Pain

pain fast approaches

crashing into you

ripping all asunder

pulling it in close

embracing, holding

desperately trying

to keep all the broken pieces

together

.......

clinging not ignoring

desperately hoping to transform

........

pain to compassion

anger into love

fear into kindness

.......

needing

positive energy to sustain

through the travails and tempest

that assail on this journey

Some Kind of Pain

oh that

exquisite beautiful tragedy

giving birth to

amazing creativity

…..

nobody feels any pain

nobody feels any joy

…….

to feel joy

you must first experience pain

…….

or is it

the other way round?
