Acceptance of the truth
Heard it, comprehended
Tears eluded, insisted on suppression
Ascended to above it, insisted on overcoming
Realized and harnessed my inner power
Refused to be a victim
Empowered by recognition 
This was all my doing
Inhale release it
Can get pass this
A blessing but mostly a lesson
A shaper of future choices
The fact is… it’s cherished
This experience so beautiful and heart wrenching 
Like the sunset breathtaking but fleeting
Captured in my mind eyes
Stored in the special compartment of the heart
Remove the once shiny crown for now it was tarnished
Bitter, sweet experience cherished

Just before joining the military. TF

    Your first line is powerful, in order to move forward we have to first accept the truth. Line 11 is powerful as well. Blessing are lessons as well, and we should never forget any of our blessings or lessons in life. I love this poem, my favorite one so far of your work I've read.

    Nice words, though the comprehensibility beat my little brain of external imagination.

    Thank you but I am not a poet. Everything I write is usually very clear and precise. I rarely leaves much for interpetation.
