Invisible pain!

<br />
A question I would ask is why<br />
pain&rsquo;s not apparent to the eye?<br />
Maybe we can see the signs<br />
within demeanour&rsquo;s steep declines.<br />
<br />
But yet we cannot see the pain<br />
that we get time and again.<br />
It seems to be invisible<br />
and therefore not cognizable.<br />
<br />
Our pain is felt so deep inside<br />
that from all others it can hide.<br />
So other people may not see<br />
all the pain that swells in me.<br />
<br />
I find it mildly quizzical<br />
when pain&#39;s no longerphysical.<br />
For very often I will find<br />
some of the pain is in my mind.<br />
<br />
This type of pain tends to perplex<br />
as it&rsquo;s confusing and complex.<br />
Especially when it&rsquo;s in the mix<br />
with all those pains we cannot fix.<br />
<br />
There are moments humans can<br />
seem so cruel to fellow man.<br />
Their insight&rsquo;s mighty primitive<br />
and they are quite insensitive.<br />
<br />
It seems that humans have evolved<br />
so they don&rsquo;t want to be involved.<br />
They have developed a belief<br />
that means avoiding pain and grief.<br />
<br />
So sometimes they will say and do<br />
some horrid things to me and you.<br />
When this exasperates your brain<br />
then it exacerbates the pain.<br />

Hi Bill. I saw you referenced your poem on Debra's post. You really hit the nail on the head here. If you are new to this site, welcome. I hope it provides you with the encouragement and inspiration you need. Stay strong and know we are out here for you and each other. Tamarah

Hello Tamarah. Thank you so much for your comments and encouragement. Debra's post was particularly pertinent in illuminating some of the emotional elements that sometimes get lost in the struggle to survive on a daily basis. The replies to her post from others also highlight the relevance of the opportunities to vent-a-rant with people who understyand the nature of the subject matter. It also points up the tremendous support that a site such as this can offer to those who might otherwise be socially isolated even amongst their own family and friends. I only hope that my rhyming verses can contribute positively to the discussions and be of some small use to some of the readers. Best wishes Bill
