Poem: Pain Isn’t

pain.jpg

Pain is not like a movie, no one likes to watch and there’s no emergency exit.
It’s easy to confuse the two because pain is drama and conflict.

Pain is not like a sword, it doesn’t protect you and you can’t control it.
It’s easy to confuse the two because pain is sharp and cuts deep.

Pain is not like a library, it doesn’t have all the answers and it’s not organized.
It’s easy to confuse the two because pain likes it when you don’t talk.

Pain is not like sleep, there is no rest and you don’t feel refreshed the next day.
It’s easy to confuse the two because pain is a nightmare.

Pain is not like a good fight, it doesn’t make you feel alive.
It’s easy to confuse the two because, in the end, someone loses.

Pain is like being alone
Pain is like not saying goodbye
Pain is like crying in the rain
Pain is like an empty room
Pain is like being forgotten
Pain is like not having a reason to get out of bed
Pain is hard to describe

  2. I think pain is exposing one to the truth. One does not have to be afraid MHO. You are loved and always will be. This is not a dream I don’t think!!

  3. I have always liked this quote:

    Even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.
    Aeschylus

  4. That is so sobering! Not my will but thy will. MHO the God I’m thinking of does not lie. Nevertheless I have noticed that what I take trouble about when I dream isn’t the same as when I’m awake. So be it.
