Nice use of words. I believe many have this perspective of life. Life can seem like a constant uphill battle, but the wounds heal, and if you can help a friend along the way, all the better. Good write. Would have liked to see some periods, but in the end, I don't think it really needs them.
this is a very intreging write, i like it and the way you seem to allow poetry to take control and be an outlet to many emotions. very short but i feel would not serve be the shame should it be any longer.
