Rite of Passage

Life is all about the experience
And the expression
Of feeling.

It keeps dishing out opportunities
To feel
Good and bad.

When that happens
We either come through
Our rite of passage,
Or we smother the opportunity,
Burying it with our chosen painkillers;
Anxiety, addiction, depression....

Push the feelings away
And maybe one day
You won't feel anything.
You can become an inanimate object.

And life will still keep dishing it out
In the hopes that one day
You will learn
What it hopes to teach you.
