Moral Lesson For Today - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

if one knows
the reason for pain
one can endure it
for days

for a lifetime
the pain becomes nothing
but a lifestyle

is an offering
and the pain is taken away

in understanding the meaning of its source
the reason of its existence

one misses it like a long lost friend
and once when you meet it again
you hug it
you shed tears of Joy
and when it leaves
you want to be with it
you ask that you join it in its lone journey
but you are refused
for pain has its own life too
its own span

then you take pride in this understanding
you feel like you are god
crucified and redeemed
whole and strong.
