“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”
― David Richo
Some days are better than others and I often wonder why
yesterday was agony and today- barely a sigh
And when relief from this darkness arrives
I ‘m grateful I’m here and still alive
To experience these intense lows and highs
For without the lows that happen in life
and along with them the inevitable strife
How would I recognize joy when it comes
cloaked in the shadow of pain’s disguise?
