    The Pain Of Life

    Ugh. Life. It is ******* painful! What is the point really. I am not sure there is one, though sometimes I feel sure and I just don’t particularly like the conclusion i’ve come to. Cuz its simply that the pain is as necessary as anything in this life. Sometimes I wonder if...
