a lesson in pain


pain is a weapon of self destruction
pain should be kept to yourself
wave it around for others to see and your only generating more pain
pain for sympathy?
theres no honor in that
fight your pain
dont let it control a single action
dont wallow in it
feed your pain and you are lost
if you love, love honestly
while u live, live realistically
no fairy tales. reality.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
