Poems For High School Graduates

To express a milestone, poems for high school graduates are very appropriate. Share these verses with others who need them. Many people would suggest that this level of achievement is the first great pinnacle of setting a goal. However, not everyone sees this goal as a level that needs acknowledgement. We think differently. Each level of reaching for a new target should get rewarded and should be seen as a stepping stone to future successes.

There is something special about poetry that supercedes other forms of eloquence be that a commemorative speech, or a family letter, or even that unique gift that may be seen by others as more extravagant. The hallmark of any achievement is not only that a person feels good about what they did, or what they managed to do to beat some obstacles they encountered, but it is also a much needed part of any proper development that any success be celebrated by those who are see as the significant others in that life.

These people are often parents and relatives but one is also encouraged by teachers, friends, or even those part-time employers.


Poems For High School Graduates

Keep On Keepin’ On
by Author Unknown

If the day looks kinder gloomy
And your chances kinder slim,
If the situation’s puzzlin’
And the prospect’s awful grim,
If perplexities keep pressin’
Till hope is nearly gone,
Just bristle up and grit your teeth
And keep on keepin’ on.

Frettin’ never wins a fight
And fumin’ never pays;
There ain’t no use in broodin’
In these pessimistic ways;
Smile just kinder cheerfully
Though hope is nearly gone,
And bristle up and grit your teeth
And keep on keepin’ on.

There ain’t no use in growlin’
And grumblin’ all the time,
When music’s ringin’ everywhere
And everything’s a rhyme.
Just keep on smilin’ cheerfully
If hope is nearly gone,
And bristle up and grit your teeth
And keep on keepin’ on.

Laugh A Little Bit
by Edmund Vance Cooke

Here’s a motto, just your fit -
Laugh a little bit.
When you think you’re trouble hit,
Laugh a little bit.
Look misfortune in the face.
Brave the beldam’s rude grimace;
Ten to one ’twill yield its place,
If you have the wit and grit
Just to laugh a little bit.

Keep your face with sunshine lit,
Laugh a little bit.
All the shadows off will flit,
If you have the grit and wit
Just to laugh a little bit.

Cherish this as sacred writ -
Laugh a little bit.
Keep it with you, sample it,
Laugh a little bit.
Little ills will sure betide you,
Fortune may not sit beside you,
Men may mock and fame deride you,
But you’ll mind them not a whit
If you laugh a little bit.

Opportunity
by Berton Braley

 With doubt and dismay you are smitten
    You think there’s no chance for you, son?
  Why, the best books haven’t been written
    The best race hasn’t been run,
  The best score hasn’t been made yet,
    The best song hasn’t been sung,
  The best tune hasn’t been played yet,
    Cheer up, for the world is young!

  No chance? Why the world is just eager
    For things that you ought to create
  Its store of true wealth is still meagre
    Its needs are incessant and great,
  It yearns for more power and beauty
    More laughter and love and romance,
  More loyalty, labor and duty,
    No chance–why there’s nothing but chance!

  For the best verse hasn’t been rhymed yet,
    The best house hasn’t been planned,
  The highest peak hasn’t been climbed yet,
    The mightiest rivers aren’t spanned,
  Don’t worry and fret, faint hearted,
    The chances have just begun,
  For the Best jobs haven’t been started,
    The Best work hasn’t been done.
