Disappointment

By Angel Marie Russell

Try not to allow
Disappointment
To take the reigns,
To tell you
To stop
And melt into shame.

Allow it to birth
Determination
To keep going
Drive
To keep having faith
One more time.
Yes.
Once more.

With practice
You can
Learn the ability
To choose love
Over judgement,
Responsibility,
Over disgrace.

You are not made
Of these fleeting
Embraces
With despair.
You were made to
Shine.
But sometimes
Pain mucks it up.

That’s okay.
That’s human.
Surrender,
Release,
And keep going,
Anyway.
