I like where this poem comes from. Maybe the hardships in life can sometimes be good for people and I like how this poem suggests that the blues we feel is not wasted on us and may be a helpfull emotion that keeps us going forward.

Great poem. I like poems about the blues. It is such an artistic and heart felt music so bringing poetry to that stage only makes sense.
