Pain comes in many flavors with differing intensity
Some have it easy some have suffering propensity
A deep primal scream buried in the solar plexus
Fills our electric brain as we search for the nexus
The profound anguish running through our core
Is why we’re in a body it’s what we came here for
When we are pure spirit we’re liberated free
Here you have a vehicle demanding constantly
We’re no longer able to dart here and there
Now we are handmaiden to space time and fear
Also we are subject to corporeal pain
Injury disease suffering ordinary stress and strain
Our body is addicted to people and things
We can’t let go of longing at least that’s how it seems
Then one day we wake up say it’s time to let go
I do not want to hang on I just want to grow
That is the precious moment we let go of fear
We find that our dear pain is not very real
Practice to transcend thoughts that do entwine
Home is where you’re headed you’ll be there in no time
How much pain and suffering are you committed to?
Have you ever heard the mantra that suffering is optional?
What if the suffering option was discontinued and no longer available?
How would you fill the time and space?
