Pain and Healing……..


“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I’ve learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.” – C. JoyBell C.

    1. It doesn’t allude to the physical but rather emotional pain……. I guess I can’t really understand it but I do wish you all the luck finding a pain medication that can alleviate it….. If you don’t mind me asking, what happened?


      1. I got that the poem was emotional, but you can’t always separate the two. Too many things to describe in detail, stuff from an extremely rare decease in my knees when I was 8 years old that almost left me crippled, ankylosing spondylitis (extremely pesky), general joint issues, lymphoma (in remission) and various injuries from motorcycle racing in my youth and bicycle racing as an adult.


      2. I am sorry to hear that…… Spondylitis is excruciating (Neck Spondylitis, in my early 20’s which was managed by massage therapy and my mother’s persistence)….. Best wishes 🙂
