Levels of Pain

Levels of pain 

Pain at a level of one
It’s mild and almost none

Some pain levels can match
Like a splinter and a scratch

A fall or a broken bone
Can make a person yell or moan 

If you gain some weight
That can be a painful state

Even at the level of a ten
Pain differs between women and men

The death of a love has tears
That’s the worst and can last many years
