Poets & Poetry

Thank your enemies

Thank the ones who abandoned you
For teaching you to stand on your own feet.
Thank the ones who made you angry
For teaching you compassion and forgiveness.
Thank the ones who hated you
For teaching you unconditional love.
Thank the ones who annoyed you
For teaching you patience.
Thank the ones who had power over you
For teaching you how to take your power back.
Thank the ones who scared you
For teaching you to defeat and overcome fear.
If you’re stumbling in dark times,
Don’t forget everything has ending lines,
Seize on tight to the rope;
For you know the world’s greatest treasure is hope.
No one can have control over everything,
So just let it go.
