Pain is physicalIt is counter

Pain is physical

It is counter productive to love, a conclusion in the mental

When Pain refuses to try again, Love breaks the deadlock

When Pain instigates the feud between man and fear, Love encourages boldness


And so, when Pain quickened my impending resolution to stop trying to heal

To embrace defeat

To consider retreat

And to drop the book


I consolidated my losses, and Love sparked the push in my mind

To fight onward

To march forward

And to use the pen
