To Suffer — Poetry — Headless Now

To suffer:

it’s about not wanting to suffer, coming to just a few basic things — the ease of breath, to have the needs of life met, and yes to have love and know a true connection. Philosophy takes a shift with these concerns, no longer the drive to find a certain truth, or reality exposed in a final find.

sometimes a single, clean breath is enough.
