Pain As Task Master

by stewart

When pain and illness enter

All of our fancy philosophy

About good and evil, life and death

Fade like morning mist

On a hot summer afternoon.


In that moment, all we want

Is for the pain and illness to leave

And that we might be whole again.


Pain is a most cruel and jealous task master.
