Favorite Quote:
The supreme prayer of my heart is not to be learned, rich, famous, powerful, or good, but simply to be radiant. I desire to radiate health, cheerfulness, calm courage, and good will. I wish to live without hate, whim, jealousy, envy, fear. I wish to be simple, honest, frank, natural, clean in mind and clean in body, unaffected - as ready to say I do not know, if it be so, and to meet all men on an absolute equality - to face any obstacle and meet every difficulty unabashed and unafraid.
I wish others to live their lives, too - up to their highest, fullest, and best. To that end I pray that I may never meddle, interfere, dictate, give advice that is not wanted, or assist when my services are not needed. If I can help people, I'll do it by giving them a chance to help themselves; and if I can uplift or inspire, let it be by example, inference, and suggestion, rather than by injunction and dictation. That is to say, I desire to be radiant - to radiate life.
-Elbert Hubbard

It was easier to let our friendship go
Easier for me to say "I’m done"
Easier to walk away
Easier to never look back

Things you said
Things I said
The only difference
I have no regret

Words you said
Left me thinking
How stupid must I be?
Slowly I looked to you

Only thing that made sense
To say “ok”
No more fight was left within
Your face showed utter shock

I had my satisfaction then
Though I had to go a step further

I deleted you from
My past
My present
My future

Suddenly relieved
Easier to let you go, it was
Leaving you breathless-emotionless
Took my stand

Easier to let you go
Easier to let I go
Easier to let us go

I was inspired by an experience that truly did happen. So I expressed my true feelings through this.

Nice. I prefer rhyme and rhythm but this was okay. Good message and quite applicable to me if I were to say that the anrrator was breaking up with a girlfriend.
