The way the human mind processes pain, suffering and stress is different for different people. What some find easier to comprehend making life easier to tolerate results in a desperate cry for help from others. “Desperation” is the reaction of an individual who has reached their threshold of tolerance and feels incapable of processing any further pain or additional stress.
Hanging my head in my hands,
Lost in thoughts I can’t explain,
Hearing noise in my head like a rock band,
Feeling an overflowing well of pain
Physical pain that makes me cry
Always given a new diagnosis why
Begging for a response to make the pain go away,
Sleeping is all that gets you through the day
It has me standing up on top of a chair
Without a real answer
Who? What? When? Where?
I kick it out real fast
Now, I know, for sure,
This cruel cycle won’t last.
