“The most valuable moments and experiences that life has to offer are found only along its most treacherous paths.”
— Augusten Burroughs

 

I am grateful
for the hard times
the roads with naught but bends
the three in the morning loneliness
where it seemed I had no friends
for those are the moments
when I took stock
and learned to trust myself
The universe looking out for me
the future distant shelf
and time in which I could
discover who I was
each lesson being hard won
learning my own laws
Easy times are not the times
to analyze or reflect
They are meant to enjoy
treasure and deflect
the memories of pain
of terror and of shame
the times in which we grow most
the times in which we almost
come to understand it all
— G A Rosenberg
