I would rather …

I would rather .

I would rather fall ,

Than to feel nothing at all.

I would rather cry ,

Than to feel no tears fill my eye .

I would rather love ,

Than not to get hurt .

I would rather save ,

Than not to feel brave .

I would rather listen to the nagging ,

Than not to hear .

I would rather walk a thousand miles,

Than to sit here in fear .

I would rather be me,

Than not to be here .

  1. Greetings & salutations. Discovered your blog tag surfing for new poetry to read and dropped in to look around. I enjoyed a few poems and read the post about the homeless cats, which touched my heart as I just took in a cat that would have been abandoned when my daughter moves because they could not find a home for her. I will return to read more!

  2. I love the lines:

    I would rather be me,

    Than not to be here .

    Thanks for commenting and visiting my blog.

  3. that’s a very honest and inspiring message – doing something with yourself rather than not living life as it’s meant to be lived.

    thank you for stopping by my site as well and for leaving a kind, nostalgic comment on my poem : ) i’m glad you enjoyed it.

  4. Beautiful picture! It fits the poem.
    What wonderful words:
    “I would rather walk a thousand miles,
    Than to sit here in fear”
