I’m alone
As when my every deed is known
To live undaunted, unafraid
Of any step that I have made;
To be without pretense or sham
Exactly what men think I am.
To leave some simple mark behind
To keep my having lived in mind,
If enmity to aught I show,
To be an honest, generous foe,
To play my little part, nor whine
That greater honors are not mine.
This, I believe, is all I need
For my philosophy and creed.

Inspirational Poems | What I Live For

What I Live For

I live for those who love me,
For those who know me true,
For the Heaven that smiles above me,
And awaits my spirit too;
For the cause that lacks assistance,
For the wrong that needs resistance,
For the future in the distance,
And the good that I can do.

Inspirational Poems | My Comfort Zone

My Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn’t fail.
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before,
But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much.
I said I didn’t care for things like commission checks and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.
If you’re in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!

Inspirational Poems | Be A Friend

Be A Friend

Be a friend, you don’t need money
Just a disposition, sunny ..
Just the wish to help another
Get along some way or other.

Just a kindly hand extended
Out to one who’s un-befriended ..
Just the will to give or lend
This will make you someone’s friend.

Be a friend. You don’t need glory
Friendship is a simple story ..
Pass by trifling errors blindly
Gaze on honest effort kindly,

Cheer the youth who’s bravely trying
Pity him who’s sadly sighing ..
Just a little labor spend
On the duties of a friend.

Be a friend. The pay is bigger
(Though not written by a figure) ..
Than is earned by people clever
In what’s merely self-endeavor.

You’ll have friends instead of neighbors
For the profits of your labors ..
You’ll be richer in the end
Than a prince, if you’re a friend.
