Poetry to the Rescue

...Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn
anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.

-David Whyte, Sweet Darkness, from The House of Belonging, 1996 Many Rivers Press

I have been a lover of poetry my entire life. Life often brings me a poem that helps me during a difficult time. This is true of David Whyte's poem Sweet Darkness. I think it will become my new anthem.  Do you have a favorite poem that you would consider your anthem?
