Life with pain

Life, I live
How can it hurt so?
I want to feel useful again
But how I don’t know

Experience of such physical pain
I’m soaking wet
Bathing in this heavy rain

Lost from my identity
I try to find some sanity
This pain has made me a stranger
I’m someone I no longer know
Once able to live
Now, numbed so

How can so many pass judgment
Of something they do not know?
Who can understand,
But those who know?
