Thoughts for Motivation and Inspiration

A Place for Me
(I don't know who wrote this)

There is a special place in life,
that needs my humble skill,
A certain job I'm meant to do,
which no one else can fulfill.

The time will be demanding,
the pay is not too good,
and I wouldn't change it
for a moment, even if I could.

There is a special place in life.
A goal I must attain,
a dream that I must follow.
Because I won't be back again.
There is a mark that I must leave.
However small it seems to be.
A legacy of love for those
who follow after me.

There is a special place in life,
that only I may share.
A little path that bears my name,
awaiting me somewhere.

There is a hand that I must hold,
a word that I must say,
a smile that I must give,
for there are tears to blow away.

There is a special place in life
that I was meant to fill.
A sunny spot where flowers grow,
upon a windy hill.

There's always a tomorrow and the
best is yet to be, for somewhere
in this world, I know there
is a place for me.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

  8. Hi Tabitha! Thanks for linking on Amanda's Books and More! I really enjoyed reading your poems. I was familiar with some of them. For years the poem "Don't Quit" has been a favorite. It still rings true every time I read it and I love the rhyme and rhythm of it. You might like my poem "To Live Your Dream" on my poetry blog at
