Random Poem:

how can't you handle the pain

Old men are suppose to be seen dead,
hearts are meant to be given and received battered,
and laughs are meant to travel into the suicidal, depressed conscious.
Most of all,
old heart's laugh in the face of the end
because they learn to know: living never began at the start.
