Wow! A lot to contemplate and digest there. I don't usually enjoy poetry but this poem speaks to me.

Well done...no, VERY well done.

If I were to change anything, I'd eliminate the exclamation point in the title--it's "telling" your readers how to feel, when it's better to rely on your strong words to do that.

I love the back-and-forth between the words of the song and your poet's thoughts.
Very well-written. So glad your speaker made the best choice by the end - not all do. This is a winner to me. :)
