I can't recall
The pain of my
birth
Yet surely it
existed

Nor can I know
The pain of my
death
Until it is too
late
To fully savor

Thus I am left
To define
reality
By only the pains
between

nice pain-its the pain you feel if you love someone...that feeling you get when you say "i love you" and really mean it...
Bad bad-is when that person says goodbye never to come back
death pain-haven't had that...still to young to die.......and only the good die young..so we will grow old my mate....lol'But back to your poem
Very deep message in there..pain in death could be "Hell"? who knows..

if I defined reality by my pains, I'd have been cold and rotted through by now.

i like the frank tone you have captured- again your words are meaningful, and your style is clean.

yin/yang.. without pain we wouldnt know joy, we wouldnt recognize it when we have it..even simple pleasures can be savored.. but its a shame that men cannot know the pain of childbirth since it is followed my the ultimate joy! Your poem is really beautiful, Rog. Your truths seem to mirror your heart, letting the cynic soften a bit, for the cynical is no more reality than the fantasy..and truth is a matter of opinion. You make me think. thank you. katy.

Wonderful strike for the equitable honoring of grief and death, and the Queston.
