great people aren’t made through well adjusted social interactions
and when I get frustrated I just think
this is just shaping me more
my temperament and my strength
and what isn’t killing me is only making me stranger
I’m just suddenly missing all that gratitude
that’s supposed to come along with grand realizations
I have a knowing
and I make it my driving force
loneliness has it perks
the pain isn’t just going to go away
so the best I can manage is
to make it into something beautiful
