Pain . sharp
Pain.. sharpens words
Pain… sharpens the words, brings things into focus
Pain…. screams and shouts…pain… turns me inside out…

Pain hunkers down… digs a hole in my soul…
Like a long lost mole… tunneling to and fro…
Pain loves to make itself heard… forever, wrangling to be in front…
Pain… merciless… unbiased… and acute…

The pain from people… oh, what a glee!
I hear you preacher…. Forgive …. And let things be!!
In my head, I agree… but ask my heart, and, it’s a tougher bleed…

Who gives you the right?... to spray upon me?...
Your wretched wickedness…. That bores through me…
Are you so blind... or so unkind?.... that you’re truly unaware…
Of how your words…. Well… whatever….

The preacher says…. Hurt people…. Turn and hurt others…
We keep passing this hurt… back and forth…
like a hot potato….. your turn… to burn…
will we never learn?

The World says…. No pain, no gain….
In the great exchange…
Jesus says…. My pain …. Is your gain…
Here we extinguish the pain…. and finally live in His Gain

I see, you've had your own pain to endure...we all go through painful moments I think...the depth of one's pain can only be measured by the one going through it and can be compared to none else...but we as Christians have a greater hope when we go through these moments...[I lift my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from, My help come from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth...]...and this too shall pass, the sun/Son will shine again in our lives...if we put our hope and trust in Him... :)
