Enlightened: Noble Truths (Poem)

Life is pain.
It makes me strong
callous me up & I won’t hurt the same.
I’m not wrong when I think
happiness is there for me to attain.
Pain will leave when I
stop fooling myself
wishing for more &
avoiding the rest,
only to wallow in my pain
Instead being aware &
developing wisdom & care
will gain me the peace, love, & happiness
that’s deep within – somewhere.

  2. Pain is muse, as clearly evidenced in your write! What would our little notebooks look like without the stains of tears? Enjoyed my visit…thank you!

    • Without tears? My notebook would be significantly different … just the thought of it is sort of humorous … Thank you for visiting &; enjoying. Come back.
