"We through pain until we to learn

through ."

thing is,

that some people hold on to pain like an old friend,

and they cannot tell the difference

between the open that lifts up,

and the back hand that beats down.

I pray to not be that .

And I pray that I would rather be

a soul that is open to receive

and express all the and the of this life,

than the most successful

and renowned professional

that sold his soul and trampled

over the remains of others.

~The of Buddha~
