The various themes of the poems from this book include: hope, happiness, belief, faith, strength, optimism, positivity, nobility, might, experience, improvement, preparedness, perspective, nobility, capability, responsibility, potential, self- improvement, selflessness, restraint, perseverance, humility, courage, virtue, faith, leadership, mentorship, integrity, patience, truth, honesty, creativity, success, accomplishment, overcoming, dreaming, achieving, and so much more.
It is my hope that these motivational poems may encourage someone who needs encouragement. I hope these poems may instill hope to those who feel hopeless, increase faith in those individuals who are faithless, strengthen the weak, and give everyone a greater outlook and perspective on life. We see what we want to see. We believe what we want to believe. As a natural outcome of these beliefs, we experience what we have told ourselves we would experience, and that can limit us if our understanding and thinking is in any way restricting or belittling. The more positive we can be in speaking to ourselves and others, the more positive our overall experiences in life will be. We can make the most of any situation - good or bad. It is my hope that we will look for the good and find it! - Jerald Simon
