National Poetry Month – Day 4

This prompt is inspired by “I Dare You” by Dorianne Laux, which can be found here:

The prompt is as follows:

Recall an object (or several objects) you once held a strong attachment to, but have since released (or are preparing to release).

Begin your poem with the phrase: “Knowing what we leave behind … ” and describe the story of the object(s) and/or their significance/insignificance.
