Pain.

You wake up in the middle of the night,

Feeling numb.

You get out of your warm blankets

Into the world where cold night persists.

Taking your hand to your heart, you try to feel.

You take a deep breath

Drawing as much air as you can

Whilst you sit and stare

The  night being a bit less empty than you.

And do you know why?

You have anaesthized your soul to pain.

You fear pain so much that you now have welcomed an eternity of not feeling any thing at all

Little you know

sometimes pain becomes inevitably important.

It is the pain that makes you able to feel at all.

It is the pain that makes your soul grow

It is this very pain you deny

But

You have to face pain in order to face yourself.
