In Good Company

        In Good Company
Pain Is a guest
It has a temporary sit
At my table.
It sits with an overwhelming 
confidence.
Grief invited himself in without 
invitation,
Then I invited sorrow.
Misery entered my house like a 
thief.
I called them to my table,
Soon I was in a good company
We sat and drank whiskey
As spoke  about social issues

I said...
Pour me a drink
A drink of sorrow
I shall not speak 
About tommorow

Then it was time for them to 
leave,
They walked with a 
disappointment.

Because my being was  joy!

Goodbye to all the shallow 
friends
Pain is a gift
And life is a just a test
