Suffering Well to Live in Joy

Wanna write my own story sometimes
Leave out the sad
Make it all happy
Erase the chapters where things turn bad
Leave off the parts where human frailty causes suffering and pain
Get to that fairy tale ending without all the trouble and strain
Letting life unfold in dramatic detail is unnerving, suspenseful,
The struggle is real
After bitter they say can come sweet
If you root out the feelings that seek to take you underneath
No ones life is in their own control
No matter how much money or power or beauty they hold
A wonderful life means learning to suffer well
To overcome the many negatives common to all
Even if we could fully manage
ourselves
Do every little thing perfect
We can never do that to anyone else
Our lives depend on relationships
That live and breathe
Some die, or change or fail miserably
Living in Joy and Peace requires rebound and commitment to release
Being able to let go, let God, get on, not give up
It takes skill and love, being both tender and tough
No one can write their tale end to beginning
The plot twists will come just from living
