Because I Could Not Stop For Death by Emily Dickinson. Heard this as part of the sermon today. This sums it up for me rather well.

Especially in the case of poetry, quantity is almost never accompanied by quality. Often, the more concise, the sharper the punch packed within the poem.

I posted this a long time ago, and this pin has had more repins and likes than any other thing I have put on Pinterest. I just found out that the poem is NOT by Emily Dickinson, but it is by a poet named Colleen Corah Hitchcock. Sorry for the wrong information and also sorry it isn't by Emily Dickinson cause I really like her poetry.

I labeled her on my "Queens of Horror" board because of her brutal views on the world and her many poems of death. Dickenson really gets it!

This poem is about how even though something could be hurt it still could be the best. Something that falls will have experience and it will push through and become the very best.
