An analogy between a necklace and a person's pain

 copyright 2010 Sherry Bach

The Necklace
Knotted gold chain, wound up together left to right, top to bottom. I can't see the end or the beginning because it is tangled into a ball that lets no light through the crevices. Useless the way it is and not fulfilling its intended purpose, who will take the time to gently rub it between a finger and a thumb to loosen the sphere so that little by little a small portion can be freed; once that piece is free the rest is sure to follow as long as patience is applied. Then the snarled mess can begin to add beauty to whatever it is placed upon.

I can relate so well to this analogy. Sometimes pain is important. It serves a purpose, then when it goes away, it serves another purpose. Keep rubbing that chain.
