Poem


PAIN, PAIN, GO AWAY

By Mary Johnson, Army

Writing Type: Poem

Pain has no feelings,
No conscience, no concern,
And cares not of the consequences,
Of how its sting does burn.
Pain hears no pleads,
No words to block its way,
And will not give answers,
To anything you say.
Pain has no sympathy
To soothe the aching heart,
It's gone before you know it,
And leaves us torn apart.
Pain knows not the depth
Of the trouble it relays,
And cares not the length
Of how long it stays.
Pain has no direction,
Has no eyes to see.
Asks not what our names are,
Before it makes its flee.
Pain you are not welcome here
I say to you once more.
I need more time for mending
You've been here once before.
