Pain is a good thing. The blood dripping down your fingertips is a good sign.
It reminds you that you’re still human.
It reminds you you’ve still got something to lose.
The sorrow you’re in, the tears running down your cheeks are an assurance,
That you’ve truly loved,
And your heart isn’t dying.
Learn to cherish the pain, the dull ache in your chest;
Because they are what makes
The shadows by which we see the light.
