    I will take the pain
    and use it, mold it
    into my new 'me'

    this pain is mine
    to embrace
    so my smile will
    deepen on my face

    I will take the pain
    feel its thorns
    ***** my skin
    draw my bath of tears
    to bathe 'me' in

    I will take the pain
    like the waves' sudden push
    experience the calming
    flow subsiding in the 'hush'

    Once I had the joy
    that showered down like rain
    I'll ever remember the pleasure
    ...and now
    I'll take the pain

    "Blessed is the one whom perservere trials, for when he succeeds he will receive the crown of life promised to all who love me." - James 1:12 (paraphrased)

    the pain last for just a night. Long enough to complete in you the finishing touches of preparation to walk into a blessing. I commend you onaccepting the pain and looking beyond it awaiting the sunrise...

    "Because in much wisdom there is much grief, and increasing knowledge results in increasing pain." Ecclesiastes 1:18
