To Suffer is to Live

The future is not a promise, it is a destination
There are no guarantees of success
No equation of victory from determination
We are here, we exist
We suffer
Living is bound with many things
To suffer is certain
So I resist the urge to quit
Because the suffering is not going to stop
Nor change by the rage of anguish
It exists, and so do I
So I am going to endure
Because that is all I have that I can use
To persist

"What is the noble truth of suffering? Birth is suffering, aging is suffering and sorrow and lamentation, pain, grief and despair are suffering." Buddha

“Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.” Buddha
