Reflection/poem: Challenge

‘You don’t need to do that!
Why do you put yourself through it?
It’s totally unnecessary!’

Wise advice?
Maybe – in some circumstances.
Self-inflicted suffering
doesn’t seem to make sense
in the everyday world.

But there are times
when we have to face the facts –
‘no gain without pain’,
is the old saying.
