The past is filled with pain and suffering, but all is well if you have fun living.

One, two, three, four,
you won't hurt me anymore!

You're at an amusement park.

Your friend's father died recently.


and her,

and so many other friends

are there,

with you,

trying to cheer her up.

She isn't being very cooperative.

She's sniffling

and crying,

and moaning

and lying -

I feel great.

I'm okay.

I don't need anything.

But then,

then you see that one ride,

the huge,



incredibly fast ride.

You know how to cheer up your friend.

You cover their eyes,

and lead them to the entrance of the ride.

You slowly guide them into a seat.

The ride starts.

You chug away,



You reach the top

of the highest peak

on the ride.

You take your hands

off her eyes.

She looks.

She sees.

She gasps.

The sheer height,

the warmth of the sun,

the rushing wind

makes her smile

like nothing before.

When the ride is over,

she looks into your eyes.

You know that she knows -

pain doesn't go away;

pain can't be eliminated;

pain can get worse;

but you can overcome it.

You know that she knows -

pain is just weakness leaving the body.

If you can overcome that

without losing your heart

yes? no? i'm not sure anymore

...I can't believe you linked The Morning Hunter.

But I suppose it fits, though it's a tad optimistic, even for me.

I love that song. XD

:( Please be okay, Schrody. I don't think I could live with myself if we lost your gloriously strange, wonderfulness.

Schrödinger said...

I'm fine, I just...I'll be fine. I have all of you.

Maurice said...

I love you.

Thank you.

Schrödinger said...

You're so welcome.

Kay said...

That was beautiful.

Schrödinger said...

Thank you.

Elaine said...

You're mad and wonderful and you've given us hope, because you remind us of how to smile. Stay safe.
