Thus begins Mary Frye's beautiful, inspiring (and probably?) tear-jerking poem. And you'll find a link to the rest of Mary's famous poem below.
Do not stand at my grave
As promised, some of the most famous inspirational poems in the world. Well, the first few lines, anyway, with links to the full version of the poem.
When you read these inspirational words, ask yourself these questions! Are these poems love poems? Are they friendship poems? Are they inspirational family poems? Are they poems about happiness? Passion poems? (Especially ask yourself these questions with the poems by Steve Maraboli) And then ask yourself whether these are poems about all of these things and more?
Whatever you think, do let me know what you think to these poems. Thanks.
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish,
Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
It doesn't interest me what
you do for a living.
Imagine a Woman
Imagine a woman who believes it is right and good
she is a woman.
Do not stand
at my grave and weep
Do not stand at my
grave and weep,
If you can keep your head when all about you
Do Not Go Gentle
Into That Good Night
Do not go gentle into that
Or why not read poems by Steve Maraboli.
Oh, and if at all interested in inspirational stories then check out The Two Wolves (short and almost poetic, really)
Or... I write poems sometimes - e.g. this poem called Me?
I suppose after those great inspirational poems I should deliver on my promise
of inspirational quotes too. How about these little beauts, then:
is hard if you live it the easy way
and easy if you live it the hard way. "
-- Joe Pollack
"The problem is not that there are problems.
The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking
that having problems is a problem."
-- Theodore Rubin
Oh golly, these are a bit of hard
look at life, aren't they. Okay, how bout this, then...
to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts.
Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me . . .
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."
-- Shel Silverstein
Yes, that's a bit more inspirational. (Isn't it, child?)
Okay, onward with the inspirational poems...
Okay now you simply get to listen. Presenting...
