Pain Askew

Pain. It can change your entire world
And wipe the smile right off your face.
Thus to replace it with a frown
And turn your whole world upside down.

There isn’t one immune to pain
Instead, ’pon one and all it rains.
But we can manage to get thro’
The downs of pain--both me and you.

A positive song and attitude
Can save from grumbling platitude
And change one’s thinking and their view
When in the grip of pain askew.

Ah, one has to focus all anew
To change the image that pain drew.
