"Be happy for what you escape!" A Trask quote got me to thinking, and inking.

Pain hits and at times is unbearable
so goes no parable
Life at times gets terrible
A simple smile seems like a
million miles away
Even then we still can't seem to
afford to pay
The devil likes to play
and on bad days he will seem to stay
until we finally decay

Some of us wish upon a four leaf clover
Many pray to God trying to get the
pain over
Finally all pain ends
except the experience transcends
Mentally we can still suffer the bends
Of course all options depends

Finally we are walking around well
with our minds still in hell
and others can tell
A simple smile still seems to fail
cause the devil is still hot on our trail
He be setting his next bate
Just sitting in wait
When the pain hits again a simple
smile will be too late
We may not get another chance
before entering heaven or hells gate

Quoting a fellow poet Trask

Be happy for what you escape
