They create a picture of the tough times and make us feel that we’re not alone in our frustrations. They can be a source of comfort.
Reading some frustrating poems and talking with someone you trust helps you become more clear about what you are feeling. Let’s read some of the best poems and overcome our frustration.
By Catherine Pulsifer
Though you feel like giving in
And surrender to despair
When temptation is to quit
The challenge isn’t too fair.
Take a break, think again
Don’t let the hope slip away
For when frustration sets in
There could be yet another way.
Don’t label it as a defeat
Remember previous successes so sweet
Push forward, trying something new
Take courage, try again with a different view.
Forbidden fruit left untouched
Longing to be tasted
Casted aside, undevoured
Wishing it will soon be desired
Ripe and prepped
Waiting to be feasted upon
It’s efforts are forsaken
Neglected and yearning
Unsatisfied with insatiable thirst…
Don’t Be Frustrated
By Catherine Pulsifer
A task put aside today is a future in dismay.
A much bigger burden once procrastination plays;
The abruptness of time, no escape or reprieve,
Success is denied by leaving it, rather than achieve.
Resulting in frustrations; a tragedy plain to see,
For yesterday’s work is not leaving tomorrow free.
Don’t be frustrated by things not being done
Do it today so that tomorrow you don’t run.
By Julie Hebert,
In life there are,
So many frustrations.
It all depends,
On how we approach them.
There are times,
I could sit down and cry.
But then I realize,
That’s a waste of my time.
My time is better spent,
Fixing the problem.
Crying would only,
Land me at the bottom.
So get on up,
And hold your head high.
It’s time for you too,
Let your frustration slide by.
By Dorothy Parker
If I had a shiny gun,
I could have a world of fun
Speeding bullets through the brains
Of the folk who give me pains;
Or had I some poison gas,
I could make the moments pass
Bumping off a number of
People whom I do not love.
But I have no lethal weapon-
Thus does Fate our pleasure step on!
So they still are quick and well
Who should be, by rights, in hell.
Those Annual Bills
By Mark Twain
These annual bills! these annual bills!
How many a song their discord trills
Of “truck” consumed, enjoyed, forgot,
Since I was skinned by last year’s lot!
By Alan Alexander Milne
I never did, I never did,
I never did like “Now take care, dear!”
I never did, I never did,
I never did want “Hold-my-hand”;
The Blackstone Rangers
By Gwendolyn Brooks
There they are.
Thirty at the corner.
Black, raw, ready.
Sores in the city
By Derek Walcott
Down the dead streets of sun-stoned Frederiksted,
the first free port to die for tourism,
strolling at funeral pace, I am reminded
of life not lost to the American dream;
We All Feel It
In life, we all feel it
The times when we have to bite our lip
We feel like throwing up our hands
Or digging in our heels and taking a stand.
Frustration is the feeling that I’m talking about
The times we feel annoyed or put out.
We can stay frustrated and let the stress mount
Or we can stop and to ten we count.
We may not be able to change what has happened
But we don’t need to feel like we are flattened
Take a breath and stand back
Take a moment to relax.
Sometimes it is best to walk away
And come back to it another day.
The frustrating feeling can be changed
It is our attitude that we must rearrange.
So next time you have that feeling creep up
Don’t give in and don’t give up
You may have to do it another way
But realize that is okay.
Life is too short to stay annoyed
If you do your health you destroy
You can overcome frustration
By building your thoughts on a positive foundation.
Today before you think of saying an unkind word–
think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food–
think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife–
think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life–
think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you complain about your children–
think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn’t clean or sweep–
think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive–
think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job–
think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another–
remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down–
put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.
Life is a gift –
Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, and Fulfill it.
This is all about the frustration poems.
