Sometimes all I feel is pain.

Sometimes emotional pain for myself like from over-work or stress,

Sometimes physical pain like an injury or illness.

Sometimes both,

Sometimes it's always painful.


But the worst type of pain that I feel,

Is the pain I feel for someone else,

When they are hurting inside,

The pain that I feel when that someone,

Is down and there is nothing I can do.


I know that person is in pain,

In an emotional way,

But this is one of those times,

Where there is nothing I can do,

To help someone when they are in need.
