Cane of Cain

The cane of Cain
So far away from sugar cane
It only shows the sting of pain   
Just like a pin in the ring of crane                
When rain cease to reign                   
Pain only uses the cane we give to it
On the giver or on others                 
It does that at times with fever like a river          
And it could be forever   
On-till you say it's over and say stop           
Pain keeps hopping 
while we keep hoping and hurting              
You just have to set the time.
