With great suffering comes remarkable insight
One need not seek it, for it is inevitable
Perhaps never constant, yet always an unyielding teacher
It penetrates the entire being,
demands much from the soul,
taxes the intellect,
launches the heart on a seesaw journey

This just explained a few things to me as to why I am the way I am.. Thank you for this post!

You are quite welcome!
To endure is the disposition of the sage.

I needed to read this tonite. Thank s for the reminder that struggle is progress

I wrote this one last week. I have had medical issues, both physical and mental, these past few years, and I have come to the conclusion that life is not always easy, and suffering is a good reminder just how good life can be, one day at a time.

At the end of things
Infinity is key
For once we meet this force
All will fail
And the core will remain
We will rebuild what's left
And from this
We will be immortal
