Motivational Poems


Take a few minutes to read the following poems below

to help encourage and inspire you.









If I Had My Child To Raise Over Again


If I had my child to raise all over again,


I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.


I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.


I would do less correcting and more connecting.


I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.


I would care to know less and know to care more.


I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.


I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.


I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars,


I'd do more hugging and less tugging.


I'd see the oak tree in the acorn more often,


I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.


I'd model less about the love of power,


And more about the power of love.


--Diane Loomans

Peace Begins With Me


Peace begins with me

starting over and breaking free.


Peace begins with me

opening my eyes and beginning to see.


Peace begins with me

curious about what I am going to be.


Peace begins with me

knowing I no longer have to flee.


Peace begins with me

having self dignity.


Peace begins with me

taking on more responsibility.


Peace begins with me

because peace is being happy.


and this is why peace begins with me!

I Resign


I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult.


I have decided, I would like to accept the

responsibilities of an 8-year-old again.


I want to go to McDonald's and think

that it's a four star restaurant.


I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and

make ripples with rocks.


I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.


I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot

summer day.


I want to return to a time when life was simple.

When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care.


All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.


I want to think the world is fair.

that everyone is honest and good.


I want to believe that anything is possible.


I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and

be overly excited by the little things again.


I want to live simple again.


I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes,

mountains of paperwork, depressing news,

how to survive more days in the month than there is

money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip,

illness, and loss of loved ones.


I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs,

a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams,

the imagination, mankind, and making angels

in the snow.'s my checkbook and my car keys, my credit

cards and all my responsibility.


I am officially resigning from adulthood.


And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to

catch me first, 'cause,


"Tag! You're it."

A Child to Love


You can have your wealth and riches all the things so many seek,

position, power, and success ,the fame you long to keep.


You can earn as much as you wish, reach a status high above,

but none of these can equal having one sweet child to love.


'Tis the greatest gift from heaven, little arms that hold you tight,

and a kiss so soft and gentle when you tuck them in at night.


A million precious questions and each story often read,

two eyes so bright and smiling, and a darling tousled head.


God has never matched the goodness of a trusting little face,

or a heart so full of laughter spreading sunshine every place.


a child to hold and cuddle, 'Tis a gift from God above,

and the world is so much brighter

when you have a child to love.

If at the End


If at the end of the day you know you've done your best,

Regardless of the outcomes you can peacefully rest.

For you canít control the results of anything you do,

but if you know you've done your best, to

yourself you've been true.

You Can Be Whatever You Want to Be


There is inside you

all of the potential to be whatever

you want to be all of the energy

to do whatever you want to do.


Imagine yourself as you would like to be,

doing what you want to do, and each day,

take one step towards your dream.


And though at times it may seem too

difficult to continue, hold on to your dream.


One morning you will awake to find

that you are the person you dreamed of

doing what you wanted to do

simply because you had the courage

to believe in your potential

and to hold on to your dream.
