The Love I Let Go - Poem by Mariann Gentile
In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you. Of all the strategems, to know when to quit is the best. Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity, or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere. Faced with inevitable change, the choice was mine. I could fight until my spirit was weary, or I could release all resistance and create something new in my changed world.
Read this poem about letting go to feel a little freer. You deserve that much. Yet… it is. Life is on your side. Like, putting your hand on your heart. Focusing on your breathing.
I have noticed a trend in my assigned reading. The theme of my English class is love—I chose this theme because at the very least, year-olds care about sex and death. The students usually notice this about three weeks into the semester. They joke, but inevitably, each student finds that at least one of these heartbreak poems resonates with them. I hope that among this selection, you find something.
