Profound Stepping Stones

Even at 71
Seems i cannot
Fnd the one
Why...?
No such one exists
From beginning
Evolution of humankind  
Of pure animal instinct  
We were born  
Love an invention in time
Originally was survival  
That caused us to be
 
Pain is inevitable  
A necessary part  
Of the struggle  
Profound Stepping Stones
In our journey
Of this thing
We call love
Pain cannot
Be eliminated
 
Therefore...
Live it
Embrace it
Analyze it
Become it
Personal growth
And accountability  
Not pain relief  
But pain acceptance  
Is the key
