the pain game

... sometimes for me, it's a life and death
struggle with pain, just going about my
daily routines

... self-preservation helps keep you alive,
but pain make you wonder whether living is
even worth it

... the old adage is: no-pain, no-gain
and from a very Zen perspective, it is an
obvious truth of life in this human universe,
that is, it's painful to be alive

... pain makes you mentally stronger, once
you learn to control it, by ignoring it

... pain is better than coffee at waking you
up to the true nature of reality

... thats why I like to sleep so much now,
the pain goes away in my dreamworld, my body
just feels numb

... I like feeling numb
