The Gift – Charmed Chaos

“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?
