    this is wonderful, will quote it as well


  3. Oh, there is something about these lines. Pleasure in pain, and things like that. Why do we let it get the better of us? Why wouldn’t it just go away like that, instead of festering within.

      That is what this poem is about; it reminds us that escaping is no way to deal with pain or life. Sometimes we must stay with our suffering and not fight it because that IS the way. What makes us believe that we will heal overnight when not even a papercut wound heals instantly? The wound is important. Pay attention to it and learn how not to be wounded again.


      1. Wow! Now when you say it like that, it makes so much more sense. Perhaps the enduring SHALL teach how not to get wounded again. I am banking on that. 🙂
