POEM: PAIN WITHOUT PLOT

At least when you have pain you know it.

You know why.

You feel it ripe in the pores because you were dumped

Or told your relative is heading toward a sleep full death.

But when you don’t have a frame of reference for pain

A reason for it

It sucks.

It makes the pain that more difficult

Because you don’t have a place to point to

Or make it known.

Pain without plot is the worse pain of all.

But it’s not forever.

-eml

Sometimes we go through hard times and we have trouble pinpointing what exactly the problem is; why you feel a certain way, which can be frustrating and difficult to handle.  It is important to keep in mind that your environment is constantly changing, as is your state of mind.  Whatever mood you are in or hardships you are going through are only temporary.  And if you have a hard time placing your problem know that it will pass.

Nothing lasts forever, and in this case, thank God for that.
