Life Is Pain

Hand spot

Sometimes, you stab your­self in the hand with a point, but it’s not sharp enough to break the skin.

Sometimes, the blood comes to the sur­face, and this is as much of your­self as you can show the world.

Sometimes, the pave­ment is cov­ered in snow out­side, and you can dri­ve over 100kph in one spot before the trac­tion kicks in.

Sometimes, you scare your­self with your reck­less­ness.

Sometimes, you real­ize that life is pain.

Sometimes, you have noth­ing left but numb­ness and resolve.


  1. The good thing about set­backs is if you can endure them you come out a stronger man… or so the cliche goes.

    • I’ll def­i­nite­ly be stronger when this is all over.

  2. The one thing nice about your reac­tion to the dif­fi­cul­ties you encounter is that I nev­er fear you’re going to explode and dis­ap­pear like a drum­mer from a met­al band, or jump off a roof with an umbrel­la, or try to wipe out half of town from a tow­er with a shot­gun.

    I like that about you.

    • Not when I have a place to write, at least. Otherwise, who knows how I’d lash out.
