PAIN

 

Pain 

 

Pain can be a friend or foe

Pain can swallow the heart in tow

Pain can vacum all joy

Pain can sorrow truly employ

 

Shall pain take away from us

Shall pain entertain a cuss

Shall pain devour the will to choose

Shall pain evaluate a win or lose

 

Or shant we take pain by the hand

And utilise it at our demand

To look within and ponder the heart

Daring to strip the pain apart

 

Pain can be a wondrous thing

Pain can blossom about to bring

Something we have that we know not existed

To take hold and run as one not enlisted

 

Thus shall we view pain as a friend

To demolish defeat and build victory to mend

Therefore, ceasing pain from being a foe

Rather a means for one to somehow embrace and grow.

    These two lines provoked my mind to think beyond your beautiful words.
    Thank you.
