Passion behind suffering

Suffering isn’t what we think our lives should be about

Holding back tears to show joy like the rain in the clouds

In this we tend to be blind to the greatness pain builds in us

While being blind it builds up anger, exhaustion, and distrust

Not realizing the discovery of a new power behind the pain endured

Whether you lose someone, yourself, or you’re shattered to pieces; to your heart it feels like there is no cure

However, holding on to this pain and still being able to get up everyday is an unrealized strength

Life is pain we learn our biggest lessons in this hurt but it is only shown later in a time length

As we proceed what doesn’t break us makes us stronger creating the passion we need

To fulfill the dreams and goals we set out to accomplish with nothing to impede

Our pain may never go away but let this be the reminder to keep on going

Like a farmer looking to make a profit and feed his family he keeps on sowing

You’ve made it this far turn around and see to show how close you are to where you
want to be

Use that pain turned into passion to open the doors to the next chapters of life like a key
