Love Haiku

pain relief haiku

Thanks Jenn for this haiku theme


Strength to embrace life;
In times pain overcomes joy.
A spirit to try.


What is it that keeps you going in a moment of hurt? Well, I don't think that there might be a better answer than faith and love. They are fuel to our soul... and without them your heart turns cold.

You gotta have strength and warmth to be able to live your life, especially after a breakdown. Something to believe in... To get over the horrible feelings that tide you down. A reason to hang on, carry on and feel alive.

Even if the original culprit that caused your pain was love... That might happen too, you know... The cure is still love, not hate. Cause, you gotta at least love yourself than letting negative emotions eat up your heart. As difficult as it seems, doing otherwise is like extinguishing your own soul. That would be a terrible double lose.

The meme basics:

Haiku is simple!
It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively
(a great way to use your fingers!)

I don't create poetry, I create myself,
for me my poems are a way to me.

~Edith Södergran

Keep a poem in your heart.

I hope that when pain overtakes the love, it is only thus for a short moment in time. I would like to believe that love is stronger than any pain.

Well posed...!
