A question I would ask is why
pain’s not apparent to the eye?
Maybe we can see the signs
within demeanour’s steep declines.
But yet we cannot see the pain
that we get time and again.
It seems to be invisible,
and therefore not cognisable.
Our pain is felt so deep inside
that from all others it can hide.
So other people may not see
all the pain that swells in me.
I find it mildly quizzical,
when pain's no longer physical.
For very often I will find,
some of the pain is in my mind.
This type of pain tends to perplex,
as it’s confusing and complex.
Especially when it’s in the mix
with all those pains we cannot fix.
There are moments, humans can
seem so cruel to fellow man.
Their insight’s mighty primitive
and they are quite insensitive.
It seems that humans have evolved,
so they don’t want to be involved.
They have developed a belief
that means avoiding pain and grief.
So sometimes they will say and do,
some horrid things to me and you.
When this exasperates your brain,
then it exacerbates the pain.
