"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. The thought of losing so much control over personal happiness is unbearable. That's the burden. Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us to fly..."
-Dr. Jack Hodgins (Bones)


Pain - distress or suffering; hurt

Pain.
We all experience it.
Whether it be physical, mental, or emotional.
But what do we do with this pain?

Do we go and cry to our loved ones?
Do we openly show it?
Do we hide it from everyone including ourselves?
Do we hide it, but let the guilt eat us on the inside?

According to Dean Winchester, a character on the show Supernatural,
“You shove it down and you let it come out in spurts of violence and alcoholism.”
I don’t mean that we should all do this, especially if we are under-aged.
My point is that people handle pain differently from other people.
But pain has many shapes and forms.

You have pain from injury.
Like when your bone fractures or you twist your ankle.

Heart Break.
You feel you heart.
It shrinks, it shrivels, it shatters into a million pieces.
But in reality, your heart is as good as ever.

Insult to injury.
The old saying, Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me! Is false.
Words do hurt.
Every mean thing you hear; You’re fat or I wish you would die is like a sharp spear piercing you.

But the most painful thing for humans is losing a loved one.

You spend all your time with them.
You comfort them.
They tell you they’ll be fine.
And then they lay there.
Lifeless.

You sob and you cry and you go to their funeral.
But does the pain ever go away?
No.
You live with it everyday.
You tell people you are fine, when you are not.
You try and keep them alive everyday.
But you can’t.

You realize that they won’t be there to hug you.
They won’t be there to congratulate you.
They won’t be there to talk to you.
They won’t be there.
What happens when you realize these things?

So, what do you do with your pain?
Live with it?
Deal with it?
Confront it?

I say that you should take your pain and turn it into a lesson.
Turn that sorrow from your break up and learn that you can be independent.
Learn that even though you broke your wrist, it will heal and be stronger than ever.
Tell people about how you feel instead of hiding it.
Turn to your family when you lose someone.
Show them that you feel sad.
Because without emotions, without feelings, without hope, what are we?
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
So, all I have left to say is believe in the power of hope.

Hope is what will keep you fighting through all this pain.
Hope will get you through the good and the bad.
Hope.

But the most painful thing for humans is losing a loved one. You spend all your time with them. You comfort them. They tell you they’ll be fine. And then they lay there. Lifeless. You sob and you cry and you go to their funeral. But does the pain ever go away? No.  You live with it everyday. You tell people you are fine, when you are not. You try and keep them alive everyday. But you can’t. You realize that they won’t be there to hug you. They won’t be there to congratulate you. They won’t be there to talk to you. They won’t be there. What happens when you realize these things? So, what do you do with your pain? Live with it? Deal with it? Confront it? This part really spoke to me the most. I loved this one! I also liked the last stanza but if I quote the entire thing it might be annoying to anyone else who comments. Anyway, I have a little advice. Do not drag out sentences that do not need to be dragged. In a poem, you CAN use sentences but sometimes it becomes too overwhelming and off beat with the rest of the poem. "Every mean thing you hear; You're fat or I wish you would die is like a sharp spear piercing you" is an example where it goes off. A few more suggestions: 1. Check your spelling, grammar, and for awkward sentences at least 3 times before you submit. 2. Put quotation marks around quotes even if you don't know who said it. Ex) "Sticks and stones...(blah blah blah)"  Good job! I can't wait to read more of your work. Sorry if my excessive comments were a bit annoying.
