Life hurts

Life Hurts

Life is often good.
Today I have;
new keyboard,
new fountain pen,
new paper,
new opportunities to create.

New and overwhelming pain that does not respond to painkillers
that is not so good.
The pain meds change the pain to a roaring, low-pitched scream
from a screaming, high-pitched roar.
Slightly better is better than not better at all
so I will take that.

So, for now, life hurts.
