And inside the honey jar
Face deep in the dirt
Hold onto what feeds the pain
Then wonder why you hurt
So true, we seem to hold tightly to the things that hurt us. Perhaps hoping it will change things or waiting to see change.
A million choices in the world
Could wash it all away
But bitterness has taken you
Where happy cannot stay
It's that one choice that holds us down ... ties us to bitter.
When all you see is what you've lost
You lose all you could gain
Life becomes an empty shell
Pride becomes your chain
This part speaks so much truth. When we keep looking back instead of forward ... dragging that big heavy suitcase with us.
A wonderfully penned piece that makes the reader think.
"Pride becomes your chain"
Very great line, I sensed to much wisdom in it, my fave!
Some of the rhyming words went a bit cliche, but other than that your poem is amazing and deserved the win :)
And you know how much I love your wisdom in the poems =)
