When the time comes – National Poetry Month 2016 – Day23

painWhen it is time you find it difficult
but then some things are tough
like taking a thorn from you leg when you are a kid
it pains more than how much it hurt when struck
but you have no choice
you have to go over the pain to reduce the past hurt
life gives you things and then you lose it
a nature of life one needs to live with
you have no choice to escape pain
not escape the nature of the pain
feel it embrace it and move on
today might be the day
and then it will be over
who knows what other pains can be promised
over another forgotten hurt
