PAIN

WE WERE BORN AS KINGS AND QUEENS BUT WE WERE DENIED OF THE THRONES AND RAISED UP LIKE SLAVES WHO DUG COALS IN THE COLD MOSCOW WITH A SELFLESS SOUL WE WERE TOLD THE “P” IN THE PAIN STOOD FOR THEIR “POISONOUS” PAIN THAT PAIN ITS SELF DID NOT KNOW ITS ORIGIN OUR HEARTS BEATS RAPIDLY BUT FAINTLY AND BECAUSE OUR SOUL WERE HOMELESS, FEARS ADOPTED OUR POOR SOULS FEARS PROMISED TO MAKE US KNOW THE MEANING TO THE OTHER ALPHABETS THAT STOOD FOR “PAIN” FEARS TOLD US THAT THE “A” IN THE PAIN STOOD FOR THE “AWE” THAT WILL MAKE YOU WONDER BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT PROMISED ANY LAND LIKE ALICE WE WERE FRIGHTENED WHILES WE WERE FASTING IN OUR FAITH LIKE A ROMAN SISTER WHO LOST HER VIRGINITY TO THE ROMAN FATHER BEFORE MASS FEARS TOLD US THAT THE “I” IN THE PAIN STOOD FOR THE “INSTINCT” THAT WE CONSTANTLY IGNORE BECAUSE WE HAVE BELIEVED THAT THE OPINIONS OF THE OPPRESSORS AS THE GOSPEL TRUTH WE HAVE TO STIMULATE BEFORE WE CAN RELATE THE TEARS FALLING FROM OUR EYES DID NOT STOP FEARS FROM TELLING US THE MEANING OF THE “N” IN THE PAIN, WE WERE TOLD WE WERE “NAIVE” BECAUSE THERE WAS A WAY OUT IN EVERY WAY FOUND BUT WE THOUGHT OTHERWISE I BELIEVE ARE ALL KINGS AND QUEENS IN OUR OWN RIGHT SO WE SHOULD BE WISE WHEN DEALING WITH “PAIN” BECAUSE IT WILL EITHER MAKE YOU OR BREAK YOU.
