Conceptual metaphor can be considered from modern linguistic theories that are concerned with metaphor in terms of meaning and connotation. This is fundamentally different with metaphor theory in classical literature. The new theorists see that the aesthetic of the metaphor is not confined to rhetoric and literature only, but also to meanings and connotations as well. In the related context, "Janson" and "Lykaf" are considered among the vanguard theorists in the field of conceptual metaphor who view the metaphor from a semantic perspective. In this research, and based on the descriptive-analytical method, we have studied the meaning of life in the poetry “Baland Al-Haidari”. And one of the most important findings that we reached in this article is that Al-Haidari mostly carries a pessimistic view that sometimes turns into absurdity. However, his poems may be interspersed with poems that carry a spirit of optimism in their folds accompanied by a glimmer of hope. Then Al-Haidari used the conceptual metaphor as a tool to express his viewpoint on the life that he lived with his flesh and blood. It can be said that the conceptual metaphor in Baland Al-Haidari's poetry stemmed from his bitter and tragic experiences in the reality of his life.
