I Am Feeling

Directly

Correlates

The Degree of

Pain

I Endured

Living

A Life

Tormented

Through

Pain of

The Past

Pain of

The Past

Provides

One With

Contrast &

Awareness to

See &

Feel &

Know

Beauty

Withing &

All Things

Around

Life

Lived

Abundant With

Greatness &

Measured By

Spectrum of Success

Doesn’t Satisfy

Falls Short of

One’s

Search &

Desire for

More

It Is

Now

I Am

Feeling

Grateful &

Appreciate

Humbled

Through

The Wounded

Parts of Self &

Betrayal

Beyond

The Losses &

The Pain of

The Past

The Moments

It Is

Here & Now

I Am

Appreciative

Overwhelmed with

Gratitude for

The Painful Moments

Gifting

The Contrast to

See &

Feel

More Profound
