inspirational birthday poems for myself
“May your spirit reach new heights, As freely as a butterfly’s wings, May your heart be filled with joy, The profound joy of simple things.
May your journey continue in peace, As serene as early morning dew, May only roses line your path, This is my birthday wish for you.”
“Today begins the first day of another age. For me, I want to taste life like it is new. Let the sun remind me of how beautiful life is May the rainbow bring colors of laughter to me So years from now I will grow like a baby. Happy birthday to me.”
“To laugh often and much. To win the respect of smart people, And the affection of children, To earn the approval of honest critics, And face the betrayal of false friends, To appreciate beauty, To find the best in others,
To leave the world a bit better, Whether by a healthy child, A garden patch,
Or a redeemed social condition, To know one life has breathed easier,
Because you have lived, This is to have succeeded.”
“If today was a fabric Then it will have all the colors of happiness for I was born on such a day to smile To be happy for the gift of life. For the blessings that guide me So I echo through history anew.”
“When things go wrong, As they sometimes will, When the road seems all uphill, When funds are low And the debts are high, And you want to smile.
But you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must but don’t you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When you might have won Had you stuck it out, Don’t give up, Although the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.”
“It has long been coming Since I flickered into this life And today marks the anniversary Of when I first shone my light. For me, I pray my light keeps shining To show me the path to greatness. So I grow with immense brightness And affect those around me Positively.”
“If you think you are beaten, You are, If you think you dare not, You don’t.
If you like to win, But think you can’t, It’s almost a cinch you won’t. If you think you’ll lose, You’re lost, For out in the world we find, Success begins with your will, It’s all in the state of mind. If you think you are outclassed,
You are, You’ve got to think high to rise, You’ve got to be sure of yourself,
Before you can ever win the prize. Life’s battles don’t always go, To the faster woman or man, But sooner or later, The ones who win are, The ones who think they can.”
