Part of Me


part of me - clouds

The pain weighs so heavy on my body,

Pressing deep into my chest,

Down into my bones,

Constricting every drop of my being.


Yet, the breath still flows

Light and free.

There is courage, hope, relief

As I recall that the pain is just a part of me.


No matter how sad, or mad, or defeated I want to feel,

The pain can never be bigger than me

Because the pain is just a part of me.

  1. Thank you!

    Will remember your “wisdom”, the next time my shingles’ pain (left side)takes over me.

    My “right side” will now scold the “left side” ew
