Insistence

Looking through the poems I wrote on my laptop, this one jumps out as one that doesn't give away any secrets I'd rather were kept. More importantly, I like the way it flows. It was written last August.

The sonnet itself was wrriten as a response to the question "Because of course I could have given you all the warnings in the world, but answer me this: Would you have ended it to protect yourself? Would you have been any less hurt if it went wrong?"

All lives are filled with misery and pain.
Although from time to time we might feel joy
'tis rare and special. Pain does not destroy
our happiness, although it does constrain
and draw the bounds -- No, joy has not free rein
to leap and frolic so throughout a life,
but must be given edges, as a knife
is used to split the meat and bone in twain.
With all the warnings in the world what would
I do? Would I have any less been hurt?
a question once proposed I must subvert
(discussing this I'm oft misunderstood.)
Despite what others do, I must assert
that pain can be accepted for the good.
