You know us
We are the Pain Warriors
The ones who have been blessed
With a variety of ways
To fight the chronic pain we live with
We write about our pain
Not because we want your sympathy
Not because we want you to feel sorry for us
We write about our pain because it helps
It helps us cope with it
It unburdens us
Makes us focus on our writing
Instead of our pain
So the next time you read
One of my poems about my pain
Please comment
But not about my pain
Comment about my writing

  1. I like this… a LOT. I hope you are staying far away from the virus in Tennessee. Here we are up to 44 cases, but thankfully no deaths. I am staying in, away from people as best I can. Stay safe my friend!
