    “An Ode to Pain” Poem by Lavinia Grandt

    It is known that the joys of life

    Are overshadowed by the pains

    For what good is your happiness

    If it all ends in your despair?


    But I propose, to those heavy hearted,

    What good is joy to you

    If there is no pain?


    Your pleasure is built off the other,

    Off the tragedy you’ve endured

    Yes, you are hurt, and you feel pain,

    But that makes your triumph even sweeter


    Your pain is your story

    Your tears are your strength

    And you are not alone
