I am not a poetry expert by any means, but your poem resonated with Jeffrey! Beyond the excellent flow and rhythm, I really enjoyed the underlying message of letting the deep-seated sorrow go, to open up space for "peace and love."
Personally, I believe we have a limited amount of energy each day, and it is up to us to use that energy for positivity or negativity, but we usually can't do both. So, your poem resonated with me because it reminded me that "the only real way to live" is to live with love and peace.
Thank you for sharing your amazing poetry with us!
