A coward dies a million times. A courageous man only dies once.


It's so true how I repeat it,
But never once comprehend it
I admit, but only outwardly
And I refuse to say the jinxed words
Lest, superstition comes true.
Every time I dream
Reality seems to slip into a daze
Because the torment and bliss
Of the dream, leaves life to be numb,
Meaningless and without flavour
Don't you see? No matter how
Many times I say I hate it,
I know that I want it to be there
To forever hurt and heal and open the wounds
Why? I wish you could tell me
Because it seems that I have long been
Searching for the answer, but
My heart refuses to listen and
My mind refuses to explain.


The author's comments:
A person is far more complicated than what you can see. There are layers. There is pain and happiness. Both emotions mould the person and make them who they are, so you can't truly hate the pain, especially if you learn to live with it. Then, it is simply something to be borne.
