PAIN- THE FOUR LETTER WORD:
Brings so much hurt.
Enemy of Happiness, makes life miserable.
Feels like a million spears through the heart,
A thousand needles through the vein.
It roars in like a monstrous storm when least expected,
Washing away even the tiniest glimmer of hope.
Sure, Love is an equally strong and powerful feeling.
But, at least love doesn’t break the spirit and take away the will to go on.

There’s no pain that’s too small to be forgotten.
Just like all the good memories and feelings we cherish, we hold on to the pain as well.
Pain might fade away with time but it’s never forgotten.
Everything from a bee sting to a scrape on the knee;
And from a break up to a loss of a loved one.
None of it can be forgotten.
Sure the depth of pain might be different depending on the circumstances.
But, it hurts all the same.

Pain-the four letter word
Brings so much hurt.
Killer of Joy, bully of Peace.
Makes life a living hell.
Feels like a losing battle,
Like a journey down hill into darkness.
It’s so huge that it engulfs the soul in sorrow.

Pain-the four letter word,
Pierces through the heart,
Breaks it into a million pieces.
Shatters dreams, dims hope.
Tests our faith and crushes the spirit.
Pain-the four letter word,
Prince of tears, author of heart-ache,
When will your reign end?
