POEMS









I’ve often pondered on the way,

some people cope with life’s melee.

They do so well considering

all their pain and suffering.


Throughout my life I’ve had it rough,

so I have always suffered stuff.

I’ve had to bear the brunt of pain,

both in my body and my brain.


The damage to our body parts

feels not so bad as in our hearts.

Broken bones and scars will heal,

but that’s not so with how we feel.


Some might think I’m brave or bold,

because I have a high threshold.

And this is something I can claim

with pain inflicted on my frame.


For I can cope with injury

and even major surgery.

Or, at least to some degree,

without the pain affecting me.


Yet I cannot stand the notion

of suffering with my emotion.

With many of my incidents,

emotions would take precedence.


They’ve been grabbing me all my life.

Jabbing and stabbing like a knife.

Within my mind emotion springs,

even with the little things.


I cannot seem to keep control

over those matters of the soul.

Emotions are my weakest spot,

and so I suffer quite a lot.
