Have you ever read Stephen King?  He's written some rhyming poetry, but he's not well known for those verses.  But he is a wonderful poet, nevertheless.  His prose in the way he describes scenes and events is incredible.  The next time you see the movie, "Shawshank Redemption" (based on a story written by Stephen King), listen to the narrative.  It is rich and powerful.

What has this to do with your topic?  Go back and read your post as if it was prose.  You wrote it so cleanly that it touched the emotions of many people.  You may not be cut out to be a rhyming poet, but I suspect there is a bit of Stephen King's wonderful talent in you as well.  Just like in a harmonic orchestra, there are more than just violins and flutes in poetry.  You have a natural style in the way you write.  Don't force it into a shape for which it was never meant.  And don't be so hard on yourself, either.

Merry Christmas

Most of the Stephen King poetry I've read is in his Gunslinger/Dark Tower series.  I don't think he's very good as a rhyming poet, compared to his prose.  If you haven't read "Insomnia," please do.  His Foreword (Prologue?) is wonderful!  Even now I am deeply touched by how powerful that work of prose is.
