The Hypothesis of Pain

By Rebecca Brown

pink.jpgWe have been chosen.
Given the chance to become stronger.
Put into the depths of discomfort,
for a reason.

It all makes sense.

Pain is a raw lesson,
but what lesson?
How to cry?
When to keep fighting, or die?

I am still winning.
Three steps forward...two steps back..

The cancer fights too.
This time, almost seducing my defenses.

Luring them with the offer of escape.
Come....and the pain will stop.

Not yet.
