Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today. -James Dean

Have you ever truly experienced pain?
The deep-seated pain of loss?
I have only just touched upon it.
I seriously doubt I will ever reach
Further than this, this pain.
I hope no one has to reach into
Further depths then the ones they have
Already, but life works in strange ways.
I guess we just live out our lives
As normal as they usually would be.
Nothing you or I do will ever change how much
Pain you or anyone around you experiences.
Just let it go already! Just give it up!
The result just isn’t good enough.

The author's comments:
I wrote this just because. I was reading "Lord of the Flies", and when I finished, I said to myself, "I need to write a new poem." So I did. 3, in fact.
