  • I am cut; it hurts. I do bleed. Although I don't show it. I don't believe in forwarding pain. I consume the negativity. I can heal, I know I can. I have healed from worse; but can others?

    I take the weight of others sufferings on myself.
    Better to suffer than to have others suffer.

    I know pain, I've lived with it; thrived in it.
    I find every painful area and explore,
    But do others?

    In this consumption, I forward
    Positivity, Growth, Strength.
    I am a pillar, I am a cornerstone.
    That's what others need; that will help them be strong.
    And yet they hurt.
    Ever more, ever deeper, they hurt.
    hurt people hurt people
    hurt people hurt me.

    I am cut once again; again I bleed.
    Again I heal.
    The cycle continues.
    No one wants to suffer, few can handle it.
    But I can.
    And all I emit is positivity;
    using these wounds to learn
    using these wounds to grow

    life is a lesson
    pain and hardship are its teachers.
    I learn for others; I learn because of
    instead of
    I grow
    but do they

    They lash out in pain and I consume
    returning only positivity
    I grow
    but do they
    do I enhance their life
    make them better
    help them realize a more positive existence

    am I a hindrance
    do I cause pain
    hurt people hurt people
    am I hurt?
