Pain is Inevitable. Suffering is optional / Poem by Pushmaotee Subrun

 
Poem by Pushmaotee Subrun
 
 
Pain is Inevitable
Suffering is optional
 
Pain is inevitable for life is not a bed of roses,
We simply cannot relax in comfortable poses,
The thorns are there to deal with daily,
As other problems crop up subsequently.
 
We should never give up in spite of thorns,
But tackle the bull by the horns,
Bravely, patiently and assiduously,
To ease our suffering continuously.
 
Surely, the cankerous path of life,
Will be smoother through steady strife.
Our suffering will be lessened unquestionably,
And leave us momentarily, if not permanently.
 
The effort should be on,
Our hope should always be switched on,
And Pain will have to seek another shelter to torment,
Somebody who is a hypochondriac and full of discontent.
