Suffering can do that to you. We're kicked jolted and shoved into new realities; we would have never brought about ourselves. We are forced to imagine a new future because the one we were planning is gone.
(My life could no longer be what it used to be...)
I could be:
bitter or better
closed or open
more ignorant or more aware.
Because there is no solution in fear
In me there is greatness, courage, desire,
compassion, loyalty and love.
And sometimes it takes suffering to get at it.
