Touches

Everyone has pain

Those are the words I hear echo through my mind as I look in your eyes

Everyone has pain

No life goes untouched from loss

Or grief

From smothered hope

Or crushed dreams

Everyone has pain

When your purpose escapes your grasp

Or when you think you’ve finally found your happy place

Until suddenly… poof! It’s gone, ripped away in an instant

Everyone has pain

Some more jagged than others

Some of us carry deeper scars

Some of us nurse non-healing wounds

Some of us are plagued in the night, every moment we close our eyes

Wounds

Pain

Come in all shapes and sizes

Pain is our true equalizer

It doesn’t see color

Creed

Status

Orientation

Pain touches everyone

Don’t let the ache isolate you

Like it does to countless others

Don’t let your pain win
