One Must Experience It
To Appreciate Joy
March 23, 2012
My Personal Experience with Pain
You don't know joy
Till you're introduced to pain
And we've become very good friends
Pain & I have
Gone our separate ways
But we always make amends
I wasn't able to recognize happiness
Till after pain was met
Now I know the difference between the two
Better yet -
I've come to know the pleasure there is to gain
Through my personal experience with pain
I consider it something of a precursor, an envoy
And making its acquaintance enables me
To really know joy
