Testing...One, Two, Infinity...

Testing...One, Two, Infinity...

A Poem by Mason
"

A response to Miharu's "Goodbye, Matthew." I highly recommend it. The second stanza makes more sense if you've read it.

"
From life's worst experiences,
We must manage to salvage all that we can;
Strength,
Honor,
Dignity,
Virtue.

Though HE tore you down,
He pulled you up.

Life is a strange mistress.
"Unforgiving,"
Some would say,
But it serves to teach us.

Life does not work for us:
It works against us.

We must learn to fight the current
that is life's hardships,
and at least reach shore
or else be swept away and forgotten.

A lucky few find themselves swimming up waterfalls,
but to just survive life is a miracle in its own right.

You survived this obstacle.
Do just as well with the ones
that are sure to follow.

Author's Note

Cleaned this up a bit. It's really upsetting to me that I can't find Miharu's "Goodbye Matthew" anywhere. I desperately wanted to read it again.

... this is inspiring and comforting ... and it would have take a lot of skill to write this without making it sound didactic ... it's so conversational and contemporary ... and it lingers and lingers ... these are my favourite lines ...
