Pain and Poetry

by Kimberly Inglis

The best works are written when you experience the most pain

Pain leaves you vulnerable

Vulnerability makes you open

Openness dispels lies

Lying covers the truth

Truth leads you to acceptance

Acceptance of the pain you experience

Experience tells you it’s only for a moment

A moment can sometimes feel like too long

Longing for it to all be over

Over yet another obstacle

Obstacles somehow bring out the best

And so

The best works are written when we experience the most pain
