Pain is a fact of life.
The pain from stubbing your toes or cutting your finger.
The pain of losing a child.
The pain of childbirth and creation.
The pain of losing a loved one.
The pain caused by a loved one.
Unfortunately, you cannot become numb to any of these pains. You just have to hurt and keep walking. Or you have to lay down and let it wash over you.
But you still have to feel the pain, lightning hot, as it slices through you.
And when it has eased, you have to decided to face it or run.
Some days, I just want to run.
Most days, I stand firm and stare into the face of the beast.
Hoping i don't get eaten alive this time.
