The State of the Nation: Various Levels of Pain

By Charles Marshall, Marines

Writing Type: Poem

By Charles Marshall
VA Medical Center--Richmond, VA

Some physical pain can be experienced in the brain.
But brain pain can cause you to go insane.
Emotional pain can leave you crying.
But spiritual pain can start the process of dying.
 
Nerve pain will definitely leave you shaking,
leaving you feeling unstable and earth-quaking.
Heart pain can leave you sad and disconnected,
putting you in a place where God can't be reflected.

Fear pain can put you so far behind.
Oh, God does not give us a spirit of fear,
but of power, of love and of a sound mind.

Psychological pain can put us in a spin.
So study to show yourself
approved unto God. Workmen
need not be ashamed,
rightly divining the word of truth.

Moral pain will kill a nation,
and subject the next generation
with unresolved relations.
Political pain will bring us no gain,
and put us in a divided lifestyle
that the reprobate mind cannot maintain.

Disease--the pain can leave us with Covid-19,
a pandemic that this world has never seen.

The battles have been raging
and the fight has been fought.
Whose fault is it when the stupidity
has all been caught?
