Pain & Happiness

(Edited & re-posted)

 

In order to see clearly you have to lose it all

 

In order to succeed you first have to fall

 

To feel love you must feel sadness and sorrow

 

To let go of the past is to live for today and tomorrow

 

For a heart to mend it first had to break

 

Then you can begin to fix every last mistake

 

To know happiness you must first feel pain

 

Most times these two come together; they can be one in the same

Uncertainties of Life

Life is like a box of chocolates

 

That’s how the old saying goes

 

You never know what you’re going to get

 

Life can put you in situations you’re bound to regret

 

Life can also bring you happiness and times you won’t forget

 

Sometimes bad things happen to the good ones

 

It seems that whatever they do, it never matters in the long run

 

Life is supposed to be the best gift one could ever receive

 

For some, however, this is simply hard to believe

 

Life can be easy for one, and hard for others

 

Some may know their purpose, and for some it’s hard to discover

 

Life has obstacles that many cannot complete

 

They may ask, “What’s the point if I face defeat?”

 

Living a life without challenges is to not live at all

 

The most successful people trip before they can stand tall

Frail Hearts

Wanting to use something as an escape

 

Feeling like no one can relate

 

Faking a smile to mask the pain

 

Pretending to be happy is just one tiring game

 

Doubting yourself, second guessing your worth

 

Feeling like nothing will ever work

 

Lying in bed, crying yourself to sleep

 

Life’s a game you can’t seem to beat

 

Keeping everything bottled up

 

Making sure no one will call your bluff

 

Just wanting to feel the same

 

Wishing to never again feel pain
