One has not the ability to express pain,
without first experiencing the hurt.
Life offers both pleasures and pain
on numerous horizontals perspicuously clear.
What exactly is pain on an emotional or physical level?
An arrangement of aches, affliction, grief and of course love.
Love and pain coexists within us,
forming a rich foundation of bittersweet indulgence.
When taken in stride the effects of pain, coupled with love,
and the emotional roller coaster that comes along with it,
the acceptance brings about reality penetration.
