Sharing Pain

Pain fills this universal

In pain we find that we are not invincible 

The strongest are always in pain

They just never complain

Or let others in on their pain

To be in pain is considered weakness

Something never to be shown

We carry our demons all alone

That is a burden we choose to bare

Not something we want to share

The world is pain and that has made us cynical 

Negativity fills and occupies or minds

We push through those dangerous thoughts

 I can’t give into those nightmares

It’s the pain that has made us who we are.

The pain has become a part of us.

It is us, without the pain we wouldn’t be the same person

Sometimes we yearn for physical pain 

To remind us that other pain exists.

I survived my pain

I can’t say the same for some of my brothers.
