WHAT IS PAIN? by Teresa Steading

What is pain, O do you know?
I get it when it snows
And when it rains and in sunshine
Seems I get it all the time.

No matter what the weather here
The pain rains down as thru the air
In legs and hips and head above
Just like a truck hit me, my love!

Can't stand to move or see or hear
Pain really kicks me in the rear!
But I have just one thing to say
Pain ~ You can't make me give up today!

I love this poem. It is so true and you made it so light hearted. I find that at times I have to tease and laugh at myself and my fibro. It makes it less depressing.
Also, thank you for commenting on my blog and for the advise.

Laurie, Thanks for your comments. I'm glad you liked the poem. I find that sometimes you have to make fun of this illness we have because if you don't, you'll end up crying all the time! That always reminds me of the Bible verse, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine." I think laughing really does make you feel better. Hope you're having a good day.
