Life is full of pain
This too will pass on our way
Our joy arises

Note: This poem was both inspired, written and published for the first time on my blog today, the 5th of November 2018. I was inspired during the watching a television production of a future apocalyptic world in which the characters endure such great suffering and despair and yet continue to survive in the hope of creating a better future. The human dilemma in a nut shell. Ever persistent and resilient we are within our humanity.
I wrote this poem in the haiku style of poetry which can be short of words yet big in meaning. I believe that this form leads the mind to it's own unique insights of the same theme.
