Poem: Pain Is Fuel for Living

poems for strength

Pain is not poetic
It’s the thing that triggers your stimulus
That tells you to make art out of your misery
So whatever I write in my moments of melancholy are not that of the melancholy
But an illustration of my heart & soul in these moments
This is recuperation.
A time to glue back the broken and unhinged
Divide the time between dancing & dying
Laughing & loathing
Kissing & kicking
Whether it be a delicious need for greed or approval from the ones that are not your league
Your expectations that weren’t so great and shattered on the grounds of realism
This a time to show your pain
Be in pain
But don’t let your words be pain.
Pain is the reason.
But pain is not the poetry.
