Pain or Pleasure


Grin and bear it!
From dumbbells
To cross fit ninja workouts,
From early commutes
To long unbearable hours,
From insufferable critics
To cultural and societal divides.

Sweat
Toil
Push yourself to the limit
As you work against your grain

Why?
Because they say
‘No pain, no gain’

Yet
Studies show
He lives longer
He lives happiest is he,
Who loves
Who is happy
Doing just what he does.
That’s Natures way.

Hormones, neurotransmitters;
Dopamine, one of the finest,
Released when you smile
Releases when you laugh
Released when you feel happy!

Side effect?
YES!
More energy
More intellectual capacity
More ‘Happy’

This was Nature’s plan
This is Nature’s gift

So say, ‘No’ to pain
Welcome pleasure
And take home
Your happiness!

Lover’s Arms

lover's arms

What is your lover’s kiss?
The meeting of two
A spot of tenderness
Somewhere to express…?

What is your soul mate’s shoulder?
Somewhere to rest
A strength to lean on
A place to let go…?

What are those loving arms ?
Steel bars for protection
Great cranes to carry your troubles
Comfort for you to lay in…?

But where is that one lover?
The one that stays when all others have come and gone
The one who loved you before you knew you where loved..

Close your eyes, go within
Feel the kiss of life as each breath comes
Lean on that shoulder as the outside dissipates
Know those carrying arms as weightless you become..

Your one true lover
Resides within and beside you

In your one true lover’s company
There are no woes

In your one true lover’s arms
You know you are home…..
