How I Beat the Living Hell Out of Suffering and Made It My Bitch


So, I am going to participate in NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) here on the blog: write a poem a day for the month of April.

It’s exactly midnight as I’m posting this, but I really did write it on 1 April. 😉

Here’s today’s poem:


From destruction, creation

Tearing apart to start again

From the hurt, comes the pleasure

Ecstasy of growing pains

Never knowing when you’re learning

Or just masochistic, until it’s over

Then the light shines in the darkness

And you know why you put it out in the first place.

    “Never knowing when you’re learning” . . .I’ve learned that sometimes the journey we think we are on… Is not the journey we are on! Love your poetry. I might have to share some of my soul poetry on my blog this month. Thanks for stopping by my blog! You rock the poetry, girlfriend!
