The Blessing Of Pain

Walt's Writings

The Blessing Of Pain

There… I said it
Pain is a blessing

My chronic pain has made me realize
I am not as bad off as many others
it has shown me how blessed I am

sure I have pain
but I can still function
I can still help my wife
with laundry, dishwashing,
vacuuming and taking care
of our dogs, our horse
and mowing our 6 acres
it may take me longer
but I get it done

my pain has made me realize
how blessed I really am
I have the love and care
of my beautiful wife and
I can still write my poetry

I’ve also realized that I’m
not young anymore
I am blessed because my pain
has made me stronger than
those with none
