Since then, I've been looking for books of poems that I can read and enjoy. While browsing Poems That Make Grown Men Cry, I came across one of my favorite poems.
I first studied Do Not Go Gentle Into that Good Night in third year college when my literature professor, Mr. Calzado, assigned this to us for reading and discussion. There I learned that this was about fighting against succumbing to death, and since I've felt that way many times (you know, the feeling of just wanting to give up), this poem has always reminded me to keep fighting and to keep moving on. I haven't memorized this poem, but Do Not Go Gentle Into that Good Night's last line has been seared into my memory.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Are there any poems you love or have inspired you? I'd really love to hear some recommendations!
