Pain Greater Than Measure

Standard

Unsettled discomfort
a gut that burns
Found when seeking a measure of life’s progress
when questions force doubt into pain

Pain is heard greater than measure
pain is felt greater than measure

But the one becomes mistaken as the other
discomfort is discomfort
pain measures only pain
and not the distance come
and not the progress made
and not the deep anchored intent

Pain is heard greater than measure
pain is felt greater than measure

But the measure of the steps
is in the stepping itself
and so with pain greater than measure
the next step is taken

One thought on “Pain Greater Than Measure

  1. For an early read and suggestions, thanks to S. In the end, the edits were not used. I felt it made for a different voice and somewhat different meaning. It may in fact have been better. S. has written before and I hope they will do so again. It is a voice that should be heard. Thank you S.
