What Pain (Poetry)

Updated: Dec 15, 2019

Greetings friend! This is an original poem meant for music, addressing my experiences in life, love, wisdom and enlightenment. May it tell you a little about me, while also inspiring the love in us all.


Displaced, Defunct, Delusional.

Three words that might describe me

A pain in the ass, But at least I’ve got class

Though a pain I might very well be

Since I was born I’ve had pain

Lost my parents at five

They just up and died.

Now it’s just me hanging around.


Pain? What pain?

From the body to the brain

I’ve got pain.

But it’s not what you’ve got

It’s what you have not

That truly causes you pain


Once as a teen

You’d think it a dream

But no, still more pain

Just after ten I was hit once again

But this time by a classy Cadillac


At the great Pearly Gates

I was pulled back quite late

And didn’t finish my chat with God.

I awoke on a slab

Which was really a drag

As my pain returned once again.


Pain? What pain?

From the body to the brain

I’ve got pain.

But it’s not what you’ve got

It’s what you have not

That truly causes you pain


So when I almost lost my leg

I had to learn how to walk again

They filled me with pills

And said “You’ve got this”

So I returned to people again


But something had changed

Was it the pain?

Or was it the pain of not knowing?

Try though I might

I never could fight

The pain that just kept growing


Pain? What pain?

From the body to the brain

I’ve got pain.

But it’s not what you’ve got

It’s what you have not

That truly causes you pain


It’s not what you’ve got

It’s what you have not

That truly causes the pain


Now I have love

Now I have family

Do I still have pain?

You know it!


But now that you know,

Together we grow

And the pain becomes more bearable
