It is easier for me
to talk to stray cats
than to my own family.

It is easier for me
to reach outside my reach
and pretend that I tried.

It is easier for me
to live a meaningful life
with no intelligent design.

It is easier for me
to drown my sorrows
than to save them.

It is easier for me
to love every part of you
than any of my own.
However, I am learning the value of doing things the hard way.

Yes, I agree with the relatables. And you also said it in such a way that made it so point blank and clear. Very nice.

Nice. :) Doing things the hard way, though, makes it all worthwhile in the end.

I like this, especially the particular parts of it that remind me of myself. Nice work.

Beautiful. I particually like the 1st, 4th and 5th stanzas.
Just a note; the artists comments, they fit so perfectly to the poem, could they not fit in at the end?
It means so much. So well crafted.

I thought about it - they were actually in the poem to begin with. But I kind of wanted it to be more open-ended, so people could tag their own thoughts on at the end.

That's a good point. Leaving the poem unanswered so people remember it later ... :clap: well done.
