The Suffer Buffer - Poem by David Darbyshire

I don't know for sure
try to Endure
I do not want to suffer
need a Buffer

like a boxers glove
to ease the blow
or even still
a strong pain pill

don't want to suffocate
didn't need to freeze
don't want a gag
why this, I receive?

what can I enjoy?
I need to shout
or a mouthful of dirt
I spit it out

I hate to suffer
cause the pain, I can't swallow
I need a buffer
can't handle the sorrow

    You know, pain (physical/emotional/spiritual) often feels like a mouthful of dirt... We all need a buffer sometimes. Well-said, friend Dave. Keep rising above it... Esther (Report) Reply
