The Essence of Pain

Updated on August 4, 2017

Pain has no creed, color or race.

Death its sister, torture its date.

Allergic to love, addicted to hate.

Self doubt, broken hearts it will leave in its wake.

Our pain becomes the eternal fire

which attacks our hearts,

minds and souls.

Blocking our dreams and destroying

our goals.

Until we search within ourselves,

bridging the gap between heaven and hell.

Rising above its poisonous grip.

Regaining our pride and our will to live.

The essence of pain yes curable at best,

But remember it’s up to you

to pass that test. Never give up!
