Conquering Pain

Conquering Pain (Through Mental Toughness) Written: by Miracle Man 10-9-2019 I try not acknowledging that nemesis pain, I view pain as a temporary irritation. I won’t surrender, letting it become my bane, Unless brought on by some ablation. Any lacerations, I’ve always viewed as minor, Whether stapled, sutured, glued or such. Though some have produced a dandy shiner, I’m not accident prone nor am I a soft touch. From a seven hour stay in the ER I Just came, For my eleventh sew, staple job on my head alone. Each scar tells a story that’s never the same, My twenty six scars began long before grown. If hospital administered on an irregular basis, Pills become my crutch for temporary relief. I find pain a frame of mind in most cases, And I avoid the road that might lead to grief. I’ve seen a lot of days and some have been rough, And a few of them has brought some scorch. But if your like a Pit Bull who thinks he’s tough, You won’t let fear keep you tied to the porch.
