Mild suffering serves the purpose of inner-change.
Great suffering serves the purpose of evil,
or just being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Dear God, please,
   Set me free from this hell,
      from these demons after me,
      but if it is your will I suffer,
         then I will suffer happily.

O' suffering,
How joyous!
The Gods shall make ye cry!
O' suffering,
How grand!
The Gods shall make ye die!

If women have to suffer to be beautiful
Then why aren't I a goddess?

I cannot watch you
love another
and feel happiness.

You have all the happiness in the world,
that which I wished upon you
once upon a time.
I loved you,
would have given you everything;
mind,
body,
soul.

I wished you all the happiness in the world,
that which you have,
and I am left with nothing.
I must simply sit here and
suffer,
suffer,
suffer.

We are all diferent people with different though
But in point of our lifes
We all suffer through staff that makes us strong, make us equals

We all suffer in a point of our lives from something called love
#love   #sad   #alone   #people   #all   #suffer  

Death is a cakewalk;
the suffering which precedes it is what we fear.

That the intensity of our society
That shattered and splattered our history
With the blood and sorrow of our humanity
Our family
Makes me weep
Makes me speak grievously
For the evils of hiding our grief
We need to see the suffering
To begin to heal our reality

Suffering
is the landscape
of life.

Hope is
the sustenance
of life.

To avoid suffering
is to avoid life.

Love yourself.

Love other's
even though
they don't
deserve it.

Be gentle
with yourself,
even when utterly
fatigued and
victimized.

Make you life
a poem that
you create
and hold it
close to your
heart.

The best
you can do
is all you can do.

Necessary suffering derives from death encroaching,
the unnecessary obtained from hateful reproaching.
