MOUNTAINS OF PAIN

Pain is my companion, teacher, nemesis and muse.
It’s the only way I can feel those blues,
And write the words
That heal my heart
And free my soul
And make some sense
Of the insanity of this world!

Pain is my mistress, my queen,
The cross that I bear
And the thorns that I wear!
Every lesson I’ve learned,
Every bridge that I’ve burned,
Everything that I am,
Has been because of these
Mountains of pain!!

And everything I will ever be,
And all that I can hope to gain,
Will come to me
As I climb these mountains of pain!
Again and again and again and again……..

    Now I know that this will be a FEATURE Ramondo. This is what I think is what besides love makes a writer write with all of his raw emotions out in the open. Loved your words, pain is your nemesis, your mistress, your muse and makes you feel the blues. This poem should be inmortalized. An instant fav. Iris
