pain fosters courage

, originally uploaded by froze by desire.

eventually, it’ll break your heart

it’ll rip you wide open, crawl
up into your ribcage, root through
your chest, rush like lightning
through your veins, settle deep
into your soul, it will make you
question everything

but you must answer it

sit with it, revel in it even,
because pain fosters courage
& without courage
you will never
wholly experience
the fullness
of life
