A life…

If I had wanted to feel pain,
if I had wanted to feel hurt,
if I had wanted to feel sorrow,
if I had wanted to feel loss,
I should not have been born.

If I wanted to feel love,
if I wanted to feel joy,
if I wanted to feel hope,
if I wanted to feel happiness,
I should not have been born.

I can but live a life,
a life of strife,
a life of torment,
a life of exhilaration,
a life of wonder,
I can but live.

Original Poem – 20th October 2015
