So many things hurt

Hurt differently

Different kinds of damage

But all cause, pain

Pain that can’t be ignored

From  the stab of a knife

To a splash of molten fire

To the breaking of a heart

All cause pain

All need a salve

An ointment

Be it chemical or emotional

That may, or might not

Heal the wound

Reduced the pain, to an ache, then gone

The world has so much hurt

All cause pain

Yet in a world of pain, there is also pleasure

With hurt, also joy

Two sides of the same coin

No real one without the other

A trade-off, a compromise

But ask yourself

Is it worth it?
