Pain like a name

Like a name we all bare
A constant friend our hearts regret
He is a giant we seldom win, unfair,
A grief producing machine, each man gets

A friend making everyday things
Our craving miracles, and each peculiar name
Our life's lessons, that kings
travel afar to obliterate these silent shame

But man must not learn the hard way
Nor should joy be a seldom victory of pain
Or all essence he throws away
Then order lost it's again

If the rich do cry, and the poor 
Still survives, this world man must endure

    Pain eventually heals but the lessons learned always stay. Love your verse.

    The American Indian believes that life is a circle. Everything always comes back. We are born, we live and during our lifetime we try to live and be the best we can be because in so doing we send out either good or bad medicine into the lives of others. Whatever we send out returns sooner or later. When we die we leave behind this earthly body to return to the Creator and then we receive the reward awaiting us for the way we have lived our lives on earth. Good write here. God Bless, JB

    Hi new friend! There is a concept in biology called homeostasis which means all organizms strive constantly to maintain balance within their systems and as the curve of the infinity sign is rounded or the horizontal level sways up & down the results are not good or bad [only man uses these terms] they simply are mechanizms for maintaining balance! We live within the body of the LARGEST organizm there is [my opinion here] God. Within a healthy organizm there must be both creation and destruction

    Yes, I think even the luckiest of us must experience pain, some a lot more than others. The world is very strange!!

    Great write my friend. You have touched a universal feeling and have dealt very aptly with such a sensitive topic. No one on earth can boast to overcome this word Pain and thank you for your kind and precious comments and advice. I have not written for any contest but I would see if I can submit it as an entry. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra... Ingibo Benson
