Freestyle Poem – Moral Poems

Freestyle poem about life. Life is a gift full of gifts.

One of the most tragic things in life is that we forget to enjoy what we have around us because we’re too busy making plans for a ‘brighter’ future [the big house, expensive cars, and our dream career]. Just take a minute and stop right here. When was the very last time you’ve thought about how you’re living today? [You haven’t, have you?]. If we’re always worrying about the future, how can we enjoy the present? Just remember, every day you live only happens once. You can’t take time back, you can’t borrow time and sometimes you can’t choose when it will end. Make the most of it while you can.

Appreciate and love

If we are blessed with eyes
Why do we not see
Are the ears we are given
Not capable of you and me

Why do our fingers just
Touch and not feel
And our minds hold evil
Not memories which are real

We should see a child, a baby
A husband and wife
And appreciate the amazement
Of the miracle of life

We should hear the birds chirp
In the early hours of the day
And listen carefully for their wings
As they flutter away

We should feel the heat on our skin
As the sun rises each morning
Or the breath we’ve been blessed with
As we cover our mouth yawning

We should remember the things people do
And the desires they’ve met
Instead of memorizing their mistakes
And being too stubborn to forget

Life has been taken for granted
And stripped of its beauty
We must appreciate and love
As this is our only duty

  2. Lovely poem, Marinela!
    You are so young and so talented.

    Thanks for your nice comment on my blog.

  3. The first eight lines are thought provoking and then you follow on pointing out the little pleasures of life and nature we take for granted everyday. If only we would pay attention. Beautifully written and profound.
    I love your blog 🙂

    Hi there. Short poem but with meaning. Sometimes we just overlook little nuances of life to wait for something quite unreal to come.

    Good poem!

    Cheers!

    Marinela, another great poem..

    We have all been granted the miracle of life and its it should be a lesson to us all to go forth with an appreciation of our own existence and the existence of others.

    Take care.
