Surprise Visitor

I have another poem, I hope it will bring you some comfort. Penny

Surprise Visitor

Pain came to visit again today.
I thought it had already moved in,
But what I understood as pain, was
In reality a heaping portion of pity.

It is good that pain stopped by.
There has been no mention of when
It intends to leave, but without it,
My pity would have gotten a deeper hold on me.

There is nothing sadder than a person
Who has pity for themselves, and none for others.
It is hard to be around a person like this.
Even for a short time.

Take two aspirins,
Grab a hold of yourself
And look around where you are right now.
There is always a good candidate who could use your pity.
