Dr. Seuss Wearing Black Eyeliner and a Corset

Remember in all of your raging and strife
That hurting is often the main theme of life

Oh, we will cry fiercely against death and shout
Spilling hot blood, tearing fingernails out

Because, we claim later, there’s beauty and pleasure
As though they each came in fair, equal measure

As though we shall not all one day release
life, love, and promise to make agony cease

And this knowledge of ending can set our hearts free
But, it’s a gentle, wise thing, not so easy to see

I’m sorry if this makes you feel weak, sad, or small
I speak just for myself, and for you, and us all
