“When most people ‘hit a brick wall’, they turn left, Poets turn Write.” ‘Nobody’, living on the Isle of Cyclops

For so long a time, years now, Pain has been My Closest Companion.
I’ve not been able to “Fight” Pain; or Pray, Cry or Demand it to “Be Gone!”
Finally! I’ve Accepted it for this moment, and the next….
as my Closest and most Faithful Companion.

I Could Banish Pain. I Would Banish it, even the Cause of it!
…I Cannot..so we’ve become Friends of Necessity.
Comrades of Suffering, Ever Present with one another.

Do you think me Insane to accept such a “Terrible Alliance”?
No, I am not. Not any longer, now I’ve given up the Fruitless Battle.

You see, there is much Goodness that could End my Pain and it’s Cause.
Yet, Woe am I to live in a Society where Only the Rich can Own and Claim such Goodness….. For Themselves…

….and They only Share on a Whim of Self Gratification called PROFIT.
