I would like to share this poem with Kera Bashline and all others who have undergone neglect.

Who Is Afraid Of Pain

Who is afraid of pain?

That feeling of

strength trickling

down to the last drop

but you resist giving in

letting mind take control...

As the countdown starts

one, two, three - close

your mind, resisting

death-urge you feel a surge

of strength renewing,

adrenaline, your second wind...

Who is afraid of failing?

Soon numbs the mind

and clouds reason

to go on with challenge

no, no, no - I cannot

Thus faltering, you died.

But when you say yes-

let us surely do it

one more minute longer

let's hold on tighter

make mind take control

team body takes order...

Don't be such a bore

pain is your teacher

even your ardent lover

Pain makes life richer

relationships better

be faithful, last longer...

Physical or emotional,

pain gives you release

from imagined near-deaths

Reaching peak of no return,

finding you still prevail,

scream ' Eureka - I'm immortal! '
