Just Remember.... - Poem by Dee Corpolongo

why is that we always remember

the ones who have done us wrong...

when it is the very reasons for

the things that make us strong...



we may not always like it

or we question why to me?

but after some times passes by

if you look then you will see



We welcome all the happy times

but cringe when it comes to pain

but if we only knew of happiness

true living could not sustain



so know that when the times are tough

and hopelessness seems to rein

this too shall pass eventually

and the sun will shine again

    Very well done. Opposition is needed in all things. Without the winter, we wouldn't appreciate spring, summer, and fall so much. Congratulations on having it selected as poem of the day! (Report) Reply

    Happiness in life, when analysed, can be assigned to elements that made pillars stronger. They may be rough, tough, nutty, witty, gritty and pretty much shitty by nature. Excellent thinking. Well earned enhancement to be the poem f the day. Congratulations. X (Report) Reply

    Pain often makes more powerful poetry and its memories can be either devastating, or serve towards growth.

    What a wonderful wisdom in this poem, Dee.
    So true. Makes me think of the song, what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.
    Actually if something not so good is happening, we tend to curse it in the moment
    but so often only later we see that it was really necessary for our own personal growth.
    Excellent poem. (Report) Reply

    So true- we have to work harder to remember the pleasurable moments in life rather than the painful ones,
    but it's more rewarding when we make the effort. Wonderful poem. (Report) Reply

    We have to experience darkness before seeing the light, day before knowing the night, pain in order to know pleasure - life is about opposites, the ultimate aim of which is to reconcile them. Very good write Dee, well written and expressed. (Report) Reply

    You temper steel by pounding on it until it is red hot
    Between each blow there is relief where the steel gathers strength
    for the next blow, becoming stronger in the process.
    So as steel does so do people (Report) Reply
