Escape From Pain

Work at finding the solution
How to escape from your pain
Don't feel fragile and sad
Look for the road of fain
And see how you can learn
To dance merrily in the rain
And learn to overcome when
Afflicted with terrible pain

For life is like a tunnel
That is long and may be dark
But at the end my dear
You'll find the light's mark
So don't give up so easily
Work out and find a way
To lead yourself out of this
And find peace in your day

And learn to help yourself
With the light of courage and care
And know how to win life's test
With strength and deal's fair
And open the door of wisdom
And let miracles enter the gate
Through the help of God's help
In the never ending pave of faith

And when you'll do it all
In the short race of life
You'll learn to escape from pain
And with courage you'll survive
And you'll learn to dance merrily
Under burning sun or in the rain
And will learn to overcome all
Life's endless and terrible pain.

    My prescription:
    Don't take pain killer tablets. Read this poem morning once, midday once, and at bedtime once. You will never get any kind of pain.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
