a letter to pain

hey pain,

i acknowledge you’re here and you’re trying to tell me something. maybe i need to slow down, maybe i need to rest, maybe i need to let my deepest fears and resentments free.

there is still a lot i need to unlearn, learn, relearn; it’s a never ending cycle. will i ever be free of you? will i ever be immune to you?

no, but pain is what makes us human. we’ll survive the storms you throw at us, one day at a time until it heals. instead of running away from you, i shall learn to understand your needs and see to it right away.

it will be tough, there will be bad days, but the peace within my mind, body, and spirit could only exist by learning to live in harmony with you.
