Darling Pain

To all who saw my pain yet turned away,
To all who sought to make my heart suffer,
Today this pain shall help and come to play.
Now your insults will serve as a buffer.
For all the weakness that I quickly lost
And can now withstand hard times much stronger.
And you have yet to figure the cost
With which you cause me to survive longer.
I praise the insult and welcome the pain
Because now it is your time to learn
From the times when I lay hurt and slain,
Soon you all will find that insults burn.
For now I overcome the trouble and find,
That this pain only brings me peace of mind.
