I just wrote this poem a few minutes ago after I read a poem here. I found it to be very interesting and well written, and I thought I should perhaps share my perspective on some parts of the poem that spoke to me the most.

It is never easy to let "it" go;

yet letting "it" go, we must,

if we should ever learn to grow,

and not turn from dust to rust.

 

We are never by pain defined;

like fire purifies and refines gold,

we are indeed by pain refined;

this is a sound saying from days of old.

 

There is another and glorious side to pain;

letting go is necessary in order to get there.

humility and courage will break off our chain,

if we are willing to ourselves be true and fair.
