Just Remember.... Poem by Dee Corpolongo

Just Remember....

Rating: 4.4

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

Pain often makes more powerful poetry and its memories can be either devastating, or serve towards growth. Congrats on poem of the day.

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.

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!
