The heart is the engine
Of the body
The flesh is the bonnet
Over the engine
The blood is the oil
That is lifesaving
Your hormones are the bus stops
Over that bumpy road
That is: life.
Your heart is the centre of your body
Your nose gave you over
And handed you to the grip of dust and soot
Your lungs are the straws to refreshment:
Life without pain.
Life without pain awaits you
It is on the next bus stop for you to encounter
I feel your pain
