it’s easier to hate than to adore
it’s easier to sit than to explore
it’s easier to dismiss than to learn
it’s easier to take than to earn

it’s easier to fail than to succeed
it’s easier to rest than to achieve
it’s easier to settle than to dream
it’s easier to bleed than to heal

it’s easier to destroy than to build
it’s easier to be dumb than be skilled
it’s easier to despise than to forgive
it’s easier to die, than to live

the part that makes existence cruel,
the irony of life, the defining rule:

is this:

the harder paths teach us more about ourselves.
the most difficult choices yield the greatest results.
