April - Poem 2

It's said with certainty and all the time
And then it's said once again
That struggle is good for the soul
And so is that weepy, wailing pain

Both, apparently, quell fear and doubt
And stop their incessant chatter
Although I hope someone would ask me first
I'd like to have some choice in the matter

So what if the pain won't really kill you?
So what if it makes you stronger?
I want to live like a quivering hedonist
And I want to be happier for longer.

Liked it...really one should have a choice in pain if pain is inevitable...or at least some say in the matter.
