On Pain No Pain

Take the Morphine,

Ease the Pain…

That merely befuddles, clouds the Brain!!!

 

Do not take It,

Fills the Tear…

That merely intimates as pain Endears!!!

 

The third way is even far less Easy,

Look up above,

That through prayer He sees Thee!!!

 

But not to ask for one’s selfish Needs,

But in agony,

Pray for grace to aid other’s Pleads!!!

 

And in so doing relentless pain Subsides,

Just one Moment,

As they cease their laments their cries!!!

 

And when pain returns compelled am I to smile through Sob,

That in Agony,

I can yet still do my Job!!!
