what's the point?
what is the lesson in this?
living with unending pain,
and no one hears me screaming in the dark...

what's the point?
what is the lesson in this?
my teardrops fall like the rain,
for no medicine comes close to the mark...

what's the point?
what is the lesson in this?
over the edge i am tossed,
and i've learned every inch of the abyss...

what is the point?
what is the lesson in this?
you've gotten your point across,
why are you making me suffer like this?

what's the point?
what is the lesson in this?
is it to make my life hell?
i cannot breathe in this ocean of pain...

what's the point?
what is the lesson in this?
i have learned my lesson well,
and you keep strapping me down with these chains...

what's the point?
what is the lesson in this?
will i ever acclimate?
will i have to get used to being burned?

what's the point?
what is the lesson in this?
will i ever graduate?
what is it that i am supposed to learn?

what is your point?

     what is your lesson in this?

          Teacher, i don't understand...

Karla, I think that your graduation will come when you have died and gone to heaven, to sit at the right hand of god, without pain for eternal life...granted I don't want to see this happen anytime soon, but for you to be pain free for but a day or two, I would gladly take on your pain for that time...As Kate said, this is your far you have passed and gotten an A+, but it is not over yet...! Peace, Ed & rufuz

So very sad. Often we don't understand and that is when our faith is tested the most. Great write.

Your twin has one answer;-) Excellent vent,Karla! hope it helps. I find my best method (besides prayer)is to deny it! It takes practice and dedication to so so, but it does work!

Karla, it hurts me to know others are hurting and
not finding relief. If it is emotional anguish, due
to a mood disorder, there are options, hon. You can't
go on this way, you know.

Oh Karla, this just got to me, I just wish you could find relief somehow...

I think the lesson is that no matter how much you may hurt or how bad you may feel, there is somebody who is a lot worse off. We have to learn to live with it as best as we possibly can and go on with our lives. Good lesson in this insightful write; very well done! BRAVA!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :(

Pain is really difficult to live with Karla..
I know...I have it constantly from fibro...
My mind tries really hard to accept it and
sometimes it works...other times I feel just
like you just wrote...know you are not alone..
and you are in my prayers...great expression
of what it is like to live with pain.....floria
