Pain is a powerful emotion
It gnaws at you from inside
Bullying the heart to
Spill forth the tears
Its grasp is inevitable
Exigent demands to be seen
Prominent in those somber eyes
Exuding emptiness and despair
It resides within the chambers
Of your soul ’til you let it free
By imprisoning pain
You’re punishing yourself
So answer its call and feel it
It’s the key to your remission
