Pain is Real

I am grateful for rejection,

Another push towards perfection. 

Pain is real, well,

Pain is my muse. 

Tears stream down my face,

Stained as war paint, full of grace. 

Pain is real, well,

Pain is my muse. 

Brush strokes jagged,

Breath becoming ragged. 

Pain is real, well,

Pain is my muse. 

This connection you arrest,

I am not weak; I won’t protest. 

Pain is real, well,

Pain is my muse. 

(“Pain is real, well,/ Pain is my muse” is credited to my dear friends, the band Denmantau, from their song “Pain is my Muse” off Busker’s Philosophy)
