Of pain, why am I, so fond?
With pain, do I have, an unbreakable bond?
My own pain, why do I enjoy more?
Unlimited pain, my heart has learnt, to store!
Pain gives me, so much pleasure,
That even joys, can’t match this treasure!
Pain has made me, so strong,
Now, I can bear pain, however long!
Pain has made me wise,
When pain comes, I no longer close, my eyes!
Pain has introduced me, to reality,
Which I have been avoiding, what a pity!
Now, I welcome pain, with both arms,
And happily embrace it, sans any qualms!
