It Was Worth It - Poem by Weldon Davis

All the pain
All the struggle
All the late nights
I stayed awake

All the lessons
Somewhat learned
Burned into
My brain like a hot poker

All the loneliness
All the shame
All the slander
To my name

Has been worth it! !
If this is what it took
To wake up
And look at myself

To see that I only
Have one shot at life
That the most important things
Are passing me by...

The things I love most
Poetry
My family
Delaney

Poet's Notes about The Poem
