He is as quick as a serpent.
He is as slow as a snail.
Painful as a brush of thorns.
Painless as a feather's touch.
Catched unaware and found real slow.
A suffering man may welcome him,
While a woman with a perfect life may not.
He is a friend to some,
And an enemy to all.
Others embrace like an old friend,
While you may recoil from his touch.
He visits us every day,
Some more than others;
A fleeting glimpse of what he is like.
Children, parents, boys, girls, young and old;
Some who take the journey come back.
Others do not.
Those who take that journey across;
He is their escort.
He helps so many every day.
I hope to embrace him like a friend.
To take me from a cruel world's grasp.
Some may fear him,
But he relieves us of our pains and worries.
He takes much away,
But we gain so much more.
Friends and families wait with open arms,

And I hope to embrace them.

Pain Makes Reality         

Do you feel pain?
Because if you don’t…...
You’re doing something wrong.
Every person fells pain.
Pain is what makes you human!
Pain is what makes you real!
Pain tells you what you can do!
Pain is what makes reality.

Reality is painful.
 A painless reality isn’t reality. Only dreams are painless.
And when you dream, you’ve left reality.
Dreams take you from reality.
And when you wake, your back to reality.

Those dreams you have, they will try their best to stay with you;
Each of them an opportunity for you.
And you will toss some away, never to be seen again.
But the ones you keep will change how you go through life.
You may never admit it,
But every one of us has a dream.
Everyone wants to be someone.
Everyone wants to do something.
Your dream is why you make choices,
Your dream is why you go through pain.

You want that kind of pain.
That pain will only help you grow.
That pain will either make you or break you.
Every outcome will be for your benefit.
The pain that breaks you,
It urges you to try that much harder.
Those who give up in defeat,
Lose the opportunity to feel the relief.
They will forever regret that lost dream.
And those who let the pain shape them
They are the examples of the rewards of pain.

Dreams and pain go hand in hand.
You can’t accomplish any dream without pain.
Emotional, physical, mental, or even spiritual.
Every pain you experience makes you that much stronger.
Don’t let your dreams die.
More dreams have died than people ever have.
People are responsible for murdering dreams day and night.
They deprive themselves of the pain of accomplishment.

You need that pain.
Pain will shape the reality you want,
If you fight through it.
Don’t stop your fighting.
Try. Every person can try.
If pain tells you can’t go any more,
Go a little farther, push a little harder.
Second by second, minute by minute
Every day every night.
Fight through the pain
Don’t give up.
Don’t ever tell yourself you can’t.
Every person can.
No one ever lived who couldn’t.
And believe me, when your dream is fulfilled,
When your pain is through,

The glorious reality ahead of you will make it all the more worth it.
