I wake up to the sunshine and the pain.
The sunshine warms my soul,
the pain letís me know Iím still alive.
(Iím grateful for the pain.)
Breakfast; morphine and Percoset,
warming the body
easing the pain,
thanks to modern medicine.

Coffee and Combivent
kick starts ambition.
Now I feel well enough,
to rest a while,
then, with opened lungs,
I take a deep breath
and move to my computer.

Each day is pretty much the same
as the day before,
still, Iím grateful for each day, and
Iím grateful for the pain.

All that is necessary for the forces of evil to win the world is for enough good men to do nothing...Edmund Burke

Pain surely lets you know you are alive...just ask my back, knees, and hips...and my long ago broken ankle that has now become my own special weather indicator....Kacee

Many times we relate to pain more than anything else. Pain seems to stay with us. Thanks for posting this one.

Not a fan
But i appreciate the poem. Though it isn't one of the oh-my-god poems or shit-this-shit-is-true poems for me, I still feel connected to it in an odd way.
